""This is my MIL's recipe that she has made for years. My whole family loves it. DH even loves putting jam and a sprinkle of sugar on the pancakes. He rolls them up and will eat them for breakfast. They are like a crepe. Some people like to just put the broth over the cut pancakes others like it with the veggies.""

I liked this soup. It was a nice simple vegetable soup, but without all the bad stuff from a can. The pancake was great in it. Just the right amount of sweetness. I want to make this often this winter. Thanks!
