Check this classic recipe for thin pancakes.

I want to share with you this great and tested pancakes recipe that nowhere else I've ever seen, but I try it many times and I enjoy it every single time. I've seen many different recipes that generally resemble, but to make perfect pancakes should be dosed carefully their individual ingredients.

This recipe I found years ago in an old woman's magazine. Since then I use it and never let me down. The pancakes are always wonderful - neither too thin or too thick, but also incredibly delicious.


  • Prep Time : 25 minutes
  • Cook Time : 45 minutes
  • Yield : 24 pancakes



  1. Put the flour in a big bowl. Then make a little hole in the flour and pour into it the eggs broken like an omelette (or one by one). Add half of the milk slowly. Scramble for 2-3 minutes to obtain a smooth mixture.
  2. Second part of the instructions include adding salt, oil, melted butter (pre-melted on low heat), powdered sugar and vanilla. Add the second half of the milk. Put the lid and stands half an hour.
  3.  If you want to make very fine and fluffy pancakes, beat the egg whites in advance of snow. Pancakes can be made only with water - then it become very light, but not so tasty. If and only milk the pancakes getting thicker.
  4. And finally the butter and oil is added to not stick when frying on the pan. Fry over low heat (Be careful to not overcook) then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
    Bon Appetit!

    A moment ago I made pancakes. In the carousel, where I live, I see straight like this wasteful pleasure to spend two hours to do a real hot, fresh pancakes instead of those ones they sell ten in a plastic container.
    But they can never replace the pleasure of the smell of melted butter in a hot pan on watching the mixture spreads evenly from edge to edge, how come to the surface and tiny holes of them starts rising steam. Then carefully remove the peel, tossed pancake down and do what glorious movement, which throws it up and then catch the other side.
    Nothing can replace the memories of my childhood when my mother cooked up a huge bowl of pancake mix, and my brother and sat around and watched when it will be ready. One for him, one for me, filled with the most amazing cherry jam in the world. Ate them at the speed of light, faster than my mother managed to bake. Truly memorable…
