Tuesday - Happy pannenkoek day!

Today it's Pancake Day and since we are in Holland we should celebrate with the local speciality: pannenkoeken!

The Dutch pannenkoek differs from French crepes or British pancakes in the sense that in the savoury versions the extras such as bacon, leek, mushrooms, etc. are "embedded" into the egg batter, making it more similar to a frittata than to an American pancake for instance.

Nevertheless, there are several delicious combination and today we have a good excuse to try some!

My favourite pannenkoekenboerderij (literally, "pancakes farm") is the Theehuis Rhijnauwen  nearby Utrecht, in the pretty woodscape of Amelisweerd.
