Tutorial Thursday: Puffy Eggs & Buttah Syrup

So this was General Conference weekend.
I love watching in jammies, on the couch, with the family.
Traditionally, I make pancakes, bacon and eggs for Sunday morning breakfast.
However, we had just had such a meal a few days prior for Brenner.
Plus, Costco was out of turkey bacon on our Friday night trip.

So I decided to make German Pancakes.
The kids have dubbed them Puffy Eggs.

And if you're going to have German Pancakes,
then you definitely need Butter Syrup.
Or as I refer to it - Buttah Syrup.
(love me some Paula Deen)

Because then you get something oh-so-lovely as this!

So today I'm sharing the fab recipes with you.

German Pancakes
aka Puffy Eggs
6 eggs
1 c. flour
1 c. milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 T sugar
3 T butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut butter into three chunks and place in bottom of heavy 9x13 pan.
Place in oven to melt the butter.

Blend eggs in the blender; add milk, flour, salt and sugar.
Blend well.

When the butter is sizzling,
and butter covers entire bottom of the pan,
pour your batter into the pan.

Bake at 450 degress for 20 minutes

Pancake will rise up!
Thus earning them the name Puffy Eggs!


Butter Syrup
aka Buttah Syrup

1 c. sugar
1/2 c. buttermilk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cube margarine

Boil the above ingredients in a LARGE SAUCEPAN for 1 minute.

Add 1 T coconut extract.
Bring to boil again, and boil for an additional minute.

Traditionalist use 1 T vanilla, but I like the coconut extract better :)

Before I even READ your blog I said, "Those aren't fluffy eggs, those are German Pancakes!!!!" These are SO easy to make and a FAV in this household. But we make "German Pancake Syrup" for them. It takes a bit, but it is SOOOOOO good and caramel-y.
1 1/2 c. sugar
3/4 c. butterfmilk
1/2 c. butter
2 tbsp Karon Corn Syrup (light)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla

You have to stir CONSTANTLY or it goes EVERYWHERE, but it is SOOO good! You stir it all together over medium-high heat and boil for 7 minutes (literally stirring constantly) and then after the 7 mins add the vanilla and stir it all together. YUMMY!!!!

My mom makes these. I love them!!

Interesting... I've also never heard of that recipe and I'm German, too. :-)
We make our pancakes in a pan on the cooker and not in the oven. Furthermore, nobody in Germany eats syrup! We don't like that at all. We eat our pancakes with sugar or fruit.
So if the person who gave you that recipe pretends to be German, he or she must be lying! ;-)

Just made these- they were wonderful! I halved the recipes and added some cinnamon, allspice, and vanilla nut butter extract to the syrup! this is a keeper.
