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.

    Hi!! Made these tonight :) So great!
    Have you ever made brownies in a cupcake pan? Do it :)
    My husband wants me to try them like an omelet, with bacon and cheese as the toppings. I thought that was quite brilliant of him so I thought I would pass it on! We also thought about doing them with sausage gravy!

      Sounds like an awesome idea, thanks for sharing! I love how there are endless possibilities with this. I’m glad they turned out for you! I will definitely have to try brownies in a cupcake pan soon. Oh my goodness I looooooove brownies!

    These resemble pop overs. There are so many things you can do with them. I thought I’d also tell you about a great sugar free maple syrup. It’s Mrs. Butterworth’s. I’ve tried other sugar free maple syrups and I hate them. However, Mrs Butterworth’s is by far the best. A little cream cheese, maple syrup or fruit. I love Greek Gods Honey Greek Yogurt. Not the vanilla and honey one but the honey flavored one. THAT is to die for. Add some fruit and it’s almost like desert. Makes great smoothies too. thanks for the recipe, I will try it and I’m sure that it will be a family favorite. I love it when members share their ideas!! :)

    When we made the full sized ones we sometimes filled it with a mixture saw where you cook apple slices, onions and kielbasa sausage in butter till soft.
