Tiganites: A Greek Traditional Pancakes Recipe

Tiganites is a delicious Greek traditional pancakes version! This tiganites recipe is really easy to make as no cooking skills are required. It will take you only 20 minutes to prepare and around 40 minutes to cook. Don’t worry about the ingredients. Most probably, you already have these materials in your kitchen! So, what do you need to make tiganites? Some flour, baking powder, salt, sugar milk, butter or oil and honey! If you don’t like honey (who doesn’t actually?), you can sprinkle your tiganites with some powdered sugar and cinnamon! Last time we made tiganites, we had an even better idea. We covered them with some nutella! Absolutely mouthwatering! Don’t forget! Tiganites is a great way to welcome your Sunday mornings with your loved ones and family. This recipe serves 10 persons so you may need to adjust it depending on the number of people who will join you for breakfast!
