DIRECTIONS

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the Sprite, salt, water, raki or brandy, and lemon juice on low speed.
  • Sift or whisk together the baking powder and flour then add slowly to the bowl, beating on high.
  • When all the flour has been added, continue to beat on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes until smooth.
  • Preheat 1/4 to 1/3 inch of olive oil in a heavy-bottomed frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, fry the pancakes using a rounded tablespoon of batter for each. Fry 2 to 3 minutes on each side until lightly golden, and drain well on absorbent paper towels. (Add more oil between batches if the level in the pan drops too low.
  • Serve with your choice of honey, petimezi, syrup, preserves, or other topping of your choice.).
