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. !!!!
