SWEDISH PANCAKES RECIPE

Every year during Koch Family Cabin Week my Aunt Sandy makes these Swedish pancakes (extremely similar to crepes) one morning for breakfast.  They are consistently my favorite breakfast during that week, and little did I know, they are super simple to make!



So, stupidly the last couple of times I made these, I forgot to take pictures of the process, but I still wanted to share the recipe with you now, and I will add pictures the next time I make them! 

So here's what you'll need:
  • Pancakes
    • 3 Large eggs
    • 1/2 Cup of milk
    • 3/4 Cups of flour
    • 1 Tbsp Sugar
    • 1/2 Tsp Salt
    • Butter
  • Toppings
    • Powdered sugar
    • Fresh berries
    • Syrup

And here's what you do:
  • Beat eggs until "lemony," add milk and flour a little at a time, beating mixture in between additions.  Once you've beaten all of the flour, milk, and egg together completely, add sugar and salt, mix well.
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat on the stove top, melt a small amount of butter in the bottom of the pan (do this in between each fill).
  • Fill pan with a small amount of batter and swirl around to line the bottom of the pan with a thin coat of batter, cook until the pancake slides easily, flip and fry the other side for 1 minute.(there's not really an exact measurement for how much batter to use in this step, my general estimate/suggestion is to start with about 1/4 - 1/3 cups of batter and use your best judgment from there.  Just remember that it needs to be a thin coating).
  • Slide pancake out of the pan and onto a plate.
  • Drizzle with syrup, sprinkle with powdered sugar, tops with fresh berries and enjoy!

Side notes:

  • There are a bunch of different ways that you can serve/eat these.  We prefer to roll them up (i.e. a fruit roll up) then apply our toppings and eat them that way.  I have also seen them done by filling them with the toppings first and then rolling them up.  I have also seen them folded instead of rolled.  They are delicious no matter which way you choose!
  • Our toppings of choice are the ones that I have listed in the recipe; however, Nutella, bananas, caramel, whipped cream, etc. are all also delicious options!  I've even done ham and cheese for a more savory option!  Get creative with your toppings and if you have a unique/awesome idea for toppings, please share them!  I would love to hear what you've come up with!
