Ingredients

4 large eggs, beaten
1 cup whole milk (do not use low fat)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
sugar or powdered sugar for topping, optional
fresh lemon juice for topping, optional

Instructions

Put your oven on low heat so it will keep pancakes warm while you make them.

Mix all ingredients in a blender except the optional toppings. 

Preheat a greased skillet over medium-high heat. (We use butter.)

Drop batter (a few tablespoons) in skillet. 

Brown on both sides over low heat (about 45 seconds a side).

Sprinkle with sugar and lemon juice (if using).

Yield: 

About 18 pancakes

Amazing!

They are tasty, easy to make, and the lemon adds just the right amount of zing!
Thank you!

Pancakes are Wonderful!

These homemade pancakes are the best! They are so easy to make—why buy pancake mix?
I used my Vitamix blender and presto!

so yummy

Finally making these pancakes on a weekend. It's great that they can be whipped up in a blender! They're a different kind of pancake, more like a crepe. I love them!

Wonderful Memories

I remember having these as a child in Kent England in the early '60s - best time of my life! After so long - first time I have made them for my grand-children here in the great State of Alabama!

Best pancakes ever!

These are the best pancakes ever! They're like crepes and I love the lemon and sugar icing though they're great plain too. A definite keeper.

SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKES

I was curious as to what is layered between these cute pancakes... shredded lettuce, cabbage,
cheese? Just can't picture what else it might be.... maybe shredded butter? Ok, enough fun, please tell me what it is!

Pancakes

Hi Judith, We’ve actually updated the recipe (and photo) since you commented to better reflect the British heritage of the Shrove Tuesday pancake. However, the prior pancake photo showed shredded coconut. As an option, you can sprinkle shredded coconut onto your pancake batter; when the pancakes cook on the griddle, the coconut gets nicely toasted.  Then add an extra layer shredded coconut when serving. Enjoy your pancakes any way you like them!

I will be making this

I will be making this tomorrow

I usually make potato

I usually make potato pancakes, I didn't realize people made regular pancakes for the day. And I cheat, I use a potato pancake mix but add real potatoes and other left over veggies.
But this looks like a great and versatile recipe, a keeper.
Thanks
