Recipe by Grandma Kay

Once you get a taste for these, you're going to want them. You're going to want them a LOT. Kids really go for them. Serve these with Lingonberry preserves, they taste really scrumptious!

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.
