Pfannkuchen, also known as German pancakes or Dutch babies, are a traditional German dish made from a simple batter of flour, eggs, milk, and sugar. They are typically cooked in a skillet and served as a sweet breakfast or brunch dish, often with toppings such as fruit, powdered sugar, or maple syrup. They can also be filled with savory ingredients like cheese and herbs for a more substantial meal.
