Swedish Pancakes from Amy of Mod Podge Rocks…
My great-grandfather was Norwegian – straight off the boat! My mom’s side of the family has Norwegian pride, and many a Scandahoovian joke is thrown around at family functions. We not only love the Scandanavian culture, but the deserts – no one can do heavy cream like a Norwegian! This recipe for Swedish pancakes is actually from my great-grandfather, and I can tell you that it’s loved by everyone in family including myself and my four brothers. There is nothing better than waking up on the morning of my birthday and my mom has made me a Swedish pancake breakfast. It’s all I ask for on my big day!
2 cups milk
4 tablespoon butter, melted
2 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Beat eggs until thick.
- Add milk to the eggs.
- Add melted butter to the milk and egg mixture.
- Add sugar and stir until dissolved.
- In a separate bowl, mix flour and baking powder.
- Adding one third at a time, add the flour mixture to the egg mixture. Stir but do not beat. Batter will be lumpy.
- Heat a griddle to medium high. Using approximately 1/8 cup of batter, pour into a thin circle on griddle. When top of pancake has lots of “holes” and turns from shiny to flat looking, turn it over for about 30 seconds.
- As you remove the pancake from the griddle, roll it into a tube.
- Eat with syrup, jam, fruit, lemon and powdered sugar or whatever you like — not sardines though. Sardines suck.
