Just so people know, the Dutch pancake being talked about here
appears in the Florilegium under Breadmaking in a post from 1999. It 
also appears
on the web at
I am not convinced that Oud-Hollands Kookboek is the end all on pancake 
recipes but I'll
see what else I can dig up this week. Peter Rose's work comes to mind as 
being more
accessible. Matters of Taste Food and Drink in Seventeenth-Century Dutch 
Art and Life
contains two paintings that deal directly with the topic:
 Jan Steen's Pancake Woman and Egbert van der Poel's A Pancake Woman.
They are also featured in Bloemaert's A Couple in the Kitchen Interior.
Rose produces 3 different versions of pancakes in the recipe book that 
goes along
with the exhibit catalog and notes the sources in the catalog.
Windmills in My Oven by Gaitri Pagrach-Chandra also has a chapter on 
pancakes with listed sources.
