You can eat them sweet with banana, Nutella or Kinder chocolate for a sweet taste, or fill them with meats and vegetables for a savory treat. Fill the Pfannkuchen with whatever you want and enjoy!

Recipe for 2:



  • 125 g/ 1 cup of flour, sifted
  • 250 mL/ 1 cup of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp of sugar


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 125 g/ 4.4 oz bacon, diced
  • 1 large onion, small diced
  • 250 g/ 8.8 oz mushrooms, washed and quartered
  • 1/2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 100 mL/ ⅓ – ½ cup cream (or half-and-half)
  • ¼ cup parsley, chopped


  1. Mix the sifted flour with the milk, the eggs, salt and a pinch of sugar.
  2. Combine into a thin dough and let it rest for about 15 minutes.
  3. Then, cook in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes each side, or until brown to your liking.
  4. Makes 4 Pfannkuchen (big pancakes). If the dough is no longer thin enough to rise, dilute it with some milk or sparkling water.
  5. Warm pancakes and plates, which are later used for serving, in the oven at 60°C/ 140°F.

For the filling:

  1. For the filling, cook the roughly diced bacon in a teaspoon of olive oil for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Then add the diced onion and sauté until the onions are translucent.
  3. Next, sauté the cleaned and quartered mushrooms until slightly softened, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the tomato paste and cook for one minute, then add the cream and whisk to combine.
  5. Bring the sauce to a boil briefly and season to taste.
  6. Add chopped parsley as a garnish before serving.
  7. To serve, place pancakes on a plate and spread them halfway with 1/4 of the filling.
  8. Fold it in half or roll it.

Enjoy with white wine or cider, and a crisp salad with yogurt dressing. It’s a very easy and quick dish. Pfannkuchen are similar to pancakes and the french crêpes. It‘s really fun!
