This is a yummy little variation from your normal pancake. I have no idea where this recipe came from, probably a magazine...I know I've had it over 25yrs...
If you make the thinner batter (less flour and a T or 2 more of milk) you can fry these into crispy little wafer cakes...My daycare kids prefer the more cake like version with syrup, so thats usually what I do...but for just family, I do them crispier. I have even made them into breakfast sandwiches by making them the crispier way, with egg and bacon! YUM
