Crepe-like pancakes served with jam or jelly and powdered sugar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix dry ingredients together.
  2. Slowly pour and mix the milk into the dry ingredients. It will be like heavy cream.
  3. Beat the eggs and add to the mixture.
  4. Heat a heavy pan on medium high. Spray with oil. Ladle in 1/3 cup of crepe mix into pan and swirl to coat entire bottom of pan. Let heat about 30 seconds. Turn down heat (or remove). Use a flexible metal spatula to lift edges and then the whole pancake. Flip it over and cook until lightly browned, about a minute.
  5. Turn out onto a plate. (*The first pancake is often a mess but after that they come out better).
  6. Spread about 1 tablespoon of a tart jam or jelly on the pancake. Shake powdered sugar over all. Roll up and add another shake of powdered sugar. Enjoy.
