My little Persian Pancakes

Persian Pancake Recipe

We love pancakes here at My Little Persian Kitchen! But who doesn’t? They are such a nostalgic treat and so versatile too. Sweet or savoury, scotch, crepes or buttermilk, I like them all.

Every year as a child we would have pancakes for dinner on pancake day without fail. They would be plain with lemon juice and sugar, some with sultana’s in, some without. Always hot & straight out of the pan, they always felt like such a treat. I mean, when else in the year can you legitimately eat cake for dinner?!

This variation is one of my faves. They are super quick, crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle and perfect with a good drizzle of maple syrup or glug of honey. Yum! Happy flipping! 🙂
