    I converted the quantities to American equivalents but used only 2 Tablespoons of melted butter instead of 70 grams. Also used self-rising flour and no baking powder. And it was still perfect. The recipe made six 4" pancakes using 1/3 c. batter for each. Also did not chill as I was short on time.  -  17 Aug 2017


    I've tried loads of different pancake recipes, this one is by far the tastiest and brings back many USA breakfast memories!  -  09 Feb 2016
