  1. I was wondering what to do for lunch. We just made a small batch (there are only two of us, and we’re not big eaters). I shall make them again. I may vary them with the addition of spinach or kale; or maybe cheese. Mmmm. Ooh. What about cheese and cumin?

    1. This is a basic recipe. Here in Latvia, we top the pancake with sour cream, cream cheese, bacon or salamon. I would love to hear from you when you try with kale or spinach.

Lately, I am planning to cook recipes of our blog world friends and link it back to their blog. Please do check out the cooking challenge category of my blog. Thanks.
