These delicious small pancakes are generally served as dessert, but can certainly be adapted to breakfast or brunch. Made without milk or eggs, they are slightly crunchy. The key to getting an authentic taste is to use black currants.

Make sure to keep the pancakes nice and small. If they're too large, they will burn on the outside before the inside is done.
