Introduction

Hello everyone,

This is a detailed guide on making real Belgian pancakes. In Belgium we make these a lot at many occasions such as childrens birthday parties, family gatherings,carnivale afternoon treats and on the 2nd of November on All Souls' Day but hardly ever for breakfast.

We also have a slightly different taste in toppings, ranging from jams over white granulated sugar, medium brow sugar, the very dark sugar, honey, fruits or even Nutella chocolate paste.

I often make these with soy milk and they taste also very good. So the recipe can be easily adapted for people that are lactose intolerant.

This batter will make about 10 pancakes. I eat about three and that's enough. The nutritional value provided here is for 1 pancake.

Ingredients

    125 grams of white flour
    1 teaspoon of baking powder
    250 ml (= about 1 cup) nonfat milk
    2 large eggs
    1 individual packet of granulated sugar (=1 tablespoon)
    8 tablespoons of water

Directions

Short description: mix everything, bake in a pan, eat
************************************
Detailed instructions: Mix the flour, baking powder in a bowl. Make a little hole in the middle and add 2 eggs in the hole. While mixing together, carefully add milk. When you stirr everything together you can brake peaces of the flour-wal on the side so the flour mixes in bit by bit. Make sure there are no lumps left in the batter. Add the packet of granulated sugar. It's can also be replaced by the same amount of vanilla suger.
Now add the 8 tablespoons of water to make the batter more liquid.
******************************
Now comes the fun part.
******************************
Put a non-stick pan with a diameter of about 24 cm (=10 inch) on a medium heat. The pan should be warm enough to make a drop of water siss. Add a little bit of butter/margarine/oil but not too much, like the size of a pea to the pan.
******************************
Pour about 100 ml (= 0.4 cups) of the batter in the pan. Now you have to be quick and spread the batter over the entire pan because we want to make thin pancakes. Move the pan from the wrist. After a while you really get the hang of it and will be able to make perfect circles. If you are not so perfectionistic as I am, this step will be easier.
******************************
When you see little bubbles all over the pancake it's time to turn them. This can be done by tossing the pancake in the air letting it flip over preferably putting on a big show when there are children watching or just with a spatula. Wait a while for the other side to brown.
******************************
When you want to keep the pancakes warm while you bake some more, you can put them on a plate over a pan with boiling water and cover them with aluminium foil.
******************************
This batter will make about 10 pancakes. Yummy!
