The Best Puff Pancakes

Puff Pancakes are amazing and I fell in love with them from the start.  My family, however, always called them Popeye Pancakes.  I don’t really know why.  All I remember is being very young when my older sister came home with the recipe, from the sleep over she had just had at a girlfriends slumber party.  She raved about them and my siblings and I have been eating them ever since.  I know that most folks call them German Puff Pancakes and that others like to cook them Dutch Oven style but, other than that, I can’t tell you the history behind them because honestly, I’m sorry to say, I’m not really interested. :-p

Baking Puff Pancakes

One of the things you should know about Puff Pancakes is that they shrink down, considerably.  Clearly they get their name from the amount of poof the pancake gets when it puffs up during the baking but, after only a minute out of the oven, the size is drastically cuts in half.  So if you’re wondering what the hell happened to your Puff Pancakes when they deflate, like a flat tire, understand that this is completely normal.

Additions for Puff Pancakes

The great thing about these pancakes is that you can add just about anything you want to them, including fruit or vegetable toppings.  You can even bake them into the Puff Pancakes themselves, if you prefer.  Other options can include Meats like ham, sausage or bacon.  Personally, I usually just prepare mine the way I show you how to do it in the Video Recipe Tutorial, only I usually make a larger batch for the whole family, like the picture above in the Casserole dish.  And this recipe is large enough to bake in a 9×13 Casserole dish, btw.  I like to cut it up into 8 equal servings and serve it with Maple Syrup or my Homemade Berry Syrup.

Other Breakfast and Brunch recipes you might be interested in are my Oreo Waffles, Potato Waffles with Cheese, Crepes with Cherry Topping and my Breakfast Burrito with Chorizo.  I also have an Ultimate Omelette and an Egg Bread Bowl you might want to check out.

Oreo Waffles are the BEST!

There are all kinds of different ways to make an Oreo Waffle and I’m here to tell you that they are the best.  Especially if you dress them up the way I like to do mine, here in this recipe.  And just so you know, this isn’t as much of a recipe as it is an ingredients list of things to buy with an instructional video that shows you how I like to do it.  So if you’re an Oreo Cookie fan and you love Waffles, you better check this out because it is easy, delicious and fun to make.

Oreo Waffles are Easy

This is a very simple way to make Oreo Waffles without having to make them from scratch.  I think a lot of people like to just buy a pre made Waffle mix to make it easier so they can just add the minimal ingredients, anyway.  But, if you’ve got a favorite homemade recipe you want to stick with, be my guest.  And once you get that all whipped up, all you’ve gotta do is add some crushed Oreo Cookies.  It makes a real fun addition to a normally plain and basic waffle.  Then I like to slap some Vanilla Frosting in between two waffles, just like a cookie, and add my Homemade Berry Syrup and whip cream.

Also, be sure to check out my Crepes with the Cherry Topping and my Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies in the links below.

Oreo Waffles Ingredients:

1 box Waffle Batter Mix, pre made
1 bag Oreo Cookies, 4 Oreo’s per waffle
1 cup Vanilla Frosting, 2 tbsp per square/triangle
Whip Cream to taste
Syrup of your choice, I use my Homemade Berry Syrup

Be sure to watch the video tutorial for these Oreo Waffles and I’ll show you how easy they are to make.

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.
