Mini German Pancakes with honey-orange berries

I adore these mini version of German puffed pancake so much every time I see someone pinned it on Pinterest.  They are such cuties!  I thought to myself that I’d make them one day.  This is the day. Wooohooo!   These mini pancakes look very similar to popovers, except that these pancakes use more eggs and less flour than popovers.  However, the results are almost identical.  They are puffed and light and gorgeous and awesome!   I made popovers once and loved it!    Did I mention that they are awesome! 

The most awesome part of making these mini pancake is that they are sooooo quick and easy to make with a few ingredients.  Since they are so light and puffy, it’s so perfect for breakfast with a good cup of coffee or your favorite tea on the weekend morning.   Believe it or not, I had 5 of them and didn’t even want to stop!   I didn’t feel bad at all because I went for a little hike every day!    I will absolutely be making them again soooon.

Berries compote
1/2 cup of each cut strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries
1 tbsp. honey
1/4 cup (half of orange) fresh squeeze orange juice
: toss all the ingredients together and set aside

Pancake batter:  make 12 muffin-size
3 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter (cold or room temp is fine)
1 tsp. fresh squeeze lemon juice

1. Preheat the oven to 425’F    
2. Beat all the ingredients in a medium bowl, except the butter
3. Cut and divide the butter evenly into the non-stick muffin pan  
4. Put the muffin pan in the hot oven and watch carefully for the butter.  Once the butter melted, pull out the pan
5. Fill the pancake batter evenly into the muffin pan (about 1/2 way)
6. Bake for 13-15 minutes (mine was exactly 14 minutes) to light golden brown color on the edges and take them out.  The pancakes will puff up high but will flatten out almost immediately when pull out from the oven
7. Serve immediately with berried compote, or jams of your choice (and a cup of coffee or tea!)  *dusted with powdered sugar is optional!
