mix until you get a smooth fluid paste that runs in a single thin line from your ladle (meaning that it doesn’t fall off in blobs). Then heat the pan, smear oil over it using kitchen paper so that you only put a very thin layer of oil on the pan and make your first pancake. If it cooks too quickly, add more milk, if it takes too long, add an egg to help it set.
If you’re making pancakes for a lot of people use more pans or you’ll be stuck in the kitchen for a while! (I’m talking from personal experience here)

my pancakes puff up! In Mexico, when making corn tortillas, it is said that girls are ready for marriage when their tortillas puff up like this. I’m not looking to marry yet, but I guess it’s still nice to have my pancakes puff up! 🙂
I wonder what may be hiding under there…
Ooohhh, delicious! Could have done with some ham and cheese, but there weren’t any… 😦
Special Christmas pancakes with Spanish chorizo! 🙂
