These perfectly thin pancakes will be perfect to serve for Easter breakfast or brunch. They would also be wonderful for Mother’s day. These pancakes are the perfect texture in between a crepe and a pancake.

These homemade pancakes remind me of some pancakes I have enjoyed a few time in the Amanas at an Amish restaurant. They have a spongy yet cake like texture. I cooked them in my non-stick skillet as is. I was trying to keep the calories down. However, if you aren’t worried about counting your calories, you can add some butter or oil to the skillet before adding the batter. This will give the pancakes crispy edges. I must admit they are amazing this way.

The way to top these thin pancakes are endless. They are delicious topped with fresh strawberries, syrup and a little whipping cream. Good ol’ butter and maple syrup are also delicious. Fruit jam or preserves is another great option. We like them with my freezer strawberry jam. Here are some recipes for homemade syrups that would also be excellent choices for these. Get creative!
