Oh yum! These mini german pancakes were the perfect thing for breakfast the other day. There is something about poofy food, you just can’t help it, you have to love it. I don’t know what it is, but when something is all poofed up it just seems to say “Yes, I am amazing and will taste amazing so go ahead and dive in.” Oh, it’s just me that thinks that? Ok, well I’m sticking to it, things that come out of the oven all puffed up always make me want to chow down.

Oh, but don’t you worry, I feel the same way about berries which is why even after the middles are down on these baby German pancakes I still think they are ridiculously delicious.

Wasn’t this a great way to start our 4th of July morning? I thought so. Plus, minis are always more fun. Don’t know why. Usually it’s bigger is better, tv’s, houses, boats etc, but when it comes to food isn’t it kinda fun to have pop ’em sized food?

My husband had a roomie that always made German Pancakes and while I don’t have Jordan’s recipe anymore I do have mine and guess what, I think mine are just as good! I knew my husband would go crazy when he saw what I was making and I was right.
I liked mine with berries and powdered sugar, but of course the hubs had to have his with syrup. You can do whatever your little heart desires, but I do promise you one thing, no matter what way you serve them you and your fam’ is going to love Baby Germans
