A Dutch Pancake for International Pancake Day

I love pancakes, it’s my Sunday treat and birthday breakfast special, last week was International Pancake Day!! Happiness is, so I celebrated with a pancake that I think is the yummiest by far; The Dutch Pancake.

I love this dish because its super quick , you need a blender and cast iron pan

You can watch me whipping up this recipe on my you tube channel, Claire Allen , I just launched my cooking series The Foodie In Love. Let me know what think and what you want to see me make!!!
