Swedish Pancakes

Swedish Pancakes

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon butter - melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
This Recipe makes about 3-4 of the 10" pancakes.

And use a 10-12" round skillet or frying pan.

First lightly beat the egg in a medium sized bowl, then add sugar, milk, salt and flour, mix well, melt the butter in the frying pan (or skillet) then while stirring the mixture add melted butter to it, continue mixing until there are no lumps, don't forget to scrape the sides of the bowl.

Once the batter is well mixed, then over medium heat pour just enough batter in the pan to cover the bottom of the pan, cook until the top of it is "dry" then flip the pancake. This takes a fair amount of finesse, as the pancake is large and not very 'tough'. I get the spatula underneath the pancake and make sure that all around the pancake is loose first, then quickly flip it.

After the flip, shake the pan a bit to get the pancake flattened out and unstuck from all parts of the pan. Melt a small partial teaspoon (approx. 1/2 tsp) of butter in the pan before starting the next pancake.

I usually cook each one for about 30 seconds only after the flip. Slide the finished pancake out onto a dinner plate. I like to roll up 2-3 at the same time with jelly inside. :)

Enjoy! Viktoria Svensson-Flynn-Hahner( Let me know what you think!

If you're making these for a big family, you can stack them up in an oven proof container or plate and keep them warm in the oven at 250F or so, and cover them with foil if you'd like to keep them from drying out.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Viktoria for this recipe.

These are the pancakes I grew up on, and I raised my children with, and hopefully they'll do the same. My wife never had them before me, now she always wants me to make them.

Thanks for this recipe Viktoria. They're very much like my grandmother used to make. For those were asking, these are meant to be thinner than American pancakes and more like a crepe.

Thanks! This made great, thin pancakes that we had rolled up with raspberry jam.

A line of white sugar with lemon juice drizzled on top has always been my family's favorite way of enjoying these pancakes.

I looking for a different type of pancake recipe and this was a wonderful find. I had never heard of Swedish style pancakes before. When I made these I added a bit more sweetener to the batter and served them with apricot preserves. My husband LOVES them and so do I. This could easily become a family favorite.

This is fantastic. I put a bit of bacon in the middle, drizzled syrup and rolled it up and at it like a taco... so delicious.

Exactly what I was looking for and it turned out wonderfully. IKEA stores actually sell Swedish lingonberry preserves which go great with these pancakes. They also sell a pancake mix, bu nothing beats homemade. Thanks Viktoria

This is a great recipe if you want thin Swedish-style pancakes. The complainers are trying to find thicker American pancakes. Try the Homemade Pancakes recipe on the side of this page under Most Popular Recipe. That's a good one that I've made several times.

I've been making them with white wheat flour and like them better then Ikea's Swedish pancake mix and please use lingon berry preserve to complement the crepes!

I've been making these for two years and my family loves them. Of course they are thin, they are not American pancakes. "tooooo thin to even be pancakes" is a ignorant statement.

Breakfast123: if you want American flapjacks, don't use a Swedish pancake recipe; this one is perfect for what it is meant to produce.

Dear breakfast 123...

Swedish pancakes are thin. They are crepes, just like french crepes. Since they don't have baking powder in them, and not very much flour, this should be obvious. This is a very good, basic recipe for Swedish pancakes/crepes. Try making with whole wheat flour and leave out the sugar, and make a savory filling... Very nice!!

I don't think this recipe should be under the pancake section. The are tooooo thin to even be pancakes. In the title for those of us who don't know, there should be the word THIN as a key word. They were so awful to cook my morning sucked and we wasted our time. I would never do this recipe again.

AWESOME!!! Very nice recipe. Just like I remember as a child. I ate mine with grape jelly rolled inside and cinnamon and warm maple syrup. I'm sure a little whipped cream would be great also!!

They were thin but really soft. I didn't really like them though the taste of salt was prominent. next time I might leave out that ingredient.
