Recipe by Organic Olive
This recipe was handed down to me by my Great Nan, who made them for over 90 years. This recipe was one of the many brought over with her family from Germany many years ago. I have finally been able to successfully make this almost like hers, and look forward to making it for my children and grandchildren some day, just like she did.

These Pfannekuchens were incredible. I enjoyed this tasty treat so much. They had a great texture and the flavor was out of this world. Quick and easy to make with ingredients always found in the pantry. I'm so pleased that i found this recipe, I will be making this often. Made for Pac Spring Safari.
