Ingredients

  • 1 Cup chickpea flour
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 Teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Large onion, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves (optional)

Directions

Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Put a well-seasoned or nonstick 12-inch pizza pan or cast-iron skillet in oven.

Sift chickpea flour into a bowl; add salt and pepper (more than 1 teaspoon can be used, if desired); then slowly add 1 cup lukewarm water, whisking to eliminate lumps.

Stir in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Cover, and let sit while oven heats, or as long as 12 hours. Batter should be about the consistency of heavy cream. If using onion and rosemary, stir them into batter.

Pour 2 tablespoons of oil into heated pan, and swirl to cover pan evenly. Pour in batter, and bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until pancake is firm and edges set. Heat broiler, and brush top of socca with 1 or 2 tablespoons of oil if it looks dry.

Set Socca a few inches away from broiler for a few minutes, just long enough to brown it spottily.

Cut it into wedges, and serve hot or warm.

Pancake Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Pancake Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
