Recipe from my sister, Karen.

There once was a restaurant, The Pannekoeken Huis, in my hometown1. It specialized in Dutch souffles. (My favorite was the dessert apple kuchen.) Whenever one was made, the waiters would run through the restaurant to the table before the souffle fell.

Below is the basic recipe; it can be savory or sweet. You can add meat, cheese, spices, fruit, whatever to make it into a meal or a dessert. It is also easy to double or triple. Best of all, you only need to use one bowl.

Mix together extremely well:
1 C milk
1 C flour
1/2 tsp. salt
Then add:
2 eggs
1 Tsbp. melted butter2
1 C flour

Pour the mixture into a cast iron skillet or glass pie plate.
Bake at 450 degrees F for 20 minutes.
Then turn down to 350 degrees F for 7-10 minutes (until brown).
Take it out of the oven. Enjoy the oohs and aahs of your friends. Enjoy!

1It’s actually part of a chain of restaurants located in Minnesota. I have no idea how or why one opened in Bartlesville. I did visit one on my only trip to Minneapolis-St. Paul.

2 Melt the butter in the skillet in the oven, while it is preheating. Saves time & energy as well as greasing the pan!

  1. I remember that place, my sister worked there. A couple of years they were open on Christmas day so thats where we went for breakfast. Anyway, I just had a memory of it, went to google, and found this post.

  2. do you really have 2 cups of flour in this or is that a typo?? We make something very similar called “giant Pancake” and have 2 eggs, half cup milk, half cup flour. other Pannekuchen recipies call for similar ingredients…

  3. Crazy. I just walked out of the kitchen, where I was doing the advanced prep for tomorrow’s Pannekoek feast. I have… let’s call it a fusion recipe. But the one here is the canonical starting point.

    And then I saw this in my RSS feed.
