Mini German Pancakes are perfect for a topping station so everyone can make their own! Use your favorites and know everything will work beautifully!
The possibilities are truly endless and that's what makes this recipe so amazing! There are so many toppings to pick from and so little time to try them all and choose your favorite!
Our favorite is strawberries, bananas, whipped cream and syrup! We have also filled them with some nutella or chocolate chips and bananas, just chocolate chips, sausages and syrup, all kinds of different fruit and even just plain old butter and syrup.

I love to create a topping station so everyone can make their own! Line every topping up and once their pancakes are ready everyone lines up and makes them just the way they want!

Can you make German Pancakes ahead of time?
In my experience these pancakes are best served fresh, like so many things, and I always try and serve these fresh myself. That being said you can make them ahead of time and keep them in an airtight container inside your fridge for up to two days.
Can you freeze German Pancakes?
When freezing I recommend wrapping each piece in plastic wrap and placing them all into an airtight container or resealable freezer bag, with as much air removed as possible, for up to a month.
How to reheat German Pancakes?
To reheat place the amount you need on your counter for at least 15 minutes to defrost or get to room temperature. Place them on to your baking sheet or in to your muffin pan and cover them loosely with tinfoil.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 10 minutes or heated through.
I don't recommend a microwave at all but it will work if it is a necessity. The pancakes will harden and have a funny texture fast if microwaved.
