Traditional cherry pancakes from Zurich

Top Review by Sara 76

These were really tasty, and my kids really loved them. I had to use tinned cherries as fresh ones are not available right now. I did have trouble with cooking the pancakes though, as they just kept falling apart. After several failed attempts, I greased a couple of muffin pans, and added about 2TB of mixture to each cup. I baked them at 200C for about 15-20 minutes. I then let them stand for 5 minutes before turning them out onto the bench. They worked perfectly that way! I topped them with a little butter and a sprinkling of sugar. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Made for ZWT7-Switzerland. (Vicacious Violets)
