    German Speck und Dicken

    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?

    we have my grandmother's recipe for speck dicken... the recipe includes oats, molasses, bacon, summer sausage...
    it is my understanding that it is a traditional new years food, they would go door to door to eat with their neighbors...

    Traditional German New Years food; in Austria they used to call them "old year pancakes."

    Found an old style recipe here:
    http://shakespearessister.blogspot.c...en-dicken.html

    Recipe calls for bacon, hamburger, or sausage browned and broken up into small pieces, but it'd be great with a strip of bacon and a thin slice of summer sausage or salami in each. Notes downpage say you can sub plain rye flour for the rye graham flour specified...

    Pioneerwoman, whose recipes have a well-deserved reputation for being easy and reliable, has listed a more Americanized version, minus the meat. But I'm sure you could use her batter over meats, no problem.
