Ham and Onion Pancakes from Amsterdam

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by Mamas Kitchen Hope

Very good savory pancakes. We added the mushrooms to half the batch and found we preferred them without, and I LOVE shrooms. DH ate his with syrup and I ate mine with plain yogurt. These are very thick and not at all like Pannekoeken- Dutch pancakes. They were nice all the same. Dutch pancakes are very thin and light, these are light but very thick and rise very nicely. We enjoyed them a lot. Thanks for a great recipe!
