The world's classic with a twist - Nutty Pancakes with Glazed Fruity Relish.
The tradition of the Nutty Pancakes comes from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Even before that in the Kingdom of Géza's (1141–1162) the dessert was so popular that it had been served during special occasions like weddings, for instance.
There are many variations of the fillings and toppings. My personal tip is Feta Cheese and homemade marmalade. So yummy.
Nutty Pancakes with Glazed Fruity Relish are indeed very special. The richness of the nutty filling is beautifully underlying the freshness of the fruits. I like to serve it with any kind of fruits, especially oranges. Jó étvágyat!
Pancakes are suitable for kids from the age of 2, because of a possible egg white intolerance. Preferably offer them with fresh fruits or homemade marmalades.
