“A cherished food memory from my childhood. I would stay at my cousin's house on the weekend and this is what her father would make for us in the morning. It is a rolled crepe-like pancake and topped with butter and syrup. As kids, we would unroll them and THEN slather them with butter, roll them back up and THEN pour the syrup. Any way that you eat them, they are wonderful. My dear cousin also mentioned to me that she tried it with flavored syrups like Boysenberry and how her father used to experiment with different flavored extracts. Coconut was one of her favorites.”

  3. When pan is hot, add 1 teaspoon oil and allow to heat up.
