Pannu Kakku (Finnish Oven Pancake)

An eggy, buttery, oven pancake. This looks so good, I can't wait to try it. Putting the recipe hear for safe keeping. I got it off Erin's kitchen blog. Hope she doesn't mind. Update: Finally got to make this deliciously ooey, gooey pancake. I also added a dash of vanilla and would also recomend decreasing the butter to about 6 tbs from 8. I also preheated the oven to 400 degrees to melt the butter and then decreased the temp to 350 when I put the batter in. Oh so yummy! I will update the ingredients below so that the nutritional information is correct.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in oven in a 9x13 pan; should be sizzling when you take it out.
  3. Meanwhile, mix other ingredients like hell - till very frothy. Pour batter into pan with melted butter.
  4. Bake 40 minutes. Eat immediately.

This is THE Finnish recipe for pannukakku. Granny came from Finland and it was hard to talk with her because she didn't learn english language. But this is THE recipe from her country.

This was too sweet. I even used about 2/3 c of Splenda ad 1/3 c of sugar. I liked the edges because they tasted like a marshmallow, but the surving size was too much. Maybe it should be cut down to 12 servings for this recipe.

This is delicious and fabulously easy! I have tried other Pannu Kakku recipes and they have not turned out like this. The secret may be in melting the butter in the pan. My children ask for it every weekend. It is a perfect brunch item. One 9x13 pan (glass) is about enough for 4-6 people with big servings. I add a dash of vanilla, too. I also serve it with a dusting of powdered sugar and no syrup.
