Flensjes – Vol. 4, recipe 1

These are very thin pancakes. VERY thin. This month brings us Dutch cookery, among others, and so I took the opportunity to get in touch with my little bit of Dutch heritage. These are quite amazing – basically a thin skin of batter that bubbles all over (you can see the resulting lacy pattern) and you only have time to brown one side. They recommend sprinkling with sugar and rolling them up and eating with jam. Instead, I rolled then sprinkled some with powdered sugar. I also tried some with hazelnut chocolate spread (you know the brand!) and fresh bananas. Whipped cream would not have been amiss. Jam is also good. You could also serve these with some savory filling or topping. They are very much like crepes – and yet not exactly. Enjoy!IMAG0201
