My husband's grandmother and great grandmother were of German decent.
I never had a chance to meet them but whenever Jode and I first got together his mom would cook
pancakes for us called German pancakes. I had never heard of them, let alone ever eaten them.
But as it turned out I liked them and now my kids really, really like them.
So whenever I go to make pancakes around our house it's usually these that make it to our table.
They are thin and kind of remind me more of a crepe-of-sorts.
Hubs says you are supposed to lay the pancake out flat_ fill with syrup_ then roll it up_ and enjoy.
Thought it'd be fun to share the recipe with you this morning beings my kiddos are home from school today for MLK Day. This is probably what they'll ask me to cook them for breakfast.
