Pannekoeken- A Good Dutch Pancake!


Growing up in a Dutch heritage, these cheap, filling, sweet treats were popular, with many Reformed, and Christian Reformed churches in the area having pancake suppers as fund raisers.. Remember breakfast restaurants that had the revolving stand of about six different kinds of syrup? Boy, I sure do! Last night, I decided to make these pancakes, along with an apple topping, served warm, mixed with butter and maple syrup..rich and tasty! Sausage links go well with this, also. It's the kind of topping you might see on a Belgian waffle, but why not a pancake?
As I write this, I have an almond-vanilla flavored cheesecake with a graham cracker crust baking in the oven for Easter dinner..probably will be topped with a chocolate syrup type of drizzle... I make a mean cheesecake, kids- believe me! Tomorrow I butterfly the leg of lamb, making it a boneless, marinated treat that will be charcoaled on the grill..Hope your plans for Sunday include a great meal, ending Lent!
Happy Easter/Passover/Etc. !!!!

Marjie said...

Easter dinner occurs on Saturday, so the kids who are going back to college get to indulge. Boneless leg of lamb here, too. Dessert is still undecided! Happy Easter, Buff!

DogB- It's a pancake- no more or less! the topping was fresh apples chopped, into a simple syrup, along with cinnamon, and maple syrup..heated until thick, not overly sweet and a little crunch in the apples..

Marjie- Great minds think alike!

Chef E said...

Pancakes Yum! I wish hubby was into breakfast, I may have to 'break' him 'first', before I get my way, lol, these look great!

Ily said...

Maple syrup AND apple topping mixed with butter?? OMG, I'll put that on anything!!

Your cheesecake sounds to die for!

Happy Easter, my friend!!

Barbara said...

My mother used to adore those pancakes...but she always used confectioners sugar and a few squeezes of lemon on hers. Not sweet enough for me!

We're settling this year for an herbed rack of lamb- which I love, but would really like to taste your grilled, marinated lamb leg!

Your cheesecake sounds divine!

Happy Easter to you and your family, BD!

Chris said...

I've never heard of those but they look good. Are they basically pancake batter but only sweeter?

Jeff B said...

This made me hungry for the apple pancakes my mom would make. A thin pancake batter with apple chunks, fried in a bit of Crisco, then topped with powered sugar. Really bad for you, but oh so tasty.

Hope you and the family have a great Easter.

A Year on the Grill said...

Of course I remember the revolving syrup...

And I would love to have found these pancakes... never heard of them, but they sound terrific!

buffalodick said...

Chris- Short answer- Same pancake, a little more sugar!
Jeff- Pancakes are so versatile! Happy Easter!
Griller- I was going to make Belgian waffles, but got lazy!

Just telling it like it is said...

My mouth is watering! Happy Easter!

John McElveen said...

OMG-- I'll take 3 Cholesterol pills JUST TO SMELL that!

WOW- and I'll bet that'll stick to each and every rib for quite a while?

Did you need anything sweet later? Or was it not that heavy?

John

buffalodick said...

Darngirl- Happy Easter to you!
John- Not all that sweet- wanted apple to be the star..

snowelf said...

Happy Easter morning Uncle Buff!!

I believe you make a mean cheesecake, that's for sure. ;)

I am also a huge fan of apple toppings. Whenever I would get elephant ears (You guys probably call them funnel cakes) you can get them with this yummy apple topping and omg, delicious. I could go for some of your apple topped pancakes right now... yum! Speaking of, I need to make some breakfast as the chilis are already trying to stuff themselves full of easter truffles.

Hope things are well with you!!

Snowniece- Happy Easter! Next post is on the cheesecake!

highlandsranchfoodie said...

ohmy...haven't had any of these for YEEEars! I was going to do a leg of lamb but switched to my favorite grilled chicken. It's a long boring story for the reason for the non-traditional Easter switch-up. ok, It involves wine, wanting to break out an expensive bottle that would pair perfectly and that the kids wouldn't appreciate but drink it down. We're going to sneak in that lamb over the next week. :-)
