Isn't that a crepe? Nope. Swedish pancakes are lighter and more fluffy than crepes due to using less flour, more eggs and butter. Grandma would make these glorious pancakes for special occasions like Christmas morning. It was the best thing about Christmas right after opening presents. Now that I am older I make these for my kids on Sunday mornings. They are easy to whip up and they make Sunday mornings a delight for the family. Give them a try and you will be happy to cook them for your kids just so you can eat them for yourself.




225g cups all purpose flour

32g Tbsp. Sugar

6g tsp. Salt


515g cups milk

3 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. melted butter



-Pre heat a 12 inch pan on your stove over medium heat.

-While the pan is warming, in a large size bowl beat the eggs then add the milk and combine.

-Add vanilla and melted butter and combine.

-In a separate medium bowl combine flour, sugar and salt.

-Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while stirring. Whisk the mixture until all the lumps are gone.

-Spray the heated pan with non stick cooking spray and add 1/2 cup of batter to the pan. Tilt the pan quickly after adding mixture to distribute the batter around the bottom of the pan. Continue to tilt the pan until the batter is evenly distributed across the pan making a thin pancake.

-Flip the pancake when the edges begin to turn a slight brown.

-Cook on the other side for only about 1 minute.

-Remove from heat and serve or place on a separate paper towel lined pan in a warmed oven to keep warm until all pancakes are ready to serve.

-Fill the pancake with your favorite berries, bananas, jelly, or my favorite, peanut butter.

-Roll the pancake up and serve with a delicious syrup.

The Shiggin'

This is a straight forward recipe, however, where you can get into trouble is when you cook the batter. 1/2 cup of batter is the perfect amount for a 12 inch pan. Any more and the the pancake is too thick, any less and the pancake is too thin and will tear when flipping. Be sure to tilt the pan as you are pouring in the batter so the pancake doesn't have a thick spot.
