  1. Pour milk into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave until slightly warm, 20 to 30 seconds. Whisk in butter. Whisk in eggs. Add flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt; blend briefly with an immersion blender to make a smooth batter.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bottom is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Try adding zest of 1/2 or a whole lemon to the batter.

I cooked mine on medium heat and it worked well! I slipped and put too much salt in... but other than that, they were delicious.

great just the way recipe laid out

Excellent! I put 2/3 cup of flour instead of the half cup. They were just a little too thin before.

Nice! Yesterday, I filled them with warm Greek yogurt and topped them fresh pear slices warmed in maple syrup. Today, I made them without the vanilla then filled them with wilted spinach, sliced...

These are very similar to a crepe. The baking powder makes them spongier than a crepe. These were very good the next day, too. Thank you for the recipe.
