Mini Pancakes From Germany Are Tiny And Delicious

Gimme Some Oven

As far as breakfast foods go, is there anything more twee than a pancake topped with fruit?

Apparently, there is: mini pancakes topped with fruit. Not only are they tiny, adorable versions of regular pancakes -- they're also made in a muffin tin.

Also known as Dutch baby pancakes, pop-up muffins or Dutch puffs, these treats are made by combining eggs, flour, sugar and milk, and baking in an oven rather than cooking on a stove. Traditional toppings include sugar, vanilla, lemon, syrup and fruit. A number of recipes we stumbled upon used strawberries as a garnish.

A cafe in Seattle coined the term "Dutch babies" in the 1940s after the tweaked German recipe became a staple at their restaurant. Still popular at some American roadside diners, the dish is also easy to make at home.
