Dutch Pancakes (Pannekoeken)

Dutch PancakesPancakes come in many different versions. My own pancake batter is mostly oatmeal and buttermilk, and sits in the fridge all night after it’s been mixed. I also have great memories of poffertjes in the Netherlands (if only the place that made them had been open more often) and crepes, which our chef covered in depth a few weeks ago. This recipe is yet another kind of pancake, another Dutch one, which can be rolled like a crepe around any filling you like.  It’s from the Silverstone Inn and Suites in Lancaster, Pennsylvania — Amish country, and a great place to get away to.


Dutch Pancakes (Pannekoeken)


  1. 2 eggs
  2. 1 Tablespoon of sugar
  3. 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  5. 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  6. 1 and 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  7. 2 and 1/2 cups of milk (could be more or less to make right consistency)
  8. cinnamon sugar (optional)
  1. Mix the eggs followed by each ingredient listed until you add the flour.
  2. When you add the flour also add about 1/3 of the milk to get a thick mixture and stir well to get the lumps out.
  3. After that add the rest of the milk (hold back about 1/2 cup) to get a nice smooth mixture about the thickness of half-and-half or a light whipping cream. It should easily run of the spoon. Add the remaining milk if needed and even a little more could be possible for the right thickness. (depends on the moisture content of your flour)
  4. Heat a 9-10 inch skillet over (medium/high) and add about a 1/3 teaspoon of margarine. Add about a soup serving spoon (6-8oz) full of batter and tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly. Cook until brown edges show (minute or two) and then turn over for 30 seconds to brown the other side. Stack on plate to keep warm (or in 200F oven) and repeat to make the rest of the crepes like pancakes.
Spread a light coating of cinnamon sugar on each and roll tightly. The filling can be anything you like including
  1. Maple syrup, honey, strawberry glaze, jelly, chocolate, cooked vegetables, minced meats or even spicy black bean sauce to make an appetizer. Serve at once (when rolled) and decorate the plate as you like.
  2. Eet smakelijk (Bon appetite),
