Pannekoek (or crepes)

What do you call it? Pannekoek, crepes, pannenkoek, or whatever you wish to call them, are super delicious and a favorite in many a household. We love it and we also have this tradition that when a baby gets his/her first tooth, to bake pannekoek, but have you ever thought or wondered about this tradition.

I do not need any excuses to bake some fresh pancakes, but bake why pancakes when a baby has its first tooth? After some searching the web, I could not find anything regarding the origin of this story or any reason why people do it. Could it be because a pannekoek is soft and easy for a baby to ‘chew’ and munch on with only gums and also not to choke on? What do you think? Do you have any other explanation? Please share with us in the comments.

The Giant Boston Cream Cake

A Boston cream cake is a cake with a cream filling. The dessert acquired its name when cakes and pies were cooked in the same pans, and the words were used interchangeably. In the later part of the 19th century, this type of cake was variously called a “cream pie”, a “chocolate cream pie”, or a “custard cake”.
