1/5 Photos of Petoules (Pan-Fried Honey Pancake)
A recipe I found while searching for Greek recipes for ZWT, so untried by me, but something I know my family would enjoy. Here is a link to the site I found this recipe: http://www.orexata.com/2012/05/19/petules-pan-fried-honey-pancake/. Here is what is stated about the recipe: "May 21st marks a very special day on the Greek calendar where we celebrate the namedays of Kostadinos and Eleni. Greeks are big on namedays, and is a cause for birthday-like celebrations including sweets, gifts, and parties. Much the same as birthdays in other cultures, the honoree is the host, and has to offer a “kerasma” (kerasma signifies an offering to a guest to convey friendship and hospitality.) My mothers “kerasma” for her nameday is petules, which is a pan-fried pancake covered with honey and dusted with cinnamon and powdered sugar."
