These pop-up muffins, or German pancakes, are fun and unique breakfast that is sure to impress!



  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • dash salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp orange zest (optional)
  • assorted condiments for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Blend first seven ingredients (milk thru orange zest) in a blender. Be careful to see that any flour clumps get well-blended. Grease muffin tins well and distribute batter evenly between 24 tins. (My tins were slightly less than half-full.) Bake for 15 minutes, or until puffy and golden on top.
  2. Served with your favorite toppings. (Mine included sliced strawberries, maple syrup, and a light dusting of powdered sugar.)
