This is a very difficult recipe to make. The batter is very runny. I used a crepe pan and try as I might, I could not turn these things. And cooking on one side didn't work either! I varied a number of elements trying to make this recipe work but to no avail. We are living in Sweden and my daughter loves the pancakes here. She suggested that I not try this recipe again.
Sue, these were delicious! The batter is very easy to prepare, and the pancakes were easy to cook. Very light, eggy, with a just a hint of sweetness. I started off making them with just 1 tbsp batter as you suggest, but then began to make them slightly bigger -- simple impatience on my part. Other than that variance, I followed the recipe to the letter. I will definitely make these again; thanks for posting the recipe!
These were lovely! I was tempted to automatically triple the ingredients, this made just enough to feed half my ravenous pancake-lovers, but I decided to try out the recipe the way Sue wrote it. Good thing I did, since I added a drop of vanilla to the next batch and it made all the difference in the world to us! Sue, you are right, we are going to want these A LOT. No Lingonberry jam (next time my cousin from Sweden comes to visit guess what she brings), but we used some great orange marmalade on top. Thanks Sue!
