These thin pancakes have been a favorite in our house for many years.

Top Review by Hey Jude

These are really nice pancakes. I cooked them in two small frying pans, one to a pan, simultaneously and they do cook fast, as the recipe states. I rotated the pans a bit to swirl the batter, which made them thinner (and that's the way we like our pancakes). They were great with butter and syrup and I think I'll serve a fruit sauce (raspberry?)with them next time. Thanks Ellie! Great recipe!
