Creative Toppings for Muffin-style German Pancakes!

What can you do with German pancakes? When you do it muffin-style, it comes out with a nice little pocket where you can put all sorts of creative fillers. Here’s a couple ideas for some yummy toppings, some you probably haven’t even considered.

Fresh fruit!

  • Raspberries
  • Peaches
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas

(You could even do it crepe style and add vanilla pudding, Nutella, toasted coconut, almonds, and whipped cream!)

Greek Yogurt!

  • I tried stuffing the muffins with Greek Yogurt, and it was a winner. This was the first time I had ever used Greek Yogurt (it was on sell at WinCo, so I thought I’d get some for the experience – it’s usually super expensive). It was super yummy! I prefer just using plain – the vanilla is a little too sweet for my taste. If you drizzled a little bit of maple syrup over it and put mixed berries on top, it comes out just the right sweetness! I’ll definitely be doing this again.

Chicken salad bites!

  • German Pancakes for lunch? Why not? The idea just popped into my head one day, so I tried it out for lunch and it totally worked! They are light and fluffy and so it tastes kinda similar to crescents, just a bit more eggy and a tad heavier. I loved it! I whipped up some chicken salad and spooned some in the middle and wala! Now I do this with all my German pancake leftovers for lunch. Just warm them up in the microwave and you’re set. Next time I want to try it with egg salad. And I bet seafood salad would be yummy with it too.
