Uruguayan Pancakes

Our version of “pancakes” in Uruguay is different than the classic American pancakes. Ours are more like crepes than pancakes but are called “panqueques”in Spanish  They are usually made for dessert or for “merienda” which is a n afternoon snack.They are super easy to make and we really like them. They are filled with dulce de leche (caramel) and they are sinful with Nutella!
You can also use this recipe for any dessert crepe you’d like and fill them up with fruits. They are also delicious with cinnamon sugar!

  • 1 3/4 cups of flour
  • 1/2 tsp pf salt
  • 2 cups of milk (I use 2% milk)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 TBSP of  melted butter plus more for the skillet
Combine all ingredients and put the batter in a Pyrex for easy pouring into the skillet

Step one: put a little butter in the pan, and add about 1/3 cup of batter into skillet.

 Keep turning the skillet so the whole surface is covered by the batter. With a spatula keep loosening the edges and when it is brown flip so it can cook on the other side.


Spread a little dulce de leche, roll up and sprinkle with powder sugar.
