Hootenannies (otherwise known as German Pancakes)

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Before I was married, I had never eaten a German pancake. After getting married, my husband told me how he loves a recipe for Hootenannies that his mom makes. I had never heard of Hootenannies (otherwise known as German pancakes). Come to find out that is what his family called German Pancakes.

After making them, it has become a staple in our house. It’s quick, easy and the whole family loves them. So if you haven’t given Hootenannies a try before, here’s your chance.

  1. I grew up on these. I only add a half stick of butter. They are so delicious! I love them with apple butter on them;) oh and I use gluten free flour. Turns out great!
