Cooking Instructions Simple German Pancake Recipe

– Place flour into a bowl, add milk or water, whisk well until dough is smooth.

You should get a thicker dough, it should not be thin.
– Let sit for 30 minutes.

– Heat butter in a non-stick pan.
– With a ladle add the dough and spread it evenly around in the pan.
– Turn the pancake when you see that the dough has become somewhat firm on the surface.
– Always add some butter to the pan, the pancakes shouldn’t swim in butter but you need a good amount.
