So I found this recipe, and made German apple pancakes for the first time today. They turned out great!
The cookbook I have says that German Babies can be substituted if Dutch Babies are not available. The German ones are a little plumper, not quite as stringy, but still very good. If you can get a German baby from the lower-lying regions of the country, there is hardly any difference at all!
