These Puff Up Pancakes, more like a French crepe, are delicious and also super fun. I remember as a kid my mum gathering the kids to watch the pancakes come out of the oven all puffed up and watch them sink down. The best way to describe the taste is like a pancake-slash omelette, but pastry-like.
If you love European-style pancakes, you could also use a Dutch pancake maker for pint-sized portions, perfect for kids.
