This recipe makes for the perfect compromise between pancakes and crepes.

These pancakes are thicker than crepes but thinner than regular pancakes. This is an old family recipe inspired by my great grandmother.

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 16 minutes

Makes: 4 large pancakes

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp white granulated sugar

1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs

3 Tbsp melted butter + more for frying

2 cups milk

Directions

In a large bowl, sift dry ingredients together. Beat in remaining wet ingredients. The mixture may be a little lumpy.

Heat butter over medium heat in a large frying pan. Ladle the thin batter into the pan. Cook for one to two minutes or until bubbles appear, flip and repeat until fully cooked.
