Swedish Pancakes

February 5, 2012

From Mormor Karin. Use large flat (crepe) pan or cast iron pan with 5-6 small pancakes. Lots of butter on each pan before pour batter on!!!  Let butter bubble and turn golden. Pour on batter, thinly, wait until bubbles form before turning. First batch doesn’t turn out as good as rest, so take as a sample!! For the large pancakes, fold into thirds lengthwise on side plate, keep warm. Serve with sugar or lingonberries (or other berries). Sometimes serve with “Thursday” pea soup & Swedish Punch.

Serves 4.

Mix and let sit a bit.

  • 1/2 C Bisquick
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 C milk (Beat eggs and milk together)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 TB Sugar
