I grew up in Little Sweden, USA, and my great-grandparents on my Mom's side were all from Sweden. This is the recipe I grew up with (I added the nutmeg as I like nutmeg). I love these and make them for family brunches all the time. They even taste good as leftovers, as pancakes again, or with peanut butter instead. We serve these with just syrup and butter, but many use lingonberries, or other fruit or jams.

  • Heat a seasoned griddle over medium-high heat. Ladle 1/4 to 1/2 cup of batter onto the griddle and spread thinly. Cook until top looks barely dry, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Slide a long, thin spatula under pancake to loosen edges; flip. Continue cooking until just browned on the second side, about 1 minute more.

  • Roll up pancakes and serve a few at a time.

Cook's Notes:

My Grandma always stated that they weren't real Swedish pancakes if not made on a cast iron griddle. They can also be made with a plett pan, which makes silver dollar pancakes. Both are traditional methods. Crepe pans work well, as do electric nonstick griddles.

The pancakes can be kept in a warm oven preheated to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C) until all are done and ready to serve.

These are very similar to crepes but with less flour and eggs. The pan needs to be buttered between each pancake to facilitate easy flipping, they are very delicate, I used 1/3 cup measure but it ripped easily would recommend 1/2 cup measure. Served with strawberry jam and cinnamon sugar, my sons enjoyed them. Yielded 10 pancakes with 1/3 cup measure. Read More
