These little pancake ice cream sandwiches are the perfect way to start a special morning!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 15 mini ice cream sandwiches
For the pancakes
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 - 1 tablespoon water
- oil - for cooking the pancakes
For the ice cream sandwiches
- 1 small tub vanilla ice cream (about 1/4 gallon or 1 liter)
- sprinkles - to decorate (optional)
To make the pancakes
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and honey until it is light and fluffy, and the eggs are a light yellow color.
Sift in the flour and baking powder, and mix until everything is just combined. Let the batter rest for 15 minutes.
When the batter is almost done resting, preheat a crepe pan (or large skillet with a flat bottom) to medium heat.
Stir in 1/2 a tablespoon of water to the batter at a time, stopping when the batter becomes thin enough that it flows off the end of the whisk smoothly like a very thin ribbon. The batter will be thicker than most other pancake batters. I used 1 tablespoon of water.
Dip a paper towel in oil, and carefully wipe the bottom of the pan with the oil, coating it evenly. Once the oil is hot, carefully spoon in 1/2 cup of the batter. Using a crepe fork, quickly spread the batter evenly across the pan so it is 1/4 inch (1/2 cm) thick.
When the surface of the batter starts to bubble (about 30 seconds to 1 minute), carefully flip the pancake to the other side. Cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Cool pancakes on a cooling rack.
