Civil War Pancake Recipe

  We are trying something new this event. We normally stick to eggs for breakfast but this time we are thinking of trying pancakes. These "pancakes" are actually closer to crepes, being thinner and rolled up with a filling inside.


- 1 Cup Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Cup Milk
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- Butter
-Powdered Sugar (Granulated Sugar pounded in a mortar) or Preserves.


Whisk the eggs separately, add milk and salt and slowly mix in the flour. Heat up a skillet or frying pan. Add 1/2 ounce of butter to coat the pan in between frying pancakes.  Pour in approximately 1/2 cup of batter into the pan, making sure that the pancake will be thin enough to flip and roll them. When the pancake is solid on one side, flip it with a spatula. and fry the other side. Once out of the pan and cool enough to touch, sift powdered sugar or spread preserves on the top and roll the pancake up. Eat right away. 

I'll post some pictures after we make them. I can't wait, I've never been to this event before. For more recipes, visit our "receipt book" using the image link on the right or visit my blog World Turn'd Upside Down.
