    My grandma who was of German heritage but lived all her life around Danish immigrants in Western Iowa made a breakfast dish similar to this one that the family pronounced “Datch”. We also made Ableskeiver but this was the go to when we were late for church. Have you heard another name for this recipe?

    Turned out great. Back home in ND where us German-Russians run rampant, we call them (do my best to translate lol) Iishtootles. Can be quickly made with a pancake mix, but what fun is that (also does not taste as good). Now for tweaks, a teaspoon of vanilla always gives desserts or in this case breakfast a good homemade taste. The pancakes are also easily scrambled in the pan with the spatula. Just my two cents. The pancakes themselves, I never had a real recipe. So thanks. At 39 this is a tradition thathasbeen passed down many generations. Now if I could just get my Grandpas red eye recipe, I would be happy.

    I was unsure how to cook these as I made a recent trip to Germany for the first time but only saw Kaiserschmarrn from a mix. So it was great to find this recipe! They cooked up beautifully and were just like I remembered. :) Thank you!

    These were really good. I reduced to half a recipe and topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream (from a can). Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    What a delicious lunch I just had, thanks to you Syd. Thanks for sharing this recipe. This quick and easy to make recipe is excellent. The pancakes are light, fluffy, tender and full of flavor. I garnished my pancake with fresh stewed strawberries and a little icing sugar.
