These pannakoeken are made by Dutch Grandmas (Omas) everywhere! They are very thin and look more like crepes, however not sweet like crepes. You can eat them with savory fillings or sweet fillings, we like them with syrup best!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix dry ingredients together. Add oil and eggs to this mixture. Slowly add the milk to a very thin consistency. Whisk well til very few lumps remain.
  2. Fry about 1/2 cup of this mixture at a time in a quite hot frying pan sprayed with pam, you only need to grease the pan intermittantly after that. Spread thinly in the hot pan by tipping the pan in circular motion. The thinner the pancake the better:) Fry them til the top of the pancake appears dry then flip over until it is quite brown on the bottom.
  3. These take some practice but are worth the effort!

I was disappointed the first time I made these as this recipe calls for too many eggs and that's all we could taste. I reduced the number of eggs to one and the amount of milk to one and three quarter cups. It work out perfect, just like Oma's!

These were really nice. I like thin pancakes much more than thick. I used whole wheat flour instead of white and served them with fresh berries and applesauce. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
