The beginnings

Jan was a farmer who sold some dairy products to shops and stores in the neighborhood.  At some point, about 20 years ago, he decided to add fresh pancakes to his range of products, since these are made of base ingredients like milk, eggs and flour. And of course because he loved pancakes himself! His reference has always been to bake pancakes as close as possible to his mum’s. Therefore he initially baked the pancakes in the way you would do at home, in ordinary frying pans. He created a setting in the attic of his farm with quite a number of gas cookers, with a team of people baking and flipping pancakes. But pretty soon he faced a challenge, because his pancakes became very popular and they hardly could keep pace with demand.

Then magic happened. Jan woke up at a particular morning after a short and restless night and took a shower to wake and fresh up. Standing under the shower he then got a vision. He kind of day dreamt that instead of water there was batter coming out of the shower head, spilling batter all over him. Looking at the shower head he got this idea of using the shower head to spray batter in frying pans in a controlled way, using just enough batter to bake a pancake that was not too thick and not too thin. In this way the baking was a lot easier and therefore more pancakes could be baked. This whole idea is still a key element of the baking process in our state of the art bakery. We spray batter in exactly the right shape and form on a moving baking plate. Now we make millions of pancakes, but the ambition still is to get as close to Jan’s mum’s home made pancakes as possible and have the last pancake tasting the same as the first one each and every day. And obviously the same applies to our typically Dutch diddy pancakes.
