Thanks BAF & BT - my Dad was in demand for that an pancakes (two extremes I suppose). He was constantly cooking one or the other for the organizations. I recently came across his Swedish buttermilk pancake recipe and I'll post that one too when I figure out how to reduce it. I can remember as a kid them dumping 50 pound sacks of flour in a barrel and mixing. They were kind of a pancake and kind of a crepe, very thin and light.
