PANCAKE OF THE MONTH | This July, we would like to show you what an ‘old fashioned’ Dutch pancake looks like. This delicious Dutch pancake is a real sweet treat. This special pancake has banana inside, with traditional eggnog and a dash of whipped cream on top. With this summer limited edition, we are sure that all of your your sweet pancake dreams will come true! Every month, we serve a different worldly pancake from any country around the world. We have chosen an all-time favorite from The Netherlands in July, just because we love our country so much!
Many countries have their own specialty pancake. The Dutchies for example, are known for their traditional Dutch pancakes with bacon and apple. Our pancakes are just a little bit thicker than a crêpe and we believe they are fabulous/the best! The French are famous for their banquettes and French cheeses, but also for their delicate crêpes. This French, super thin pancake, is often served with Nutella! And then we have the original American pancakes: a fluffy and thick stack of smaller pancakes. These are often served for breakfast and usually come with maple syrup and some fresh fruit. In Austria, they do things a little differently, serving a traditional Kaiserschmarren. They create one huge sweet pancake, cut it into little pieces and traditionally serve your portion with raisins and a plum compote. These are just a view examples from the many delicious pancakes around the world! Since there are so many to choose from, it just wouldn’t be fair if we didn’t share it with our pancakes lovers.
Old fashioned Dutch treat
This month, we have chosen a traditional old fashioned pancake, with banana, eggnog and whipped cream on top.
Did you know that eggnog was founded back in 1852, in ‘s Hertogenbosch? The founder of this liqueur, J.G. Cooymans, was simply trying out different combinations with egg yolk and brandy. His little experiment lead to the famous Dutch liqueur ‘advocaat’. Advocaat, ‘eggnog’ in English, is usually served in a small port glass and topped off with whipped cream. You will find the delicious yellow colored treat along with your black coffee, with a slice of cake or even with some ice cream!
In addition to our pancake of the month, we would also like to remind you of the Dutch Coffee at two of our locations! At PANCAKES Amsterdam Westermarkt and PANCAKES Amsterdam Aan ‘t IJ, you can always enjoy a delicious cup of Dutch coffee: black coffee, with a little port glass of eggnog with whipped cream. Oh, and don’t forget about the stroopwafel - YUMMY!
Our old fashioned pancake is available at all of our PANCAKES Amsterdam locations in the month of July. We hope to see you soon!
