This recipe brings back memories. Traditional Dutch pancakes. These are bigger than regular pancakes but so delicious. Would you like to see how you can make traditional Dutch pancakes? Lets get started!
During our Summer vacations we would stay in our caravan for three weeks. It was a small caravan with a mini kitchen. Somehow my father managed to cook up dinner in that little caravan every evening. When we were asked what we would like to eat the answer was always the same, pancakes.
Which was quite a task because how do you bake approx. 20 pancakes and keep them warm in such a small caravan? Keeping them warm was probably the easiest task as the caravan would be like an oven in the Summer. But making the batter and cooking the pancakes were the real challenge. He managed to make it work every time.
Traditional Dutch pancakes are so yummy and much larger and thinner than regular American pancakes. You can get boxed pancake mix but are easily made from scratch. All you need is:
- Whole wheat flour
- Baking powder
- Pinch of salt
Take a big pan to make these pancakes. I have a great nonstick frying pan that has never failed to produce great pancakes or eggs. You usually eat them with icing sugar, sugar syrup, brown sugar or granulate sugar. However you can also make them with bacon. Just bake the bacon first and put the pancake batter on top.
You can even turn it into a pizza. Just use a little more batter in the pan and add vegetables and cheese.
Depending on the size of the pan this recipe yields between 12-16 pancakes.
