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


  1. Combine flour, egg, milk and salt (if using) in large measuring cup or bowl.
  2. To save on dishes I use the same measuring cup that I use to measure the milk.
  3. Let mixture sit for 30 minutes or longer.
  4. Heat skillet over med high heat and Melt 1 TB butter or margarine.
  5. Pour in 2-3 TB of pancake mixture in hot skillet for each pancake (pancakes should be small and thin).
  6. Cook until small bubbles form, turn and cook other side.
  7. These cook very quickly.
  8. Serve with butter and maple syrup.

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!

these had a nice flavour to them but i think i'll try to swirl them around to make them thinner next time.

Made as directed. Very simple and easy to make. Had a hard time waiting the 30 minutes. Made for ZWT9 and "The Apron String Travelers"
