Delicious "pancakes" made in Spain

By Amelia Perez

When I wake up full of energy and wanting to eat the day, that day is pancake breakfast. There is no one who can resist American pancakes or pancakes, as they are also called. Whether you are a cook or not, this recipe will make you a star for a day. Imagine what you will succeed with the children or with some friends on a Sunday morning in a rural house. I have verified if it is announced in the morning that they are going to have pancakes for breakfast, there will be more than one volunteer willing to help set the stage.

Many of you have asked me for the recipe when you saw the photos published on social networks. Being true to my promise to post the recipe, here it goes!

Setting a table with love is a fundamental part of starting the day with joy.

First things first, put on your apron and organize the ingredients. The quantities below are for two people and about eight pancakes will come out depending on the size.

I make this recipe on a stove. It can also be done in vitro, and I warn you because times can vary from one type of kitchen to another. Here you will have to use intuition and some imagination.

The preparation of the recipe is simple and quick, but it is essential to let the mixture rest for a few minutes so that they come out fluffy.

Then we put the pan over a medium heat with a few drops of olive oil, passing an absorbent paper to remove the excess oil so as not to form smoke. You may have to open the window or use the extractor during the process. With a saucepan, pour the mixture and form the pancakes, leave over medium heat until it has filled with bubbles (this can take 3 to 4 minutes) and we can turn the pancakes.

While I'm making them, I usually stack them in the shape of a tower so that between them they keep heat and don't get cold, or I put them in the warm oven. The result is wafers with a spongy texture with an approximate diameter of 12 cm.

At first they may not come out perfectly in shape, but they are just as delicious.

This recipe is to be religiously tried with Canadian Maple Syrup. Due to the high price of this ingredient, it may be a good idea to embroider the recipe to “experiment with water instead of champagne” beforehand. Beware of cheap imitations or products that are presented as pancake syrup . These products are loaded with fructose, corn syrup and artificial maple extract and are not a healthy recommendation.

Instead of maple syrup, you can use agave syrup, a natural syrup extracted from the agave, the tequila plant.

I recommend the agave syrup instead, a natural syrup extracted from the agave, the tequila plant. Ok, you got me, I also like to wet my lips with a good reposado tequila from time to time. Agave syrup can be found in any supermarket.

Honey is another substitute for syrup. Try to serve a quality natural unadulterated honey.
