Sweet Pancakes with Jelly

Sweet Pancakes with Jelly

This is a recipe from my Swiss grandfather. He had a huge vineyard at his house where he also kept bees (the honeycomb honey was fantastic). So grape jelly was always the jelly we used on these pancakes, along with plenty of real butter. His nickname was “Oleo” because he refused to eat margarine. Actually, these are crepes rather than pancakes, but I'm going with his original recipe title.



  1. These are thin pancakes. Cook as for crepes.
  2. Serve with butter and grape jelly.
