Pannenkoeken - The Staple Of Local Cuisine In The Netherlands

Written by CakiesByRachel

Dutch pancakes are not like American pancakes. They’re kind of a cross between an American pancake and a French crêpe. French crêpes are thinner and usually a little bit bigger though. I’ve grown up with Dutch pancakes called ‘Pannenkoeken’ in Dutch. In the Netherlands pancakes are often eaten for dinner. But they’re also easily eaten for breakfast and lunch as well. They’re super easy to make, you typically eat them rolled up. Dutch pancakes can be made sweet or savory. My favorite savory version is with bacon. Today I’ll be sticking with a basic pancake recipe which you can adjust to your liking.

How To Make Dutch Pancakes

You’ll need flour, milk, eggs, a pinch of salt and some oil. Optionally you can add a little bit of sugar and cinnamon. Which is what I usually add when I make them. I use vanilla sugar. (A full list of ingredients including measurements can be found in the recipe card below).
