Spek Pannekoeken Recipe (revised version)

(recipe originally on my Dutchish Deirdre blog, dated 6/14/12

I adjusted it to add whole wheat flour, and then not have it be unbearably dry :)

Spek Pannekoeken (pawn uh kooh kuh)

1 lb bacon, cut into small pieces
2 cups all purpose white flour (approximately 250g)
1 cup whole wheat flour (approximately 150g)
4 1/2 t baking powder
1 1/2 t salt
4 cups milk (I use 2%)
3 eggs
6 T butter (salted), melted

Fry bacon in pan until lightly browned but not too crisp.  Empty into small bowl (with grease)
In large bowl, sift together dry ingredients.
Add 3 cups milk and 3 eggs, stir until smooth.
Add 1 cup milk and melted butter, stir until even.  batter will be quite thin

Heat non-stick frying pan.  Scatter a spoonful of bacon pieces and some bacon grease into skillet.
Add small amount of batter and swirl around pan to reach to edges
Cook until top stops looking shiny, flip and cook briefly on the other side.  Pannekoeken should be light brown (darker than breakfast pancakes).
Remove to hot plate and cover with damp paper towel or let people eat as they are ready!

Serve with stroop drizzled over top.  You can roll up and cut into slices or just cut into bite-size pieces.

Makes about 15 plate sized pancakes.  Can also be made without bacon, or with thinly sliced cheese, apple, or banana folded inside

Stroop (syrup served with pancakes in Holland is different than what is sold here)

1/2 cup dark corn syrup
3 T dark brown sugar
1 T molasses
1 T water

Put all in a pyrex and heat in microwave for a minute to dissolve sugar.  Stir thoroughly.  It will become quite thick and sticky once cooled.  Once it has cooled somewhat, it can be put into a squirt bottle for easier dispensing.
