Basic European Pancakes Recipe

European Pancakes Recipe

This is the basic recipe for the European pancakes.

I call them European simply because that’s how pancakes are generally made in Europe. A little different from the American ones. The French call them Crepe, the Dutch Pannenkoeken and the Austrians and Czech Palatschinken.

Preparing The Pancakes Composition

I used this blender to prepare the composition faster. Put the eggs and the sugar in the blender and mix them together. Meanwhile in another container add the melted butter and the vanilla sugar to the milk. Add the milk composition over the eggs composition in the blender and mix them well together. The final step will be to add the white flour in the blender as well, and mix them together. When the composition it’s well mixed, put it in a container and keep it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Making The Pancakes

Heat up really well the pancakes pan. Add a little oil and spread it well all over the pan. Check the pancakes composition, and if it’s too thick add a little water. Place a little of the composition as shown in the video tutorial, and spread it quickly all over the pan. When the pancake it’s cooked well on one side, turn it on the other side. When finished place it on a plate and repeat the steps until your composition it’s finished.

Filling The Pancakes

There are a lot of choices here depending on your taste. You can fill them up with melted or liquid chocolate, fruit jam, liquid chocolate mixed with walnuts, whipped cream…. and the list can go on. Simply spread your choice all over the pancake then roll it around. Place it on a plate and carry on with the rest of them. You can serve them as they are. Bon appetit !
