Pannekoek - Dutch Pancake Recipe

My kids love my homemade pancake recipes, and I love to make pancakes from scratch. A lethal combination on any lazy Sunday morning.

So there I am in the kitchen, just about every Sunday, wind or shine. I whip out an easy pancake recipe, and pretty soon we're in business.

This recipe for pancakes is so quick and easy, and with only a small cleanup trail, that I often make it on our frequent camping trips.

Just imagine - homemade Dutch pancakes. Wow! What a way to start the day!

Just follow the easy 'how to make pancakes' instructions below for excellent results:
