Enjoying a hot breakfast while camping always starts our day off right. And this recipe for a German Oven Pancake is surprisingly easy to make on a camping trip.
I got tired of the same old camping breakfasts, and so on a recent camping trip I took along a recipe card for German Oven Pancakes. I’ve never even had German Oven Pancakes, so I had no idea what to expect. But it seemed easy, and doable.
How I made German Oven Pancakes on a camping trip
Before we left, I mixed the ingredients and put them into a ziplock bag. It wasn’t on my menu until the final day, so it sat in the cooler for two days. By then, the ingredients separated and looked awful, but after shaking the bag, everything mixed back together just fine. For this particular camping trip, I had an outdoor campstove to cook with. But I think this will work just as well over an evenly-made campfire.
I melted the butter in a cast iron skillet, then poured in the mix I’d prepared at home.
I’ve never made german pancakes before, but it bubbled up perfectly and turned out pretty much just like the photo on the original recipe post from The Recipe Critic (found via Pinterest). I added fresh strawberries and powdered sugar. Supreme.
Toppings - whatever you like best! Will serve 2-4 adults, or 2 adults and 2-4 kids.

**A big note: I’m not a chef or even a great cook. I find recipes and adapt them to camping, but every campfire is different. If you think you have a better way of doing something, do it! After all, camping with kids is allllll about adapting and being flexible!
