We usually eat bread as lunch, as a traditional food in the Netherlands. I find that it’s just so delicious when you eat a delicious scented (preferably homemade) bread. But occasionally we deviate from that. Then, for example, we eat pancakes for lunch. Whereas in countries like America they often have breakfast with pancakes. Pancakes are not common in the Netherlands. We’ve got our own variety called pannenkoeken. The large thinner version of pancakes (but not as thin as crêpes). Are they mini-pannenkoeken or should I imagine something completely different.
Here I have taken the test. I adapted a recipe from guru Martha Stewart, who makes almost all of her dishes herself and got started. Conclusion: the pancakes are thicker, lighter, slightly sweeter and at the same time slightly salty. And very tasty, with, for example, homemade jam. But certainly also delicious without a topping. The children were very fond of this, so I can imagine this dish will come around more often at lunch time.
