Pancakes are the epitome of Dutch childhood food. Dutch moms and dads are known to bake enormous stacks of them at children’s birthday parties to decorate with whipped cream, fruit, jam and other goodness. These skewers are a different take on the festive pancake, great as a dessert! The kids will love them!
Dutch Pancake Skewers Recipe
Tools: skewers, non-stick skillet pan
|assortment fruit cut into slices/diced|
- In a large bowl, combine the milk and the eggs. While whisking, slowly add the self-rising flour, sugar and salt to prevent clumps from forming. Leave to rest for about 5 minutes.
- Heat a frying pan with the butter on medium heat. When the butter starts sizzling, it’s ready to go! Pour a ladleful of batter into the pan and swirl it around to cover the bottom of the whole pan. Wait until all of the batter has cooked on top, then flip over and bake the other side. Once done, place pancake on plate and repeat until you’re out of batter.
- Cover each pancake in Dutch syrup (not too much) and roll them up tightly. Cut each pancake roll into even pieces. Skewer the pancake roll pieces and fruit, alternating between the two. Serve on a plate, or alternatively in half a melon.
