This is the old original recipe for bacon pancakes. Farmer’s wives made these firm pancakes for the German workers (Hanneke Maaier) who came to help with the harvest. The batter can be made without yeast as well. In that case use cold milk. Nevertheless, it is important that the batter gets to swell for a while before you start making the pancakes. In order to make pancakes filling, you can add bread crumb. Buckwheat provides a special, full-bodied flavour and gives light coloured pancakes.
