Inlaws used to make a pancake of so-called German origin, Speck und dicken, or "Bacon and Thickening"?? I think it used some Rye flour in the batter, along with anise flavoring. The batter was poured in the pan over one strip of bacon and a thin slice of hard salami. There must have been some sugar in the batter, as they scorched easily.
Any recipe ideas?
