On this week’s edition of Real Life, Real passion I introduced you to Bridget Schwebach, Senior Executive Ambassador for Forever. Today she shares one of her family favorite recipes: Apple Pannekoeken.
Pannenkoeken is a traditional Dutch pancake. It is large and thin, falling somewhere between an American pancake and a French crepe. The pancake can be topped with savory or sweet toppings: fruits (especially apples), cheese, bacon, chocolate, sweet sauces, nuts…
Pancake houses are often crowded in the morning, however, the dish is more traditionally eaten by the Dutch for lunch or dinner.
Bridget’s version which is cooked in the oven instead of on a griddle, puffs up while baking and then deflates when removed. The cinnamon and brown sugar melts into the dish and is sure to please anyone with a sweet tooth.
Regardless of the time of day, this dish will make mouths happy.
