Who doesn’t love any food more when it’s served in individual form? I know I do. It looks fancier and it makes for a great party food. Plus, with a food like these your kids will consider them to be cupcakes. My 5 year old and 3 year old were highly anticipating eating one of these “cupcakes,” as they called them. I guess we could call them pancake cupcakes :). Whenever cupcakes are in the title I’m always in.
I’m fairly new to german pancakes, I made them for the first time 2 years ago and I totally fell in love. They are simple and require minimal pantry staples yet they have such a unique texture and delicious flavor. In some ways these remind me a bit of french toast because of that milk and egg custard flavor yet they are somewhat like a traditional pancake because they end up being rather flat.
