Low-Carb German Pancakes

German Pancakes (also known as Dutch Baby Pancakes) are excellent during any time of the year for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dessert! They leave such an impression right out of the oven with their inflated sides and creamy, custardy middles. Plus, they come together with 6 ingredients in less than 10 minutes with about 20 minutes of cooking time. This low-carb version also tastes way BETTER than the original version!
