Nostalgia overwhelmed me as I read the reviews ahead. In my early days, pursuing what was to be my lifetime profession, I worked the "Morning Table" in the kitchen of the world famous Kadinsky Restaurant in the "Steinenberger Kurhaus Hotel" in The Hague and one of my tasks was to gather the discarded vanilla pods from the Pastry Chef and then add them to a sugar bin, labelled "For the Babies". The babies of course was the name given to the pancake, made very much like the one we are reviewing here. So I have now made this recipe, with the only addition being two tablespoons of vanilla sugar from my own home bin. I made a couple of heat and position adjustments but did not alter the body of the recipe. Turned out great. At The Kandisky, if memory serves me, the Babies were served with a sweet Dutch Chocolate and fresh fruit (usually rasberry) topping, and being Holland and breakfast, it was often presented along with coddled eggs. The hotel's Silver Tray tradition. Good recipe.Tip: After scraping seeds from Vanilla Bean for custards etc, keep the pod(s) in an airtight jar with granulated sugar, for many uses and flavours.
