    LiisaN's Note:

    My Mom used to make this as a special breakfast treat when we had company or for holidays. It is a baked pancake/custard. I like it with syrup and sausages served on the side. The Finns would often serve with jam or fruit preserves and of course coffee.

      Desperate for a finnish oven pancake recipe that would finally work, i turned in desperation to this site. I found pannu kakku without much difficulty and made it for my family for supper. I had a friend over and she said she had never tasted anything quite like it before. I also had the problem with the liquidy pooling and there is no reason to haveto use paper towel simply: take a large serving spoon and stir about 20 minutes through cooking. This ensures even cooking heat throughout and helps the cooked custard on the bootom to rise and allow milk mixture to cook. Hope this helps and so many thanks to Liisa N. This recipe saved me!

      Made this for the first time this morning. Followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfect! I took another reviewer's advice and stirred it after it had been in the oven for 10 minutes. I then let it sit for approximately 10 - 15 minutes after it was done baking before cutting into it. Served it with syrup and strawberries. Would probably make an excellent dessert with fresh berries and whipped cream too!

      I made this for my daughter's Finnish country report today. Instead of adding melted butter to the mix, I melted it in the pan in the oven and poured the mix into it and baked it for 45 minutes because of the other reviews regarding runniness. It came out perfect. I did not get to taste it until after class so it was not hot. However, even cold it was yummy. I served with lemon wedges & powdered sugar, or strawberry jam, or maple syrup. I had mine with lemon & sugar - OH YUM! Thank you, this is going to be made more often at our house.
