“This is my grandmother Hyganoush's recipe. Light and fluffy and delicious. Can be served with maple syrup or confectioners sugar or BOTH! Great breakfast! I should also add that batter can be mixed the night before and placed in refrigerator overnight to rise. Take out and leave at room temperature for 1/2 hour or so before frying. When we were kids we used to see all sorts of people and animals in the shapes.”
