“these are like little crepes - and kids love their delicate texture! My 25 year old daughter still makes these - she called them "special pancakes" when she was little - heating the milk and melting the butter makes All The Difference in how tender this dough is!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat together milk and butter in a saucepan on medium low heat until butter is melted.
  2. Remove from burner and let cool slightly.
  3. Add 2 eggs.
  4. Blend dry ingredients and add.
  5. Spoon out into melted butter in a hot skillet or griddle.
  6. Turn very quickly - AS SOON AS bubbles form on top; these should be only lightly brown.
  7. the first 2 or 3 usually don't come out the best -.
  8. serve with real maple syrup or maple sugar - or with just plain sugar.
  9. you can substitute 1/4 tsp of lemon juice if you don't have baking powder on hand.
  10. you can pour 1/4 cup of batter into a non-stick pan, coat the bottom, and then flip quickly [remembering that it is better to undercook these for delicacy and maximum tenderness] - if your flip isn't perfect, these are Just As Good if they are crumpled up.
