Nothing better on a chilly weekend morning than what my family grew up calling Hungarian Pancakes. You need a medium sized bowl and about a 12" coated frying pan.
2 cp flour
2 TB sugar
2 cp milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
My Mom used buttermilk, I do not. They turn out just as good. Mix all ingredients with wire wisk until most of the lumps are gone. Place a dollup of Crisco in the bottom of the frying pan and heat up until it is melted.
I drop a level ladleful of mix into bottom of pan and swirl to make pancake extrememly thin (these are just like crepes but a little sweeter). Normally, the first one always gets ruined. The first side should cook until all the liquid disappears, then flip. It should be nice and golden brown but not crispy. It should be a little on the doughy side.
Our family uses all different sorts of toppers. I use butter and brown sugar. One of my kids uses powdered sugar and syrup. My Dad used peanut butter and jelly. My hubby uses butter and syrup. It's all in what you like. I'll bet a chocolate chip or coconut cake would be amazing. For a real treat, I will buy a couple of flavored syrups (raspberry and blueberry are a real hit). Give these nifty cakes a try the next time you want a real comforting breakfast (or breakfast for dinner)!
