These are truly world famous. I have made them for guests from England and the Netherlands as well as from Nova Scotia. I remember the first time I ever made them. I was a fairly newly wed when my husband asked me for pancakes. I very sweetly replied, " I can't make pancakes, I don't have any pancake mix." To which my husband answered, "Don't you have a cook book?" Thus begun my obsession of cooking things from scratch. ( I was 14 when I learned you could make a cake from scratch).
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk (I prefer buttermilk)
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat griddle.
- Beat eggs and milk together.
- Add dry ingredients and beat well.
- Pour on griddle.
- Cook until bubbles appear and flip over.
These are wonderful pancakes. Try 3/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup Cream of Wheat for a wonderful variation.
These disappeared pretty quickly. They're light, puffy, eggy, thin and more than a little crepe-like. They aren't as delicate as I normally expect crepes to be, which can be a good thing.
