2 cups of flour
2 tablespoons of baking powder
1 vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of sugar
a pinch of salt

Liquid ingredients:
2 cups of milk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of olive oil
(some butter for the frying pan)

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and all the liquid ingredients in another bowl. Empty the liquid ingredients mixture in the flour mixture and mix until you get a smooth mash. Then, take a small frying pan and put half a teaspoon of butter in it. After it melts, pour some of the mash into the frying pan. When you see small bubbles appearing, turn your pancake on the other side. Leave it until it becomes brownish, and put it on a tray. Put your pancakes one on top of the other, so that they remain hot! Try it at home with your family and good luck! Don’t forget: you can serve them with honey, praline, syrup, marmalade … anything sweet!
