Spekpannekoeken – Bacon Pancakes From Holland

A recipe from “Berømte Retter” (Famous Dishes) published by Ernst G Mortensen in 1970

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.
