- 6 tsp all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
- 1/4 tsp ground white pepper, or to taste
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten

4. To cook the pancakes: Place an 8" skillet over medium heat and brush with a little melted butter.
5. Stir the batter to recombine.
6. Then spoon 2-3 tablespoons of batter per pancake into the skillet, making 3 pancakes at a time.
