Ethiopian Flat Bread

This recipe makes such a perfect pancake that you will want it for breakfast with butter and syrup as well as for soaking up spicy sauces later in the day. The flatness is what makes it divine.

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 beaten eggs
