Recipe Notes

This recipe works for pancakes too!!! Use a cast iron griddle/comal on low to medium low heat. Cook until bubbles break through on the top of batter, stay open and the batter looks firm. Flip and cook approx. 1-2 minute on other side. Just be careful not to have your heat set too high or they will burn faster than they can cook!
