Crepes/Pancakes For Breakfast

I love pancakes and always when in France I have to have at least one or two crepes from the local van, it’s part of the holiday. All the low carb recipes I’ve tried are too thick and/or too heavy to be classed as crepes. So this morning I thought I’d take from my Yorkshire pudding recipe and adapt it. The result was thin light pancakes, which by the last one I cooked, were thin enough to call a crepe.

These are a little high in carbs but are a worthy substitute for regular pancakes but I will keep trying to find a really low carb recipe.
