    1. Whisk water, ground almonds, vegetable oil, cream, baking powder and vanilla extract together in a microwave-safe bowl.
    2. Cook in the microwave on high until a gooey batter forms, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
    3. Let batter rest until cooled slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in egg until well-blended.
    4. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Drop pancake batter onto the pan and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining pancake batter.

    Put the egg in to begin with, skip the microwave, double the dry ingredients, use coconut oil, vanilla almond milk vs cream, cook like a crepe in a 10" frypan on about 4/10 heat, cut in quarters to turn, makes 'em stronger, more like a pancake, easier to work with.  -  12 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were very thin and had little crater-like indentations. My batter thickened in the microwave at the 2 minute mark. I used 2 T. batter per pancake which made 4 in all. I could not cook them on medium high, or they would have burned. The time frame for cooking each pancake was less as well. All that said, let's face it, strawberries and syrup make anything much more palatable. In the end, breakfast was tasty and low-carb and will hold me well till lunch.  -  17 Mar 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These cakes were to thin to turn without breaking. Nothing like what I was looking for in a "pancake". The taste of egg was overpowering. My family didn't finish them, and requested I try another recipe.  -  17 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
