I'm calling these "European" Pancakes as opposed to the ones i have come to know as American Pancakes, because mine are thin and about 8" in diameter, instead of small, thick and fluffy.
They are known all over Europe, the French call them Crepe, the Dutch Pannenkoeken and the Austrians and Czech Palatschinken.
They can be sweet or hearty - i add apple slices for my favourites.
This has no eggs or mayo so is great for picnics and cookouts since it doesn't have to be refrigerated. We make it the day before to really meld the flavor. Great-Grandfather Bornkessel, a waiter, brought this recipe with him when he left Germany, worked in Switzerland then came to USA. Super high in potassium if you are restricted be careful.Submitted by DAKOTATURTLE
(Recipe reconstructed and adapted from Hildegard's circa 1157 treatise Physica: Liber Simplicis Medicinæ ) These biscuits were first made over 900 years ago by the Christian saint, Hildegard of Bingen. She said that these spice biscuits should be taken t regular intervals to increase joy and positivity! I like to substitute half of the plain flour with spelt flour, and use all organic ingredients.
This Cake was made without any butter. I used none fat sour cream as a substitute. The plums can be replaced with any of your favorite fruits such as peaches, apples, cherries and prunes. Try this with a spoon full of none dairy whipping cream and you will be in heaven.
Add a LITTLE extra flavor to your veggies by pan frying up some turkey bacon while you steam your veggies until they are ALMOST DONE. Then add them to the pan with bacon and stir. The flavor of the bacon permeates the veggies. This IS tastier with real bacon as the flavor is stronger, but healthier with the turkey bacon.Submitted by NRGMAMA
My husband ate something similar on a trip to Munich. He searched the internet until he found a recipe that sounded like what he ate. After a few tries and a few alterations, this is what we came up with. Not a low fat meal, but hearty and satifying. Served with mashed potatoes it is a real winner. To accomdate the high fat, just plan out your meals for that day to give balance.Submitted by MOMMYBEARTO3
