Thin pancakes (or crepes as they are known as well) filled with jam, sugar or chocolate. Easy and delicious, need I say more?

This batter makes soft and thin pancakes and the added sugar isn’t too much to make them unhealthy or super sweet. It’s about half a teaspoon per pancake, so that really isn’t too bad. It’s also a good way to increase kids’ protein intake as the egg and milk “hides” well in a pancake batter.

Make the best thin pancakes every time with this easy recipe.

If you have the time (or have planned it correctly and made the batter in advance), place the batter in the fridge for 30min before making the pancakes. This will ensure the same consistency for all of them as the flour gets incorporated properly. If not, go ahead and make the batter and fry them off straight away. I have never had any complaints from the kids either way.

The frying is a bit time consuming if you are working with one pan as you can only fry one pancake at a time. If you want to make a quick pancake snack for the kids, try my banana pancakes. They are small and thicker, so you can fry them off quickly as about 10 fit on the pan at the same time.

These thin pancakes are best when eaten straight away but if you have any remaining, keep them in a bag, cling film or tupperware in the fridge for max 3 days. Reheat on the pan or in the microwave for 30sec-1 minute. You can freeze them too if needed -freeze with a piece of cling film or butter paper between the layers as they will stick together otherwise and break when peeled apart. Defrost at room temperature for an hour or in the microwave on defrost setting for 2 min.

Enjoy the pancakes with your favourite spread; jam, honey, peanut butter or fruits 🙂

Yield: 10-12 pancakes measuring about 20cm

Add about 75ml of pancake batter to your hot pan. Swirl around fast. Cook the pancake on medium-high heat for a few minutes. The first pancake sometimes break easily. This happens quite often -so please don’t worry. The next one will be smoother and better. NOTE no extra oil or butter is needed for each pancake.

Step 7

When the pancake starts to brown around the edges like this, turn it over and fry on the other side too. Fry for a few minutes and add it to your pile. Continue with step 6-7 again with the remaining batter.
