Pancakes are made with a batter of flour, eggs, salt and milk. To be able to bake a pancake properly, well-heated iron pans must be used, which are greased with lard, butter or oil. The pancake is turned halfway through baking. The pancakes can be additionally processed with, among other things, apple, bacon, ham or cheese.

You can also first fry onions, peppers and mushrooms and then pour a thin layer of batter on top.

Mr Woltheus is committed to 'baking pancakes in the right way'. Baking seems simple, but without using the right technology, ingredients and tools, the quality quickly deteriorates.

Pancakes have been part of the daily meal for a long time. The remainder was often eaten with some butter, sugar or syrup for dessert. Today, the pancake is often eaten as a festive meal.
