breakfast for dinner



when we have hardly anything in our fridge for supper, it's super breakfast to the rescue. the other evening, i dolled up our German Pancakes with blueberries, sliced bananas, and a sprinkling of powdered sugar. squeeze some citrus on top for a little taste of tang.

syrup, shredded coconut or homemade jam is optional.

I love german pancakes. I just made breakfast for dinner the other night too, apple cinnamon waffles!

Breakfast for dinner is one of my favorite go-to options! The pancakes look delicious.

Although many in America would call these "German pancakes," these guys are actually called Dutch Babies and are not a German recipe. Either way, they are STILL delicious! :)

FYI: German pancakes (Pfannkuchen) are actually very similar to crepes. I use my mother's recipe that has been passed down for generations of German ancestors. YUM!

Yum! I actually just had these (http://thisweekfordinner.com/2010/07/21/kaiserschmarrn-aka-emperors-pancakes-take-one/) for breakfast. Similar to yours, but thicker and WONDERFUL. With lemon and powdered sugar, blackberries on the side.

I stand corrected (partially). Apparently, (according this Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_baby_pancake) Dutch Babies were made in Seattle by a German-American restauranteer. It is supposedly a recipe derived from the original German pancakes. As a first-Generation American on my German side (and a German teacher), I thought I knew my German pancake origin! :)

Breakfast is my favorite meal and breakfast food especially - anytime of day! Love German Pancakes (we also call them Dutch babies). Never tried coconut on top, sounds yummy.

I love when my mom makes breakfast for dinner! French toast is my favorite.

We love German Pancakes. They are Sunday staple in our house. For what ever reason my little girl named them "Chicken Cake", but hey she thinks she is getting cake for dinner.

Lissa said...

That looks so yummy! I love having breakfast for dinner.

We had blueberry cornmeal pancakes for supper last week, my family loves breakfast for dinner. Something about it seems so novel. Your photograph is beautiful!

Johanna said...

Oh, I have never heard of German pancakes before! Here in Germany, we only have "pancakes" (called "Pfannkuchen") and "American pancakes" (called, well, "pancakes"). Hehe. So is this actually just one big monster pancake made in the oven? Intriguing!

Caroline said...

Sounds like the perfect dinner/dessert/breakfast!!!

andrea said...

This sounds delicious!

Eeny said...

Looks delicious - breakfast for dinner is always great.

Sassy Sarah, you are right - German pancakes (Pfannkuchen) are like crêpes. I guess no one here in Germany knows the Dutch Babies - and no one ever heard about the German chocolate cake - unless they've been to the USA. =)

Miranda said...

definitely one of my faves. brinner saves our bacon all the time.

Emily said...

I love german pancakes, but have never done blueberries and bananas as a topping... thanks for the tip!

Hannah said...

My kids are a split vote on liking German Pancakes, so I don't make them as often as I'd like.

I grew up on them, though. Delish. I've had them with berries before, but bananas sound yum! I'll try it next time.

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog about the tour de feet. And I'm equally pleased to "meet" you. I've just started glancing through old posts and I can already tell I'm going to like it here. Plus, German Pancakes are a family favorite at my house too.

courtney said...

oh you have GOT to be kidding me. these look so good, it doesnt even make sense.

(i'm just comin back after a few months of a blog break, i missed reading your posts!)

Rachel Swan said...

YUM! We call them monster pancakes at our house! We love topping them with vanilla yogurt, mangoes, and syrup! And peanut butter with strawberry syrup! I love the coconut idea! We will be trying that soon!
