- 2 eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup beer at room temperature
- 2 Tbsp melted butter or vegetable oil
- Blender, food processor, or mixing bowl and whisk
- griddle, or 9" frying pan
- Mix all liquids first, including the butter or oil.
- Mix in the eggs.
- Mix in the flour.
- If mixing by hand, mix for 3 minutes until smooth. If using a blender, mix at high speed for one minute.
- Stop, and scrape down the batter on the sides of the bowl, then blend the smooth mixture for 30 seconds to one minute more.
- If you mixed the batter by hand, let it rest for one hour. Otherwise, use it immediately.
- Oil and heat your skillet until a sprinkle of water on the surface immediately boils.
- Pour the batter onto the griddle as a thin layer, and give it about a minute and a half per side. The fnished product should be light brown (not even golden, like pancakes) and chewy, but not wet.
