On the 24th of March it will be the National Pancake Day in the Netherlands. On this day, elementary school students throughout the country will be baking pancakes for elderly in their neighbourhood. Schools can still sign up for this day! If you really want to surprise them these days, you should check out these special pancake ideas we collected! Also good inspiration for pancakes restaurants!

Pancake Puppies

American coffee shop and restaurant chain Denny’s has Pancake Puppies on their menu. The puppies are similar to donuts but are actually pancake bulbs mixed with blueberries. Vanilla ice cream and whipped cream complete the dish. Recipes for the so-called Pancake Puppies can be found easily throughout google.

Muffin Pancake

The pancakes can also be baked in small muffin tins as the video of tiphero shows. The pancake batter is poured into a muffin pan which results in small, bite-sized pancakes. You can also give a twist to it by adding chocolate to the batter.

Pancake in a cone

Nowadays, it seems that everything is served in the form of a cone. Pizza, cappuccino, we all have seen them pass by. Dominique Ansel came up with an example of a Nutella crepe in a cone. During the ‘International Pancake Day’ two years ago, the horn was sold in New York. You can make it yourself as well, the recipe can be found in the link!

Pancake burger

The pancake burger can be found all over the internet and is perfect to experiment with. The example in the article talks about pancake sliders, the little breakfast burgers of your dreams. Off course it is also possible to serve these pancake burgers during dinner. It’s easy to make, just replace the bread for thick pancakes and it’s done!

Breakfast nacho’s with pancakes

Nacho’s for breakfast served with small cutted pancakes. Sounds good! This breakfast dish also includes shredded cheese, black beans, bacon, avocado and sliced radishes. It wouldn’t surprise me if this dish is loved in countries in which they serve warm breakfast.
