  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.
  3. In a heavy skillet, heat about 1/4-inch of oil until a small fleck of batter sizzles on contact.
  4. Using a tablespoon, form thin pancakes, flattening the batter once it's in the pan. Fry on both sides until brown, adding additional oil if necessary.
  5. Transfer cooked pancakes to heated oven until serving time.
