Dutch Pancake Recipe

I made brunch for Mr. Right and me on New Year’s Day, and for some reason making a Dutch pancake seemed like a good idea.  My late mother-in-law used to make them for Jordan as a special treat.  I paired it with scrambled eggs mixed with turkey sausage and cheddar cheese and added a fruit salad.  It was a delicious way to start out the New Year.  I thought you might enjoy a Dutch pancake recipe so you can fix it for your own family.

    Hi Janette, as a true Dutch woman I would like to give you some alternatives on the recipe. The more easy way to make a pancake is bij using a baking pan ( in Dutch: Koekenpan, the opposite of a Pannenkoek=Pancake) …and bake it. Then you can save on the eggs, for it does not need to get thick. A plain pancake consists of flour, milk, some eggs…just mix flour and eggs and a bit of milk and add milk until you have a not to thin mixture. Get a heated pan where butter has been melting. Then add the mixture until it covers the bottom of the pan and bake until it dries out on top. Then flip the pancake on the other side. This needs a handy Dutch pancake-expert but you can do this with another plate. Put it on the pan, turn around and then slide the pancake back into the pan. You can make the most of it by combinations like putting cheese on top or in between and bake it off. Or add bacon with the baking or have a sweet combination by using (maple?) sirup on top at the table. The Dutch have a special sirup for pancakes and that’s the most traditional way you can eat your Pancake/Pannenkoek

    Dutch Pancakes were often Sunday Night Supper at our house. Mother would use leftover bacon or sausage. Recently, I saw they were on the menu at Milktooth, one of the wonderful new Indianapolis restaurants–they serve interesting breakfasts daily. I like how you presented your version of this classic.
