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!

Very easy and fast to make, nice and light. I used 1/4 tsp of salt I may add a pinch more salt next time, but if you were using salted butter it probably won't be necessary. I did grease my nonstick pan with a bit of safflower oil on a paper towel rather than using butter.

These are great Swedish pancakes!! I did add a drop of vanilla as Mirj suggested, but otherwise made them exactly as posted. Topped them with "lingonberry butter" (preserves mixed into butter) and extra lingonberry preserves on the side. These are addictive!! :o)

Guess I did something right, mine turned out just like the photo! Nice and thin, very tasty with warm Cloud Berry sauce from Ikea.

I got a Swedish pancake pan for my birthday was searching for a recipe to make. These were great, I made as directed. The only thing I'd want others to know is to WATCH THE HEAT...they cook VERY quickly and anything above a medium heat setting dooms them to burn. Thanks for posting!
