Authentic Swedish Pancakes

Rated as 4.81 out of 5 Stars

"This is an authentic Swedish pancake recipe that was taught to my father by his mother, who was born in Sweden. My father then passed it to me. Kids love them. Never any leftovers when I make them. To serve, you can spoon melted butter over pancakes and sprinkle with sugar, or serve with lingonberry sauce. You can also use the batter to make crepes."

  1. Beat eggs in a bowl with an electric mixer until thick and lemon-colored, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in milk.
  2. Sift flour, sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Add to egg mixture; mix until batter is smooth.
  3. Grease a griddle with butter; heat over medium heat. Drop tablespoonfuls of batter on the griddle; spread to make thin pancakes. Cook until light brown on bottom, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until second side is light brown, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Make sure to use real butter, not margarine. They can be made into larger cakes. However, the yield will be smaller.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

The only difference I made to this recipe was to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract, which I was taught from my father by his mother (my grandmother) from Sweden.

Very good. . .
