Besides my love for ice cream, I am also a big fan of Nederlandse Pannenkoeken. Or as it is described in English Dutch Pancakes. This is different from Souffle pancakes or American Pancakes. These Dutch Pancakes are a lot thinner and so easy to make! In the Netherlands this is counted as part of the main dish, but you could also count the dish as a dessert. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Dutch Pancakes.

What is the definition of Dutch Pancakes

The meaning of Dutch Pancakes is:

”A Dutch Pancake consist of flour, egg, milk, and sugar. It’s fried in a frying pan. The pancakes are eaten rolled or folded with savory filling. The pancakes can be eaten hot or cold, but mainly they are eaten hot”.

Dutch Pancakes

History of the Pancake

I always find it interesting to know where the dish actually comes from. Pancakes are really Dutch pride, but does the original come from the Netherlands? After a long search I found something about the history. The first mentions of the pancakes do not come from the Netherlands, but from China and Nepal. It was taken to Europe around the 12th century. The main ingredient then was buckwheat. Buckwheat cultivation in Europe took place around the 13th century in the Netherlands and Belgium. An old recipe for making pancakes showed that the ingredients list consisted of: buckwheat, water, milk, melted butter, eggs and a little flour. The ingredients were mixed well together to get a batter. Then the batter was baked. Yet there is a bit of a difference with today’s Dutch Pancake.

Dutch Pancakes Recipe

A Dutch Pancakes recipe is so easy: you need 5 ingredients: eggs, milk, flour and sugar. For baking you use some butter. First you start with adding the eggs in a bowl. Start mixing the eggs. After mixing you add the milk and the flour. Mix everything together. You will get a smooth batter. The texture is something thicker than milk. I can image than you think how on earth is this going to be a pancake. The mixture is so thin! Trust me, everything is works perfect!

For a sweeter taste I use vanilla sugar in the mixture. This ensures a really amazing sweet flavor. After adding the sugar mix it together. Take a baking pan on medium heat and add the butter. When the butter is ready add a scoop of pancake mix in the pan. The biggest rule for making Dutch Pancakes: the first one will fail. I don’t know why this is, but when you making the pancakes, the first one is never good. With this recipe you can make between 8 and 10 pancakes. You will notice that the pancakes are really thin when flipping them. When you serve them you add for example sugar on the pancake and roll them up. You don’t stack them like American Pancakes, you eat one pancake at the time!

How to make Dutch Pancakes in Steps

Below you can find the summary of the steps:

  1. Grab a bowl and add two eggs.
  2. Mix the eggs together.
  3. Add the milk and the flour. Mix everything together.
  4. Add the vanilla sugar and mix everything together.
  5. Take a baking pan on medium heat.
  6. Add the butter to the baking pan.
  7. Add a scoop of pancake mix.
  8. When you see that the top isn’t ”wet” anymore you can flip the pancake.
  9. The moment the pancake is a little bit brown on both sides the pancake is done!
  10. Put another bit of butter in the pan and bake the rest of the pancakes!
  11. After all the pancakes are done, it’s time to serve and eat them!
  12. The best way is to put sugar, syrup in the middle and roll them up! Enjoy!
