Latvian thin Pancakes or Crêpes

Remember the post from yesterday!? Now here is the recipe I used to make Crêpes.  This recipe is from my mom and is old as me so that is the reason why it’s in grams. Never converted to cups.

      You could vary this recipe to make either thinner (lace like, with little holes) or a little thicker and more tender. For the first, use half milk, half water and leave the batter for at least two hours before cooking. For the second, you can add a little yeast dissolved in warm milk. The first are ideal for crêpe suzette, the second for stuffed ‘pancakes’. You can even fold in beaten egg whites for a different experience. Of course with three hungry little girls waiting for breakfast leaving the batter for 2 hours is not an option. Personally, I like the thin lace like ones with, as I said yesterday, a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinking of sugar.
