Some people on Planet Debian seem to think that using oil for pancakes is a good idea. They really taste so much better if you use real butter (and preferably an iron pan, not a non-stick one).
Oh, and a nice receipe, which almost matches another one is:
- 1l milk
- 4 eggs
- 5dl flour (I use a mix of coarser and finer flour, but you can use anything you want)
Mix milk and flour, then add eggs last (blends better that way).
