The tradition and history of Beauvoorde pancakes

Making pancakes is something they really know how to do in Beauvoorde. Maggy Duquesne, Karen Pauwelyn's mother, started the tradition in 1970. At the time, she sold her pancakes by the kilo.

Making pancakes on television

The pancakes were so delicious that a television documentary crew paid a visit. Mother Maggy was so nervous that she failed to make a perfectly round pancake on camera.

But the Beauvoords Bakhuis name was certainly established. Customers came in droves. And they found out how tasty our product was.


The only real Beauvoorde pancakes and waffles

In the meanwhile, Karen frequented the pancake bakery. She was the only one that mother Maggy would trust with her pancakes. Other ambitious pancakes makers tried their hand, but to no avail. It is not by chance that Beauvoords Bakhuis pancakes and waffles are a recognised regional product from the Westhoek (Maritime Flanders).

Secret recipe

Happily for lovers of the most delicious pancakes, Beauvoords Bakhuis is still doing it, and better than ever. In 2005, mother Maggy passed her mixing spoon on to her daughter, Karen Pauwelyn. She continued to select only the highest quality ingredients and to make her products using the secret, traditional recipe.

Renowned at home and abroad

Beauvoords Bakhuis has developed into a hyper-modern business, which is renowned both in Belgium and abroad. Do you know that we now export pancakes to a number of different countries in Europe, and even the United States?
