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)
My grandparents were Finnish, but they passed before I was born so I never had the chance to taste many Finnish dishes. Was feeling a little sentimental after my mother passed and wanted to taste some authentic Finnish dishes. These are very similar to crepes, so I am not sure what makes them "Finnish", but they were very tastey and easy to make. Served with warmed fruit w/some sugar and maple syrup. Thanks for sharing.
My Finnish friend Maija would be proud. I forgot her recipe but used this and it worked like a charm. I tossed the eggs + milk in the blender and whirled it a bit. Added the dry stuff, whirled. Then the fat, whirl...then let it rest for a few minutes. They cooked and flipped with ease. I didn't roll them-she doesn't. I just served them with some local maple syrup produced from the woods on our road. So glad you have posted this.
Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe FinnKidd. I love thin pancakes and these were perfect. Great flavour and very quick and easy to make. They made a perfect lunch, I can't wait to make these again. The pancake were served with chef #385678 mango pear syrup and were just delicious.
