Thin and Lacy Pancakes

There are no leavening ingredients in these pancakes, so they stay super thin and flat, like a crepe.

Yield:
about 12 pancakes
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for brushing
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Butter and maple syrup or jam, for serving
Directions
  • Whisk the milk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla in a large bowl until combined. Add the flour, sugar and salt; whisk until the batter is smooth, with no lumps.

  • Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat; lightly brush with butter. Add 1/4 cup batter; swirl the skillet to coat the bottom with a thin layer of the batter. Cook until set on top and lightly browned around the edge, about 1 1/2 minutes. Gently lift and flip the pancake with a rubber spatula; cook until just browned on the other side, about 15 more seconds. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter (do not brush the skillet with more butter). Fold into quarters and serve with butter and syrup or jam.
