Frequently asked questions

Q. What is a Dutch pancake?

They’re rather like the pancakes that British families eat on Pancake Day. We make them from flour, fresh milk, eggs and vegetable oil. Dutch pancakes are usually the size of a dinner plate, thicker than a crêpe and thinner than an American pancake. They’re yummy with sweet and savoury toppings.

Q. What is the history of the pancake?

People were making pancakes way, way back in the Stone Age by mixing eggs, flour, milk, and cooking on a hot stone or shallow earthenware pot. The traditional Shrove Tuesday pancakes that we all know and love originated in Medieval times, when eggs needed to be used up before Lent. But as you’ve noticed, pancakes have become an increasingly popular and people are gobbling them up all year round.
