Panne Kucken

My husband's grandmother and her 3 sister's were Dutch.  When my husband was very little, they would all sit around and talk about the kids in Dutch.  He said they never knew what was being said but every now and then, they would hear their name.  Sounds unsettling to me.
The four sisters - Ella, Nina, Lola, and Ada made lots of great Dutch food for family dinners.  It was rich and it was fattening.  But it was also tasty.  One of our own family favorites is Panne Kucken.  It is kind of like a cross between a quiche and a pancake and a custard.  And now that you are thoroughly confused, here's the recipe.  Most people prefer it served with maple syrup.  But I like it with powdered sugar.  If you notice, it already has quite enough butter.  There is no need to add it to your toppings.  It is also good served with warm peaches!


3 eggs
¼ stick butter
¾ C whole wheat or spelt flour
¾ C milk
¾ t honey
1 ½ t vanilla

Melt ¼ stick butter in cast iron skillet.

Beat 3 eggs and add to flour, milk, honey, and vanilla.
Pour in hot skillet and butter.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 min.

Oh yummmmmmmy, sounds like a treat for this Saturday morning! I know I can find whole wheat flour easily, what is spelt flour?

Spelt Flour is similar to whole wheat. You can find it at a health food store.
I should have added that I bake this in a cast iron skillet.

this looks like something even I could do, lol! I've been wondering how to use spelt, I'm trying to get away from regular flour, and use the more healthy ones, so I will pick some up from my nearest health food store.
I don't have a cast iron pan, does that matter?

I've done it in a Pyrex baking dish before. It works just not quite as well as the cast iron - less crispy on the edges.
