Fry the pancake on both sides until it is golden-brown coloured. Keep the pancakes warm in the oven.
Spread a tablespoon apricot jam on each pancake and roll it up. Sprinkle every pancake with a teaspoon confectioner’s sugar or some cinnamon.

If you want thinner pancakes use a little more milk or water
This is not a very regional recipe, but if you want to make a Swabian pancake soup you need this recipe as a basic, but without apricot jam and confectioner’s sugar.

This is a recipe you can find all over the world in very much variations.
