    Chef Suz in Bekond's Note:

    In Belgium when you are invited for a pancake breakfeast you are actually going to eat what Americans think of as crepes. They are usually only made for special occasions such as birthdays. From my very old recipe book called "Wonderfull Ways to Prepare Crepes and Pancakes".

      These were just ok. I grew up in Belgium and they didn't really remind me of Belgian pancakes. Also, it's misleading to call them crepes just because they are thinner than American pancakes. Crepes are French and are paper thin when done correctly. Dutch and Belgian pancakes are slightly thicker much like pancakes from the British Isles, but Benelux pancakes tend to use water in the batter. Also... BelGIUM is the country... things from there... such as said pancakes are BelGIAN! ;)
