Pancake ship

'Pancake ships´, floating pancake restaurants, can be found in various cities with canals all over the Netherlands. We eat our pancakes, known as pannenkoeken in Dutch, mostly at lunch and dinner. The ones served in a restaurant are quite large: 30 cm (12 inch) or so. Toppings and fillings can be sweet or savoury, like sliced apples, cheese, ham, pineapple, bacon, alone or a combination. Popular on top is sugar, or 'stroop': a thick suger beet-based syrup.


The photos show 't Pannekoekschip at the Willemskade in Leeuwarden. My personal favourite is a pancake with sliced apples and powdered sugar on top. How do you like your pancake?

    We do not have this way to eat pancace in everywhere. But when I eat it, then I want strawberry jam and whipped cream with it.

  7. "'t Pannekoekschip" = pancake ship. Maybe Dutch isn't as unfathomable as the English think! I'm a sugar and syrup man myself though the addition of apple sounds good.

  8. Het zijn altijd mooie grote schepen uit ongeveer dezelfde periode. Vraag me alleen af waar die combinatie van pannenkoeken en schepen vandaan komt. Pannenkoeken lijken me nou niet echt schipperskost. Maar alleen suiker is trouwens voor mij voldoende.
