A pannekoek (plural pannekoeken or pannenkoeken) or Dutch pancake is a style of pancake with origins in the Netherlands.

My opa used to say that if you ain’t Dutch you ain’t much.   This recipe is an old family tradition.  All the way from Holland this breakfast treat can be made with several twists.  The 2 flavors I created today were cinnamon and apple and cinnamon and vanilla.

  • 3cup milk
  • 3cup flour
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 1cup sugar
  • 2 apples, peeled and diced or other fruit
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1cup sugar
  • 1teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla optional

  1. Heat oven to 410°F.
  2. Beat eggs, flour, milk, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl on medium speed for approx. 1 minute.
  3. Prepare apples or other items and fold into mixture.
  4. Melt the butter in a 9×13 glass pan and then pour egg mixture in pan.
  5. Combine sugar and cinnamon or other flavors and sprinkle over mixture.
  6. Bake uncovered until puffed and golden, about 25-35 minutes.
