German Pancake Soup

Recipe by teresas

This is my MIL's recipe that she has made for years. My whole family loves it. DH even loves putting jam and a sprinkle of sugar on the pancakes. He rolls them up and will eat them for breakfast. They are like a crepe. Some people like to just put the broth over the cut pancakes others like it with the veggies.

I prepared this delicious soup with beef and cooked it for 2 hours. After this I added the vegetables and added some fresh mushrooms I had to use as well. I prepared more pancakes (50 % more) as I wanted to have some for snack with sugar and cinnamon. I placed the soup on the table and everybody could add as much pancakes as they wanted. Everything had been enjoyed very much and we did not have leftovers at all. The beef had been served aside (I love it simply with olive oil, salt and pepper).Thanks a lot for this warming and tasty soup.
