Then came the question: so, what are Fritatten? I looked at her wondering what to say now… although we were both speaking in German I knew she will not understand what would come next.
In loss of words I still said: they’re made from Palatschinken.
Of course I get that look back, that I’ve seen on many occasions in my life: what is this woman up to?
A short discussion on ingredients, mode of cooking, etc. brings us to the conclusion: Austrian Fritatten are called Eierkuchen in Germany and now we call them Austrian crepes or Austrian Pancakes in English.
