(That's the Humanist version of Shrove Tuesday - it's always best to keep religion out of things as far as possible.)

FFS! I had scrambled eggs for brekky had I known I would have had pancakes if I had known. As for the formula I'm sure it works but in their example they use 0.15 cm thickness for a pancake, that's 15mm or about as thick as your thumb! Feck me I wouldn't be strong enough to toss that mother.
This is what I use for thin crepe like pancakes;
4 eggs,
4 tablespoons of flour,
Enough milk to make a very thin batter,
Pinch of salt,
Whisk it all up then add an ounce of melted butter to finish it (this makes a big difference).
The batter should be thin enough that when you add it to a hot pan with a knob more of butter it should be able to run around the pan quickly to cover the bottom, they end up about 3 or 4mm thick.
Sugar and lemon or orange juice or flambé with whiskey and serve with ice cream or that bannoffee caramel from a tin with sliced bananas and cream.
For savoury tomato sauce (home made with onion and garlic and herbs) small pieces of ham and cheese or a white sauce with leeks and prawns is nice.
Thanks that's supper sorted.

It all depends. If you want thicker pancakes then you need a thicker batter.

After that it's all down to personal preference.

I reckon the recipe is for Yankee pancakes they like them thick. I had a crispy duck and chili sauce one first, then two with lemon and sugar then before I went to bed had another with cheese and tomato sauce, think I did pcd justice.
