  • 2 tbsp. tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 50 g of melted butter

Recipe steps

  • Melt the butter in the microwave and heat the milk slightly, which should be barely lukewarm (this avoids lumps)
  • Combine the sifted flour, sugar, salt in a large bowl. You can replace 50 g of flour with cornstarch for more lightness
  • Add the eggs, the melted butter, then gradually the milk, beating well with a whisk to avoid the formation of lumps
  • Add beer or rum, or orange blossom water, vanilla and let stand 30 minutes before cooking
  • Heat a knob of butter in the pan and lay out a ladle of dough
  • Cook your pancakes on each side, that they are well browned
  • As you go, set aside on a plate, covering with a sheet of aluminum foil to keep them warm and soft. You should get between 15 and 20 pancakes with an 8-inch diameter pan.
