Pancakes (pannekoeken) are a Dutch tradition. There are pancake houses all over the Netherlands. As a kid I loved to go to the pancake house. Typically they make the pancakes very large and serve them for any meal. The pancake is generally served with powdered sugar or heavy Dutch syrup (stroop), and the menu typically offers quite a variety including ham and pineapple, ham and cheese, apple and raisins, assorted fruit, mushrooms, or my favorite - bacon and apple.
