I've seen it done. I know it can be done. And now I'm sure this is not the recipe to do it with. I even made 2 batches thinking I was the problem. I adjusted the heat the cooking time and even thinned out the batter. Unless you're looking for an exercise in frustration don't bother even trying this one. Read More

This recipe worked well when I made it on my griddle. It works better when the pan isn't greased (I used butter). It has to be spread very thin and be quite brown before removal or else it remains soft and floppy more like a crepe. Also I beat the egg whites but I would recommend leaving them unbeaten so that they will not puff up so when cooked. Thanks for this! Read More
