Eierkuchen (Pfannkuchen)

Jump to: navigation, search

Eierkuchen or Pfannkuchen are large, and relatively thin pancakes, that constitute a traditional dish in Germany. There are many variations of this dish, depending on region and tradition. The basic ingredients include eggs, milk, flour and salt.

Eierkuchen can be salty or sweet. The sweet ones are usually filled with jam, marmalade or applesauce and covered with sugar or syrup. The salty variants contain cheese, ground meat or bacon and can be served with fried eggs or green salad.

In some regions the pancakes are first filled with stuffing, then wrapped; in others they are cut into small pieces and arranged in a heap.
