Ohukaisets (Finnish Pancakes)

We often love to have breakfast for dinner and while our favorite is typically crepes, I didn't have enough eggs for my regular recipe, and I thought I'd try the recipe I had for these Finnish Pancakes that required only one egg for the recipe we used. I still made them in my crepe pan using my crepe turner (as pictured below) but I realized that these take more butter in the pan because they stick more, and they're a bit sweeter. But we really did enjoy them. While the recipe from "Life Tastes Good Again" said to serve them with strawberry jam and whipped cream, we preferred the savory ones.

Gluten Free Ohukaisets (Finnish Pancakes)

1 1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 T. oil
3/4 cup + 2 T. featherlight mix
1 egg

Beat ingredients together
Pour into pan and swirl around so that it covers the pan. When this is cooked on the bottom, flip it over and cook the underside.
Remove from pan and cook until finished. I just stack them on a plate and wait to eat them.
Then, if I want savory ones, I'll take the cooked cake, put some ham and cheese down the center, and roll it up in the middle of the griddle and heat up. The one on the left in the top image shows this. The one on the right has strawberry jam spread around, then rolled up, and powdered sugar sprinkled on top. These were good.

What does the ingredient 1/2 + 1/2 + 1 T. featherlight mix mean?
Do I use 2 T. featherlight mix?
Or, do I mix 1 T. featherlight mix into some (how much) 1/2 & 1/2 milk?

Sorry, I have no idea why I typed what I did, that was totally confusing. I hope I fixed it okay. 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp, which was not at all intelligible from what was written prior. Thanks for asking.
