Swedish Pancakes
  • Servings: 4
  • Ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or honey, plus more for serving
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus butter for cooking
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Berries or other fresh fruit
  • Top quality preserves
  • Sugar or honey
  • Real maple syrup
  • Whipped cream
  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Add the eggs, milk, and sugar, stirring with a fork until a light batter is formed. Check to make sure there are no lumps. Stir in the melted butter. Let rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons butter over medium heat in a cast-iron or other heavy skillet. Add 1/3 cup of the batter and immediately tilt the skillet so that the batter spreads out evenly. Cook for approximately 3 minutes, or until the batter has set on top. Flip using a spatula. Cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat, stacking the pancakes on a warm plate.
  3. Spoon fruit toppings or sugar across each pancake, and then roll each pancake up. Serve warm.
  4. Serves 2 to 4.
In Scandinavia, these crepe-like pancakes are often served for dinner. Although they are perfect served as a base for either sweet or savory toppings, they’re absolutely divine when paired with fresh fruit and whipped cream, good preserves or maple syrup.
