Sweet Pan Bread

Mother made these for us as children.
She whipped together water, flour and sugar then cooked the batter in a skillet like you would pancakes. Then buttered them and topped with jam and sometimes even confectioners sugar.
They resemble crepes but they're more dense and a bit chewy in texture.
This version I used milk instead of water and added vanilla extract.
Yields four (6 to 7 inch in diameter)
Sweet Pan Breads
1 cup warm milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla 
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter, for frying and topping
1/4 cup strawberry preserves or jam, for topping
1/8 cup Powdered confectionery sugar, for topping
Heat milk, add vanilla and sugar, whisk in flour. Pour into hot buttered skillet, cook until golden on both sides. Butter top then remove from pan, sprinkle with powdered sugar and spread on jam.
Serve hot.
