Quick Chinese Pancakes

Yield 12 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon stick margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • Cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Place the flour in a medium bowl. Combine milk, margarine, and egg; add milk mixture to flour, stirring with a whisk until blended. Stir in fresh chives and five-spice powder. Cover and chill for 1 hour.

  2. Place an 8-inch crepe pan or nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Remove pan from heat, and pour a scant 1/4 cup batter into pan; quickly tilt pan in all directions so batter covers bottom of pan. Cook about 1 minute.

  3. Carefully lift edge of pancake with a spatula to test for doneness. The pancake will be ready to turn when it can be shaken loose from pan and the underside is lightly browned. Turn pancake over; cook 30 seconds on the other side.

  4. Place the pancake on a towel, and cool. Repeat the procedure until all of the batter is used. Stack the pancakes between single layers of wax paper or paper towels to prevent pancakes from sticking.
