French Pancakes

(4 servings)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs - beaten
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons butter - melted
Mix gradually the eggs, flour and sugar. Add the milk and melted butter slowly. The mixture will be quite thin. Mix and beat well.

Drop 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons amounts of the mixture at a time in well greased (buttered preferably) frying pan, spreading the mixture by a turning movement in the frying pan until it starts to thicken. The pancake must be thin and cooked on both sides.

Serve with powdered sugar.

The French word for pancake is crepe (KRAYP; KREHP). For more on crepes, check out the crepes section of this website.
