Finally. A Pancake Recipe I Can Make.

I used to not be able to make pancakes. No matter how I tried, they flopped. I finally found success in Ukraine, when I used a recipe for crepes from a little paperback Betty Crocker cookbook that was given to me by one of the single guys on our team.

We ate crepes instead of pancakes for a couple of years, and then I found this recipe for Thin Pancakes. It's easy, makes large batches without problems, and the family loves them. When our church plant met on Saturday nights, part of our Sunday morning tradition was having these pancakes.

With recipes, the ingredients and amounts are not copyright protected, but the instructions and tips are. So, please visit this link for the well-written hints on how to make fabulous thin pancakes. However, for my own easy reference, I'm posting the ingredients here, in the proportions we usually use:

Serves 6, plus leftovers

Flour, 6 cups
Sugar, 6 tablespoons
Baking powder, 6 teaspoons
Salt to taste
Butter, 6 ounces, melted
Eggs, 6
Milk, 6 cups

Oooo, I'm going to try those! I never have luck with pancakes either.

I highly recommend it, Jo. It's easy. If these give you trouble, though, I recommend trying a crepe recipe. The higher egg content in crepes help them flip easier (and of course, a higher protein content make them more filling.)

I know there are more heathful pancake recipes out there, but this one is still our favorite. *grin*

Thanks for the recipe. These were really good, my family enjoyed them.
