Dad's Special Recipe (Finnish Style Pancakes)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by FinnKidd

They're thin but filling. These are designed to be rolled once cooked. But first your toppings such as jams, syrups, and such are spread. These can be made the night before. The batter just needs to be stirred first.

I'm giving these 5 stars because they were good as is -- but, when I took out the baking powder, they were perfect... for me. They were exactly like the Hoito finnish pancakes I grew up eating in Thunder Bay (the "copy-cat Hoito finnish pancake" recipe was a distant 2nd imo, but you can be the judge)
