Note: They really do melt in your mouth and are about as easy to make as stuff you pour from a container. Serve them with butter and carb-free or low-carb syrups, fresh fruit, or blueberry sauce. If all you want to eat is pancakes, the recipe serves one. Combined with sausage, ham or something else, this is a serving for two.
PREPARATION TIME: 5 minutes. COOKING TIME: 3 to 4 minutes.
SERVING SIZE, three to four 3-inch pancakes. CARBS PER SERVING,: 2.6 grams of carb. NUMBER OF SERVINGS: 1 to 2.
Preheat a heavy, nonstick, large griddle over medium to medium-low heat.
Combine ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Beat vigorously with a fork or wire whish until the batter is well mixed and smooth.
Spoon batter onto the hot ungreased griddle (it is hot enough when a drop of water splashed on it bounces around). Allow for expansion of pancakes. (Note the batter is a bit on the thin side; that’s okay.) Watch for bubbles and a hint of dryness on top before turning. The pancakes tend to darken more quickly than other pancakes you may be used to, so check early.

This tasted more like a pancake than French toast, but was great, especially with maple syrup. if it's difficult to flip, cut the pancake in half.
