David Eyre Pancake

It should be no surprise that the David Eyre Pancake was the second recipe I decided to include here. It's a classic - a pancake with a pedigree (and its own Wikipedia page). With a long history, read about it here and here, it's likely been many things to many people. To us, it's our light indulgence on the weekend. Light because there's only 1/2 cup of flour; indulgent as there's 4 tablespoons of butter. 

It's the perfect type of pancake for technophiles that sit most of the day and burn 0 calories, but demand tasty food. It's buttery and crisp in all the right places. I've been known to dallop greek yogurt and drizzle raspberry jam on mine -- but it's divine on its own too. We've had it for breakfast only, but it could make a lovely dessert with an indulgent accompaniment.
