Austrian Bread Pancakes

Important Note About This Recipe:

These pancakes may seem difficult to flip. They're very tender in the middle. If you're finding them impossible to flip on the first batch, mix another Tablespoon of flour into the batter before you make the second batch.

An unusual pancake recipe that uses soaked bread slices as a base for the batter. The addition of currants (or raisins) and almonds makes them hearty and flavorful. They taste like bread pudding!
