Pancake in pan by Linsenhejhej cc3.0

Brazilian pancakes are extra thin but not crêpe thin, or thick like heavy pancakes. However, they are a lot hardier. In fact, they are a meal in themselves. They do require a little work but are definitely worth every minute. The extra milk and a little oil make them easy to roll.

Traditionally, they are rolled up with a meat filling.
