#CookedInTranslation: Tower of sweet frittatine

Today we are back with Cooked in Translation! As you might know, cooked in translation is a monthly event where we interpret a traditional dish. This month Sophie from German Foodie choose Pfannekuchen which basically is the German version of pancakes. To participate link up your own Pfannekuchen or pancake and let your friends know!

What I did was frittatine, little frittate. In Italy, very thin frittate are sometimes used as crepes. Despite the fact that frittata is usually a savory dish, its flavor is actually quite neutral so that these thin frittate can be used a bit like crepes and stuffed with your favorite ingredients.

Of course, similar to crepes, you can layer fritattine with savory ingredients, but this time I  went for something a bit more unexpeted and made a dessert out of them . I topped the fritatine with yogurt and strawberry jam and got a pretty great and fresh dessert, perfect to round up a dinner.

On a separate note, my Chicken Sausages Giveaway is still open: remember to enter!

#CookedInTranslation: Tower of sweet frittatine

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 2 Servings

#CookedInTranslation: Tower of sweet frittatine


  • 2 eggs
  • honey flavored greek yogurt
  • strawberry jam
  • salt
  • pepper (optional)
  • olive oil


  1. Beat the eggs with salt and a pepper. I know it sounds weird, but strawberry jam is so sweet, that a bit of pepper can be a welcome contrast.
  2. Warm up a medium nonstick pan and coat it with oil. Wipe the excess oil out and pour a bit of the egg in the pan. Quickly swirl around to obtain a thin frittata.
  3. Cook for about 20 sec and flip over. After another 10-20 seconds take the frittata off the fire and onto a dish covered with paper towels to absorb the oil.
  4. Keep cooking the frittatas and pile them up on a plate.
  5. Using a round cutter (or a glass) cut out 10 frittata rounds.
  6. Assemble the tower by placing a fritatta round on the bottom, then 1 tsp jam, another frittata round, 1 tsp yogurt, another frittata, jam, fritata, yogurt, fritata and top with a dollop of yogurt and jam.
  7. You can decorate with mint leaves.

  2. Kat says:

    I have to try these, the combination of pepper in the frittatine and the sweetness from the jam sounds intriguing, plus pancakes are so laborious in comparison to these.

  3. Interesting! No flour, just eggs and yogurt! I’d love to try this one. Kids love jams and they find all kinds of excuses to get more jams. 🙂 This one looks like a nice sweet snack for the kids!
