Copycat Ihop Swedish Pancakes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ChefOnTheMoon

Some of my best memories of my Grandmother, were in the kitchen. One summer growing up I spent a week with my grandparents and she taught me quite a few recipes. We baked cookies, made candy, pickles and my favorite was Swedish Pancakes. These pancakes were good for any time of day…breakfast, dinner…it didn’t matter! When I came across this recipe for IHOP’s version of this classic, it brought back such good memories that I had to share it with you all. Enjoy !!!

This is exactly the recipe that IHOP uses. I used 2% milk,no cream, used Nucoa no burn margarine in the skillet, trick is to not over cook these crepes. I heated the skillet on high, added about 1/2 tsp. of Nucoa, let that totally melt, then poured batter in and swirled the skillet so that the batter covered the whole bottom of the skillet. The heat is still high at this point, and when you lift up the edges and just see it beginning to brown, thats when I flipped the crepe and turned flame down to medium. Only cooked that side for maybe 30 seconds, then I started rolling it while still in skillet. Served with melted butter, lemon juice and powdered sugar. Delicious!
