A few months ago I was on my way to Ourense and listened to Radio3. Although it is a music chain they were in the middle of a dispute about the origin of such a tasty dessert, it turns out that it comes from the Camino de Santiago. One of the announcers (I don’t remember the name) commented that thanks to the road, in the Middle Ages pilgrims brought to France what they now call “crêpes”.

Although I have read that in ancient times in French Brittany this milk cake was cooked but to fill with meat or any other ratatouille.

Preparation of the milk pancakes

  1. The paste-cream is quite easy to prepare. In a bowl we pour the milk, the flour, a pinch of salt, the eggs and the zest of a lemon.
  2. Mix everything with the mixer without lumps. Let it rest for an hour so that it finishes thickening although the cream must be loose.
  3. In a hot pan (very important, it must be non-stick), sprinkle with a few drops of olive oil. The real ones would be with bacon or lard.
  4. When it is hot, add the pasta so that it covers the entire bottom, only just enough, so that they are fine.
  5. We have it for half a minute at medium temperature and turn it over with a fork.
  6. If the fork is not good for you, you can use the trick of turning the pan with a plate as if it were a potato omelette. As you get more practical, it will no longer be necessary.
  7. For each pancake we must add drops of oil.
  8. We remove them on a plate (we can roll them up, make them a handkerchief or leave them as is).
