Proceed to cook the pancakes:
Heat a non-stick pan and oil it very lightly with a paper towel. Pour in a small ladleful of batter, tilting the pan to distribute the batter evenly. Wait until one side is cooked before turning it over. Cook all the pancakes in this way.
You can accompany them with powdered sugar, jam, chestnut cream, spread, whipped cream.
