Tapioca pancakes are a simple and easy treat which only takes a few minutes to throw together. There's a bit of a learning curve, a technique to it. Thomas's cousins always make these for us when we visit Brazil. Traditionally they are made with tapioca flour (but a special one specifically for making pancakes). We decided to go untraditional and use tapioca pearls which are available at most US grocery stores. Marmeleiro honey is always a great choice for pancakes!
