My Grandmother and Aunts used to work at the Hoito as they were all Finish and lived down the street. Here's my Grandma's recipe I got out of her hand written recipe book. She once told me that the Hoito uses her Mom's recipe for pancakes. <br/><br/>4 eggs<br/>2 cups Milk<br/>1 Cup Flour<br/>1 pinch baking soda<br/>1/2 tsp salt<br/><br/>Throw it all in a blender and combine it all. Let it rest 1/2 hour or whatever.<br/><br/>I've never added butter to the batter but would try. I also add 1 tsp vanilla, and a little bit of sugar. <br/><br/>I like to melt 1/2 a cup of butter so that when you're frying your pancakes you have already melted butter and don't have to wait for it to melt each time. Also I think it's important to use a cast iron pan. I usually set up 2 and whip out pancakes.
