This is my mother’s recipe, just as she makes them, without exact amounts or grams, just ‘by eye’. As many mothers have a well-trained eye, she knows perfectly when the cake is at its point or when the mass of the crepes is perfect.
Here I leave the recipe as she makes them.
A spoonful of butter
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of baking soda
1 jet of anise
1 large stream of milk, not much because they can stick in the pan
Flour (200 gr more or less, depending on how many crespes we want to make)
Sugar, to taste, sprinkle it at the end over them.
In a bowl, mix the slightly melted butter, add the eggs, the pinch of salt and baking soda, milk, anise and water. Mix everything well until it is well integrated.
Finally add the flour and mix well, there must be a soft dough.
Spread the skillet with a napkin soaked in oil and with the help of a big spoon pour a little of the mixture, not so much, so they will come out thin. DOn´t stir it, just wait and turn it around carefully when you start to see some bubles in the middle of the crepe.
* my mother makes them with two pans at the same time.
Hope you enjoy them !!!
Yep! that´s right, only 3 ingredient pancakes, hard to believe but the results are incredible 🙂 plus is a healthy alternative to the traditional pancakes. I saw a similar recipe n the internet and I wanted to mak it right away, even I´ve made few changes to adapt it to my taste. No sugar, no flour…we are just going to need: bananas, eggs and cinnamon, ah! I also added some grated coconut (you can use your imagination).
Here I tell you the way that I made this delicious pancakes: 1 banana, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of gratred coconut (if desired)
Cut the banana into a small little bits to start mixing with the eggs and cinnamon. Mix it well with the blender or a food processor until everything is well blended and you get a smooth dough.
Tip: ‘What I have done differently, to get a fluffier pancakes, I first separated the egg white and whisked until I got a white foam, then, I added it to the banana and egg yolks to continue beating’
Heat the pan with a drizzle of olive oil and distribute it across the surface of the pan with the help of a paper towel. Pour a tablespoon of the mixture into the pan and flip the pancakes when they star to bubble through the center.
Serve with berries and syrup…eat!!!. Perfect for a weekend´s breakfast.
Enjoy the day!
