I come from a mixed mesh heritage like many people I know! Recently my uncle sent me a family tree from my mom’s side of the family!  It was really cool to see all the different places my family has come from, and to see the family names and some well-known people in my family tree 🙂  I learned that a lot of my family from many generations back, lived in France and Belgium. It is really neat to see all the people who left a legacy in my family tree!

Since I am mostly German, I decided to make a very common German food.   Pfannkuchen!  It is basically like a crepe and can be used as more of a meal or a dessert depending on what you stuff it with 🙂  I did tweak the recipe so it was grain/dairy free.

Ingredients
3 eggs
1 cup flour (I used almond flour)
1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1/2 tsp vanilla
Smidgen of salt

I added cinnamon also even though it is not in the original recipe.

Directions
1. Wisk all the ingredients together in a bowl

2. Pour 1/3 cup on a hot griddle, spread out thin, sprinkle with cinnamon if desiredIMG_1080
3. Cook to lightly brown and turn over

4. Serve with your choice of filing (jam, berries, powdered sugar, cream cheese, meat, etc). I used strawberries!

Side note: I ended up using about 1 1/4 c milk to make the batter less thick.

Take a look at all the amazing ladies sites and check out their recipes!

 

What is your family heritage? Any recipes that you want to share?

    Wow it’s so cool that you’re related to Abraham Lincoln! My sister’s husband is obsessed with him lol he even got a tattoo of his face on his arm (he’s an odd ball 🙂 ) The recipe looks great!! I’m not familiar with a lot of German food, but I’d love to try it!
