You are correct in that the recipes are the same. I meant to get this posted
yesterday but after a session of physical therapy sitting at the
computer was the last thing I wanted to do.
So here is the recipe that Aldyth was seeking (and the one mentioned in
the Heiko Ebeling recipe that appears in the Florilegium and in various
places on the web.)
Van’t Veer, Annie. Oud-Hollands Kookboek. Utrecht: Uitgeverij Het
Spectrum, 1966, 1981.The recipe reads:
Om panckoecken te maken in de vastenen. Neemt fijn bloeme, die suldi
beslaen met gheste. Dan maeckt daer af deech. Dan salmen van dien selven
deeghe nemen een Cleyn clontken ende maken dat viercantych seer dunne,
emmers soe dunne alst Moghelyck es om maken tot dat cleyn gaetkens
worpt. Dans bacxse wel in raeptsmout. Sommyghe dye willen backen der
inne rosinen ende dye steken si hyer en daer eene ende cock clyen
stucxkens van appelen. Page 50
I googled the first line of this recipe then and it turns up as
126. Om panckoecken te maken inde vastenen
To make lenten pancakes
 Om panckoecken te maken inde vastenen Neemt  fijn bloeme die

* To make lenten pancakes. Take  fine flour which you shall beat
up with yeast. Then make  dough from it. Then, from the same dough,
one shall  take a small lump and make it square  [and] very
thin, in any case as thin as it is possible to  make, until small
holes appear. Then fry them well in  rape oil. Some, who wish to,
fry raisins therein  and they stick them one here and there and also
 small pieces of apple.*
Het eerste gedrukte Nederlandsche kookboek, Brussel, Thomas vander Noot
(+/-1510) This was "The First Printed Dutch Cookbook."
This project was included in the list of Dutch cookbooks that
I submitted yesterday am.
Hope this helps,

You then cite the recipe given by
