tilt the pan to it spreads as thin as possible
after about 20 seconds turn it over

do they taste any good?
certainly dont taste BAD, but not really what i had envisioned when i (literally) dreamt them up.
popeye panckes is fine.
make them yourself and seeeee.
as they feature in Rose Elliott's 'The Bean Book' first printed in 1979. But they are ace!
i feel somewhat justified.
