These are thin pancakes. Trust the process-batter is very thin and runny! We always roll them up into little logs to serve with toppings or stuff rolled inside. It's fun for the kids to pick their own toppings. They 'keep' well, and it doesn't hurt the quality to collect them on a dish in the oven while you cook the whole batch so everyone can eat together. Save the leftovers, they microwave great!

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 8 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 23 cup butter, melted
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup flour, sifted
  • Optional Toppings

  • 1 cup strawberry, sliced (optional)
  • 1 cup lingonberry (optional)
  • whipped cream (optional)
  • maple syrup (optional)

Directions

  1. Beat eggs. Add in milk and butter, stir well.
  2. Sift together salt and sugar with flour. Add dry to wet ingredients, slowly. Don't over-beat. This is a thin and runny batter.
  3. Cook up on a lightly greased griddle until golden brown on both sides. This doesn't take very long so watch it.
  4. I use 1/4 cup batter in a 9 inch sauté pan.

After having Swedish Pancakes at IKEA yesterday I was craving them this morning so I went on a hunt for a recipe. Yours was the 5th one I found and it had 5 stars unlike others so I went for it. I am glad I did! Your Gammas recipe is awesome. My whole family loves them, even my boyfriend who doesn't care much for pancakes. I put Ligonberry jam on top, next time I'll try strawberries and chocolate sauce. I posted a photo so you can see how yummy they look. I will be making these again and again. Thank you for sharing!

These were the best I've made & I've tried many recipes. I do suggest bringing milk to room temperature (I warm in the microwave) so the butter doesn't curdle back up from the cold milk. We filled with strawberries that had been sliced and sprinkled with a bit of sugar to make a juice, and real maple syrup. <br/><br/>We also like them a little thicker so I did a slightly heaping cup of flour.<br/><br/>Thanks for the recipe, it is a forever keeper!!

These were wonderful. I had a problem with the batter...it was very lumpy and the first pancake turned out weird...so I dumped the bowl into my food processor and gave it a whirl. Perfect smooth batter and the rest of the pancakes turned out great. We tried these stuffed with a sweetened cream cheese mixture like crepes, but I liked them better with just some sugared strawberries and sour cream topping.
