Simple French recipe for a snack, dessert or breakfast! 



  • 2 1/2cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil (and a bit more)
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup milk*


  1. Sift the flour and the sugar in a big mixing bowl, add the eggs, oil, and butter and start mixing. When it starts to be a bit homogeneous, add the milk gradually. Start with 1/4 cup, then another and another. Mix with whisk each time. When there are no lumps left and you have added all the milk, your dough is ready.
  2. Heat a large frying pan** on medium heat + (I have 8 heats, I use 5,5). Pour a little oil on a paper towel and use it to oil your frying pan. When it’s hot, pour one ladle of the dough on the pan and spread the pan with the dough by turning it. When the ends start to come off, return and let 2/3 minutes. After this, it will be ready, make sure the dough is not still light, you must have some brown. Then, repeat! Don’t forget to sometimes oil a little bit the pan.


*The recipe works perfectly with almond milk or other plant-based milk.
**I highly recommend a nonstick frying pan.
