READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Babs7

This recipe was given to me at my bridal shower by family friends of my fiance. These pancakes are much thinner than American pancakes, almost like crepes. These pancakes are light and delicious and best of all, easy to make! Cook time includes an hour of refrigeration.

I have been using this recipe for quite some time now, and I really enjoy it. Its very easy to follow and the pancakes are not only fool proof, but tastier than the ones from other recipes I've tried.
