Going Dutch

Growing up my mom was not necessarily a good cook.
We never went hungry but it was clear later on in my youth that she was neither adventurous or original.

This was all before the movement to make food differently, more gourmet with global cuisines mixed in.

My dad was a reasonable cook, he often would make the usual Dutch staples us kids liked.

One of them is “Pannekoeken”, a very simple recipe with only 3 ingredients.

Pannekoeken (Dutch Pancakes)
1-2 eggs
1 cup milk
1tsp salt
1 cup flour

Beat eggs, add milk and salt
Mix in flour until you get a good mixture, it should be thinner than American pancake batter
In non-stick skillet melt a dollop of butter and pour a thin layer of batter.
Cook both sides until golden

For toppings you can add anything sweet at the table.
I remember as a child how much I liked being able to dress up my Pannekoek myself.
