Over here pancakes are much more a dessert thing. The best I have had involved a baked stack of pancakes with apple filling between each pancake.

Yes, in most of Europe pancakes would be seen as a dessert or snack, think crepe suzettes or a crepe from a creperie in the afternoon. Doughnuts too, would cause raised eye brows if eated for breakfast! But I'd happily eat either at anytime!

lulu is right... sweet pancakes are for dessert.. or maybe as lunch for the kids and some men ;)

But I prefer the version with sausages or ground meat... and some mushrooms with it.. ;o)

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
