Norwegians like their pancakes served hot with butter and jelly, or butter and sugar.


  1. Beat together the eggs and sugar.
  2. Add the milk and salt, and then the flour, mixing until smooth.
  3. Let the batter rest for 20 minutes.
  4. Butter a very hot skillet lightly.
  5. Laddle 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter into the skillet, and tilt it around so the batter spreads out to make a 7 inch diameter pancake.
  6. The batter will firm up quickly.
  7. When the first side is brown, turn and brown the other side.

These are the best recipe I've found for thing pancakes, they're delicious, easy to make and perfect with lemon and sugar. It is important to let the batter rest for that 20 minutes. Super easy, I've made these 20+ times over the past two years, never found a better recipe.

This recipe is not for pan cakes, it is a crepe recipe, and not a good one of those. Far too much milk in it. Hard to cook, and not very tasty done.

As a little girl, I remember when I stayed at my Norwegian grandmother's house ( we called her Bestemor, which is grandmother in Norwegian) and I loved when she made me Norwegian pancakes for breakfast. I recall sitting at her kitchen table in my pajamas ,in her pretty little kitchen that always had crisp white cotton curtains, anticipating her delicious pancakes. She would place the pancake on my plate and I would then take a pat of butter, melt it over the pancake, sprinkle on some sugar, roll up the pancake, and then taking my fork and knife enjoy my favorite dish Bestemor would make. Bestemor passed away many, many years ago, but when I used this recipe this morning and feed my family of 5, I felt like I was getting a hug from my grandmother....priceless. I am not sure if she used vanilla in hers, I will ask my mother, but my family loved this recipe. My son said he could sit here all day and eat them. So I guess I will continue the yummy memories. I was able to get around 24 pancakes from this. I had considered doubling the recipe at first and am glad I didn't. Hope you try this and enjoy!
