So, today, when I began to crave pancakes for tea, I went ahead and made myself some. I am sure there are proper recipes with measurements for these types of pancakes. I just beat an egg, added some milk (didn't measure, maybe about a cup) and enough flour to make a batter that was thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, and a little salt for taste. That's the kind of recipe that used to drive my daughter crazy, whenever she asked me how to make something. Lol.
Then, I heated up a saute pan, added a pat of butter, poured a spoonful of batter and swirled it around. Cook one side, flip over and cook the other side:

Sprinkle a spoon of sugar and squeeze a few drops of lemon juice:

Then, roll it up:
The coconut and palm treacle filling is probably my favorite, but the sugar and lemon juice is easier and quicker. My daughter likes them best with Nutella and sliced bananas.
Everything I used to make the pancakes came from my fridge (egg, milk, butter), pantry (flour, salt, sugar), or the garden (lemon).
Do you make this type of pancakes? Do you call them pancakes or crepes? Have you eaten them with sugar and lemon juice? What is your favorite filling for them?
