1 1/2 cups
light corn syrup
The pancake is a nice departure from traditional pancakes.
The Buttermilk Sauce is particularly good. My family uses this sauce on pancakes and waffles as well.
This recipe is quite 'different', to say the least. We found the sauce tasty, but way too sweet and rich for our taste.
Awesome!! I've made German pancakes before but never with a sauce this good! It was caramel-like and delicious. I did reduce the sugar to 1 cup (still very sweet!) and cut down on the butter by 2 TB. The directions say to use a small saucepan, but I used a medium one, and it was just a few centimeters from boiling over! So use a large one. I will use this sauce for other things!
This recipe is so easy my beginning Food Science class fix it with no problems.I have two classes of 30 students and each group (of 4 students) did an excellent job and they loved it. We even invited the German class over so we could make it for them. I was a BIG success. This is a rating with 88 students and 2 teachers-5 star rating!
great recipe we enjoy this for a different kind of sweet breakfast treat on special occasions
Wow! This was great. I can't believe I made syrup. I have been looking for a good german pancake recipe, and although making the syrup takes a little time, it is well worth it. The whole family loved it. The syrup is versatile, so we are planning to make french toast with the rest. Thank you! This one is a keeper.
Loved these. The only problem is my family liked it so well I had to make another batch. The sauce, if you have any leftover is also great over ice cream.
The "pancakes" are very eggy but there are tons of eggs in french toast and it does remind me of crepes, like another review stated. The buttermilk/caramel syrup is to die for! It is very sweet but went well with the less than sweet pancakes. I did follow the receipe to the letter but I am sure some substitutions could be done without problems. Make sure you stir the sauce for the entire 7 minutes of boiling because you are making carmel syrup when you do this. The caloric content on these is huge but the taste is amazing! You might be able to make one batch of syrup to two batches of pancakes. Amazing receipe~! Stephanie
