The only thing that’s Dutch about this puffed pancake is that it’s so large and filling you can split it (and its cost!) with someone else. Though it’s nothing like its huge thin, flat brethren served up in Amsterdam, the name is meant to imply that this isn’t your traditional stack, but rather a singular sensation cooked in the oven—a function of necessity, given the limited real estate of Prune’s teeny kitchen that prohibits the use of several burners required for flipping conventional flapjacks.
Instead, expect a soft, airy cake that tastes pretty much like a fluffy Madeleine cookie with four pear slices baked in for subtle sweetness. It’s served with maple syrup and two slices of smoky Canadian bacon, both of which are, indeed, authentic. ($14)
