This German pancake recipe was sent in by Lori Neff, one of our Facebook fans! Her name for them is Flinsen. For me, a very unusual name. When I asked hubby if he had ever heard that before, he right away said, "Of course. That's potato pancakes." Hmmm ... so it definitely would appear that there are so many different names for similar foods in Germany. However, what is obvious is that these look so wunderbar and Lori served them up in style!
Lori said that these are actually gefüllte Flinsen, meaning filled crepes. And the filling Lori makes, YUMMY!!! She also suggests to use your own crepe batter if you wish and then use her filling.
The above recipe from Lori is one that's a perfect dessert treat, especially when company drops by unexpectedly. It looks so pretty and isn't that hard to make.
Pancakes in German are Pfannkuchen ... the literal translation is 'pan cake'. Simple, easy translation.
However, things are always that simple and that easy.
So, you'll need to be careful when you order in a restaurant. Make sure you know what part of Germany you are in or you'll get something you weren't expecting. However, you can expect it to taste WUNDERBAR!
