Of course we all know the famous American pancakes, but did you know that we Dutchies have a similar tasty pancake too called pannenkoeken?

It’s a cross between a French crepe and an American pancake. We love to eat pancakes in The Netherlands. We stuff them with all kind of sweet and savory stuff. Sometimes even a mix!

This is really the best dutch pancake recipe out there! These pancakes turn beautifully golden, stay deliciously soft, but yet slightly crunchy on the sides. The pancakes are easy to make and very, very tasty.

I'm sure you'll love these Dutch pancakes as much as I do!

  • 500 ml milk
  • 250 gr all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs

Heat a small pan over low heat and melt the butter. Remove from heat the moment the butter has melted.
Put the eggs, sugar, salt, milk, flour and melted butter in a big bowl. Mix until smooth with your electric hand whisk.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a bit of butter or oil to coat the skillet. Wait until hot.
Slightly lower the heat and take out your ladle.
Use just enough batter to coat the pan with (about 80 ml) and swirl it around. 
Cook the pancake until it gets dry on top and detaches from the pan. Should take around 2 minutes.
Flip the pancake and cook for another 1-2 minutes until golden.
Remove from pan and repeat the same with all the pancakes

    Hooray for Dutch pancakes. I love to add cooked bacon bits and chopped apples, tossed in cinnamon, to the batter. A bit of butter and brown sugar or syrup and I am in heaven. Fond memories of Saturday night dinner as I grew up.
