Thanks jedi, I've been looking for a good 5-spice recipe for the longest time.
Here's a great breakfast one. They are a cross between crepes and swedish pancakes as they were concocted by me from a combination of my grandma's recipes.
for a family (half of this for 1-2 people)
4 eggs - beat
1C flour, add to eggs and use whisk. It will get thick, but you have to use this order or stuff will get lumpy.
2C milk (I'd go with 1 or 2%) add slowly while whisking.
3T melted butter (no fake shit, Land O Lakes preferred. Jedi can hook us up) Mix that in.
use a 1/4C measuring cup and fill it about 80% (you can experiment with this number). For the first one, have the pan heated to medium and add a little bit of butter(just enought to coat the bottom very lightly when spread with the spatula). Add your 80% of 1/4C of batter and hold and move the pan in a way that the batter will spread thin, covering most of the bottom of the pan. The trick is to try to get it the same thickness near the edges of the thing. Let it sit on the heat. flip it when there are golden spots on the bottom (first one may stick at spots so scraping may be required, with a calphalon pan, it's good by the next one). That side should take like a minute.
There are a few ways to eat these, each enjoyable.
1. Sprinkle with table sugar, roll up, sprinkle with more sugar. - Old skool, my dad taught me this one and it's my current favorite.
2. Syrup (maple or fruit flavored) - I just never got into this one
3. Jelly (my son's favorite, till I turned him on to straight sugar)
4. Stack them with jelly between each layer (spread thin) - my childhood favorite
5. Make a mixture of diced fruit with the same fruit flavored syrup (strawberries work best) and roll that up in there with some whipped cream - my HS favorite.
I am sure you could do a blintz type thing or whatever, but since these are not exactly crepes, I'll just mention the types I do. I usually make these every weekend.
I have one for german pancakes that I'll post sometime soon, I haven't made them in a while so I can't remember the recipe, but they are stellar too.
ps... Looking for good Indian food recipes. Chicken Marsala (Or any other North Indian chicken/lamb dish) and Gulab Jamun (dessert).
