Danish version below.

Christmas Pancakes


  • 3 large eggs
  • 115g wheat flour
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground white pepper
  • 140ml milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 60g white chocolate chips
  • Butter for the pan


1. Separate the eggs, putting the whites into one bowl and the yolks into another.

2. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, white pepper and milk to the yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter.

3. Whisk the whites with the salt until they form stiff peaks. Fold into the batter.

4. Heat a non-stick pan with a little butter on to medium heat. Pour some of your batter into the pan, followed by approximately 10 white chocolate chips, and fry for a couple of minutes until it starts to look golden and firm. Loosen the pancake with a spatula and flip the pancake over. Continue frying until the bottom side is golden. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve immediately with cherry Kirsch sauce.

  • 70g granulated sugar

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla sugar
  • Pinch of salt


1. Stir together cherries, sugar, cold water, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, 12 to 15 minutes or until thickened.

2. Remove from heat, and stir in Kirsch, vanilla, and salt. Cool completely (about 1 hour).
