Sweet & Savoury Pannenkoeken Dutch Pancakes
Show Notes

On this episode of Three Kitchens, Erin makes a  Dutch pannenkoek (plural pannenkoeken ).  It's a pancake that is much thinner than a traditional American pancake (but not quite as thin as a French crepe).

Pannenkoeken are made from a simple batter of eggs, milk, flour, and a bit of salt. They can be enjoyed plain, with syrup or a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Or, better yet, add any sweet or savoury toppings you love. The sky is the limit! But keep in mind, you want those toppings to be sliced relatively thin because they are added to the pancake batter during cooking, so they need to cook pretty fast. 

Erin made our savoury pannenkoeken with bacon, leeks and grated potato. Be sure to take note of how she preps those potatoes to minimize the starch and ensure they cook quickly.

The sweet version she made was with apples and cinnamon. Simple and delicious! A sweet pannenkoek can be dusted with powdered sugar or topped with maple syrup.

The key to success with this type of pancake is flipping it in the pan, as they are traditionally made quite large (one fits a dinner plate). Give it a try and enjoy the trial and error, because no matter what, it's going to taste great!
