Perfect Thin Pancakes

If you like pancakes that are thicker than a crepe but thinner than the usual pancake then this is the recipe for you.  This super simple recipe takes just a minute to whip up and is super delicious.  They  are thin and buttery with crispy edges, totally irresistible.  Serve with warm maple syrup, powdered sugar or plain straight out of the skillet.  I promise you will LOVE these for anytime of the day or night.


2 eggs
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
additional butter for cooking


In a medium bowl beat together the eggs, milk vanilla and melted butter.  Next add in flour, baking powder, sugar and salt and whisk until smooth.   Place a teaspoon of butter in a non stick skillet or on a griddle pan and spread out evenly.   Add about 1/4 cup of batter to the hot, buttered skillet.  When batter begins to set around the edges, carefully flip pancake using a large spatula.  Cook other side of pancake until golden brown and pancake is cooked all the way through.   Add another teaspoon of margarine to hot skillet in-between cooking each pancake, this will ensure a delicious crispy edge on each pancake.  Transfer pancakes to a serving tray and enjoy!  Serve with warm maple syrup or powdered sugar.
