Step by step recipe

1 Pancake batter : Photo of step #1Melt 80 g butter in a small pan and leave to cook until it stops boiling. At this point it will give off a hazelnut smell (this is now 'beurre noisette').

Plunge the bottom of the pan into cold water for a few seconds (watch out for the gush of hot steam!) to cool it.
5 min.
2 Pancake batter : Photo of step #2Put into a blender goblet: 6 eggs, 60 g oil, 60 g caster sugar, 500 ml milk, 2 tablespoons rum and 1 pinch salt. 5 min.
3 Pancake batter : Photo of step #3Pour in the butter; if possible, strain it through a fine strainer. 3 min.
4 Pancake batter : Photo of step #4Then add 250 g flour.

Note: it is important to begin by pouring in the liquids to avoid forcing the blender motor.
2 min.
5 Pancake batter : Photo of step #5Mix on medium speed...
6 Pancake batter : Photo of step #6...until the batter is evenly mixed. 3 min.
7 Pancake batter : Photo of step #7Your pancake batter is ready for use.

Remarks

If you do not have a blender, you can use a whisk.

You will find plenty of recipes that tell you to leave the batter to rest, but having tried both ways (resting / not resting), I have not found that it makes any difference.

A variation worth trying: replace half the flour with chestnut flour.
