In This Recipe
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
Add cold water, mix well and let stand for 10 minutes.
Add boiling water and mix vigorously; let stand for a few minutes.
Drop ½ cup of batter to make thin pancakes on a hot ungreased non-stick pan. As the batter is quite thick, you may have to spread it out.
Bake on one side for 2 minutes or until bubbles break and pancake is firm and dry. Coax from bottom of pan with a flexible spatula and flip the ploye to cook for about 30 seconds on the other side. Remove from pan and repeat until you have used all the batter. For best results, stir the batter before making each ploye. NOTE: the ploye resembles a crepe in thickness when cooking and, contrary to a pancake, is only cooked on one side and briefly turned over for a few seconds.
