Tiganites: Greek Pancakes
Some Greeks believe the popular breakfast “tiganites” the first documented pancake in the world. I really do not know if this is the first, but the Greek pancakes are certainly the easiest!
Make these delicious and fluffy pancakes (tiganites) in Greek style from scratch in less than 30 minutes with ingredients you already have.
Give Mediterranean flavor and sprinkle honey while still warm and chopped walnuts. Enjoy it!
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of dry yeast
1/2 tsp of salt
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 cups of lukewarm water
1/2 cup of warm honey
Pour water and the yeast into a large bowl .
Mix with a fork, so that the yeast is fully dissolved.
In the same bowl, add the remaining ingredients for pancakes and whisk to form smooth dough.
Cover with a wrap and set aside for 15-20 minutes until the dough starts to rise.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and put olive oil to cover bottom of pan (approx. 2 tablespoons).
Take 1-2 tablespoons of dough (depending on how big you want them) and put in the pan.
Do not put much because pancakes inflate.
Fry until golden and turn them the other side.
Transfer them on kitchen paper to absorb the oil and repeat the same with others.
Serve while still warm, poured with honey and sprinkled with chopped walnuts.
