Tired of French toast, pancakes and crepes? Try a twist that can be eaten plated or hand held. It’s like a pancake and a crepe got married and had kids.

  • Heat pan to medium-high. (Add some oil unless using non-stick)
  • Pour about 1/4 cup for each pancake.
  • Cook until bubbles form on the pancake and the edges begin to firm. Flip and cook until other side browns, about 2 minutes. The pancakes become golden brown and get a little cratered when cooked.

Serving Suggestions
Serve like traditional pancakes or get creative. These make great hand-held breakfast “tacos”: use desired filling(s) and eat.
