Pancakes with the rule of 4 3 2 1, a quick and very easy recipe to make for Candlemas, for Mardi Gras, or if you simply have a sudden craving for pancakes.
- 4 glasses of milk of 25 cl
- 3 medium fresh eggs
- 2 glasses of flour of 25 cl
- 1 pinch of salt
Preparation 4 mins
In a bowl, mix with a hand whisk: flour, salt, whole eggs and dilute, little by little, all the milk, until you obtain a very smooth pancake batter.
Let it rest for at least 30 minutes in a cool place, if there are any lumps, whisk it again vigorously.
Preheat your crepe maker for a few minutes over low heat, then grease it with hourske-up remover disc soaked in vegetable oil. If the crepe maker is non-stick, it will be useless to repeat the operation between each crepe. As soon as you hear a light crackling, pour a ladle of batter to cover the entire surface, help yourself with a pancake rake if you have one, and sauté the pancake when the surface seems dry. Repeat the process until your bowl is empty.
Serve hot, with the sweet or savory garnish of your choice?!
An old legend has it that to ensure prosperity throughout the year, pancakes must be sautéed with a coin in hand while reciting this song: “On the eve of Candlemas…, Winter happens or take rigor, If you know how to hold your frying pan well, The money is yours in quantity, But beware of the bad star, If you put your pancake aside.
