  • 1 ts Oil - optional


Place water, 1 1/4C milk and sugar in heavy bottom medium saucepan and
bring to a simmer. When liquid just comes to a simmer slowly sprinkle in

non-stick griddle brush lightly with oil. For each pancake, ladle 1/4c

couple of bubbles appear on surface, (this type of pancake has few bubbles
compared to regular ones) and underside is lightly brown. Turn and cook on
other side.

to be sure it is tender and has no crunch to it. You could also replace
half of melted butter with melted strained bacon fat.
