Chef’s tips

  • You can vary the pancake batter in different ways.
  • Try different flours (whole wheat, buckwheat, spelled, or semi-coarse wheat).
  • Instead of milk, you can use kefir or vegetable milks (coconut, rice, oat, soy, almond, hazelnut…)
  • You can add herbs (oregano, thyme, rosemary, parsley, or chives) or spices (paprika, pepper, or barbecue spices) to the dough for savory pancakes.
  • You can easily color the pancakes – you can get dark ones by adding cocoa, other colors can be achieved by adding food coloring.
  • Use oil for frying or brush the pan with melted butter
  • Make several pancakes at once and freeze what you don’t eat, they taste great even thawed and next time you just have to choose the filling.
