South African Bazaar Pancakes
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)

14-18 servings
First of all: these traditional pancakes are not thick and smallish. They are thin, about the thickness of a plastic school ruler or even thinner! Secondly, they are large -- made in pans of between 7" and 8" in diameter. The "bazaar" in this case comes from the name for the yearly Thanksgiving fêtes held by almost all churches across the land: the church bazaar. A "bazaar" is not a "bazaar" without a posse of chunky "aunties" and "uncles" (not relatives!) behind a church hall table, baking masses of pancakes on small paraffin stoves or, these days, more often on small Cadac gas tanks. Although the typical church bazaar has tables with cakes, cupcakes, tarts, pies, knitted goods, bags of sweets and various handcrafts, men and children cannot resist the "pancake table". The pancakes are made with great dexterity and very quickly, sprinkled thickly with cinnamon-sugar, rolled up, and handed to you on a piece of wax paper. Table manners are not important, so you eat the hot crunchy rolls any way you like ... Real comfort food! This pancake recipe is also used for all kinds of savoury fillings. It can be filled and rolled up, or folded into parcels, covered with cheese sauce, and baked. Number of crêpes or pancakes will depend on the size of your pan, so that is a guess.
