½ c. warm water
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. melted butter
1 ¼ c. flour
1 c. milk
Toppings: powdered sugar, butter, jam, syrup, or fruit topping
Butter a sauté pan or griddle. Beat eggs, water, and vanilla. Beat in sugar; then butter, flour, and milk, beating after each addition. Heat pan to medium; then pour batter by scoopfuls onto griddle (or single scoop for sauté or crepe pan). Turn quickly and do not overcook. Stack the crepe-like pancakes and keep in warm place until serving. Serve, buttered and rolled with toppings like a crepe--or serve flat and sprinkled with powdered sugar, allowing individual choice of toppings.
From whence it came: You know how sometimes you get those "junk" emails and they are just so annoying? Well, this terrific recipe came in one of those so called "junk" emails, but let me tell ya, this recipe is NOT JUNK!
Why it's blogable: These pancakes are really more like crepes, very flat, and VERY delicious! The married daughter is not the biggest fan of pancakes, but she really likes these flat pannies! That's what we call them, flat pannies. The Spy Who Loves Me and the teen son are also crazy about these, but I'm sad to admit that the teen daughter doesn't love them as much as the rest of us. What does she know anyway? There is not a single healthy thing about these pancakes, unless you count emotional health, because you will feel so happy after you make these.
What to do with 'em: We just like to put powdered sugar on them, roll them up and then drizzle maple syrup over them. Sometimes we put homemade strawberry freezer jam on them and that's yum-e, too! They are also great with fresh berries and whipping cream. I know some people like to put Nutella on them, but I just don't get Nutella. I am crazy about chocolate, but I draw the line at Nutella. If you like it, give it a try.
Hope you enjoy stirring it up!
