The Best Pancake Mix Recipe for Popeye Pancakes

Pancake Mix RecipePopeye Pancake Mix Recipe

The German Puff Pancake in my family has always been known as Popeye Pancakes.  I don’t know where that name originated from but it’s how I refer to them and what I’ll be calling them from here out. Popeye pancakes are very simple to make; just a few ingredients for this Pancake Mix Recipe in a blender, a hot pan and an oven and within 20 minutes you’ve got a voluptuous mountain range you can’t wait to sink your teeth into.  Thanks to the amount of eggs in this recipe as well as a few other key ingredients, I’ll be showing you how to make a very puffy and sweet melt in your mouth Popeye pancake.

Pancake Mix Recipe Ingredients

1/2 cube butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 banana
1 oz. Triple sec
1 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups flour
6 eggs
powdered sugar

Directions for The Pancake Mix Recipe

Everything I’ve listed except for the butter will go in a blender or mixing bowl and whipped up until it is evenly portioned.  The butter needs to go in a preheated oven set at 375 degrees f. in order for it to melt before adding the Pancake Mix Recipe.  Use a 11 by 8-ish pan so the batter has room to rise.  Once the butter has completely melted within a few minutes of putting it in the oven, remove the pan and poor all of the Pancake Mix Recipe batter dead center into the middle of the pan.  Place the pan back into the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.  Once the pancake rises and turns a golden brown around the edges of the cake it is ready to be pulled from the oven and served.  Powdered sugar is often sprinkled over the top like French toast or funnel cakes, and often served with syrup.  In this recipe, you do not have to include the banana or the triple sec.  A traditional German Pancake Mix Recipe does not include those 2 ingredients.
