Easy Keto Mixed Berry Skillet Pancake
Don’t you just love pancakes? I do. However, all the pouring and flipping just takes forever. I have made a keto skillet pancake that is so super easy that you could even have this for a weekday dinner. What? Pancakes for dinner?! It only takes a couple minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to bake and dinner is done. I love easy no fuss dinner, especially ones as tasty as this skillet pancake.
Not Exactly German Pancakes But Still Delish
My husband used to make German pancakes for dinner (or Sunday brunch) before we started keto. I wanted to create something similar to that, but in keto form. This is not exactly German pancakes, but it is close and delicious just the same. In the German pancakes that my husband would make he would put sliced apples in it. To make it more keto friendly I have added mixed berries instead and topped it with whipped cream (we used to do that anyway before) or you could dust it with powdered erythritol.
So Satisfying and Filling
I have made this a couple of different ways and I like it best the way I have it in the recipe. However, you could top it with the fruit after it cooks or mix the fruit into the batter and then bake it. Whatever way you want to make it I am sure it will be yummy. This makes 4 big pancake wedges or 8 smaller ones. It is super filling and satisfying. I make this for my husband, myself, and my two kids (one adult man and one older teenage boy).
Make it the way you want!!!
This could also be made without fruit and flavored with extracts or emulsions. I also made this with banana emulsion and walnuts and it was really good. You could also do blueberries or sugar-free chocolate chips, just like you would for regular pancakes. The pancake is a base that you could add different flavors to.
