4. FAQ Stuffed Pancakes

The most frequently asked questions about filled pancakes are summarized below:

Which flours are right for stuffed pancakes?

You can prepare traditional pancakes with wheat flour type 405 for filling.

Gluten-free flour is also suitable, for example Schär Mix for cakes and cookies.

You can also use buckwheat flour or spelt flour and adjust the binding of the pancake batter.

What diameter pancakes can you recommend for me to fill?

A small pancake pan with a diameter of 20- 24 cm I think is a good idea.

The baked and filled pancakes then fit well in a roaster.

Above recipe is calculated exactly for 4 pancakes, each piece 70 ml, baked out in a pan with a diameter of 24 cm.

Can you recommend a stuffing of minced meat and mushrooms?

Prepare a bechamel sauce.

You can fry mushrooms or other mushrooms, let them cool down and then add béchamel sauce.

You can use the mushroom sauce to fill the pancakes.

Fill the pancakes vegetarian or supplement sautéed ground pork or ground meat half and half.

Cover the pancakes with béchamel sauce before baking in the oven, optionally you can add cheese.

What fillings are good for sweet pancakes?

You can fill sweet pancakes with jam, with compote or with amarena cherries.

Chocolate cream or melted chocolate are equally good.

What quick filling would you recommend for savory pancakes?

You can fill the baked, cooled pancakes with cream cheese and herbs.

Add cooked ham, crispy bacon or graved salmon and smoked salmon to taste.

You can serve the savory, filled pancakes cut into rolls as pancake maki.

What is the difference between stuffed pancakes and stuffed pancakes?

Pancakes in Austria are called Palatschinken.

Palatschinken dough is prepared from 120 g flour, 4-5 eggs, 250 ml milk and a little salt.

Why is clarified butter your recommendation for frying pancakes?

The clarified butter or butter is heat resistant and does not burn.

At the same time, the butter flavor is preserved and the pancakes taste better than when fried with oil.

Nevertheless, you can also use refined vegetable oil such as sunflower oil or rapeseed oil to fry the pancakes.

An insider tip among cooks is nut butter; the browned butter creates an additional, nutty flavor.
