- 250 mL/ 1 cup of milk
- 2 eggs
- Pinch of salt and pepper

- Mix the sifted flour with the milk, the eggs, salt and a pinch of sugar.

For the filling:
- For the filling, cook the roughly diced bacon in a teaspoon of olive oil for 2-3 minutes.
- Then add the diced onion and sauté until the onions are translucent.
- Next, sauté the cleaned and quartered mushrooms until slightly softened, season with salt and pepper.
- Add the tomato paste and cook for one minute, then add the cream and whisk to combine.
- Bring the sauce to a boil briefly and season to taste.
- Add chopped parsley as a garnish before serving.
- To serve, place pancakes on a plate and spread them halfway with 1/4 of the filling.
- Fold it in half or roll it.
Enjoy with white wine or cider, and a crisp salad with yogurt dressing. It’s a very easy and quick dish. Pfannkuchen are similar to pancakes and the french crêpes. It‘s really fun!
