These sweet crepe-like pancakes get rolled up into mini jelly roll shapes and are a real hit with children. I serve these often to overnight guests - especially during holiday gatherings. You may use whatever jelly you prefer, we like raspberry or blackberry with seeds the best. The cook time is an approximation of how long I personally take to cook all of the batter - it only takes a few minutes for each crepe.
- 1 cup granulated sugar or 1 cup caster sugar
- 4 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- nonstick cooking spray
- butter or margarine, to taste
- raspberry jelly, to taste
Directions See How It's Made
- Whisk together well the sugar, eggs, salt, milk, and flour in a large bowl until there are almost no lumps.
- Heat a medium-sized nonstick skillet or a crepe pan (sprayed first with nonstick spray) to medium-low.
- Pour a THIN layer of batter into the skillet, about 1/4 cup or so- it should be just enough batter to coat the bottom of your pan.
- Swirl the pan to coat pan evenly with the batter.
- Carefully but quickly flip the pancake as soon it looks like it has started to very lightly brown and has begun to bubble.
- Once flipped, the second side only takes a few more seconds to cook- remove quickly to a plate.
- Immediately spread pancake with a small amount of butter and about 1/2 tsp of jelly or to taste (do not overfill with either or it will get soggy and too sweet).
- Roll up into a tube, jelly-roll style and serve.
- Repeat with remaining batter.
- Note: If possible, assign a helper to spread the butter& jam onto the cooked pancakes as they come out of the pan.
- You may need to re-whisk the batter between each pancake as it may settle.
- Also, I sometimes need to add a fresh spray of nonstick spray to the pan between pancakes.
