Recipe by Chef Mommie

Swedish pancakes are one of Sweden's best-known food exports. Served with sprinkled sugar, Preserves and sour cream, they are traditionally eaten as a dessert on Thursdays with yellow pea soup. Swedish pancakes are essentially a crepe, eaten sweet for breakfast or dessert or savory for supper with assorted fillings. They may be made the size of a crepe or a silver dollar.

This was a terrific recipe! We had these for dessert, filled with strawberry compote and topped with whipped cream. The crepes were light and thin, but sturdy enough to roll. Excellent recipe!! Made for ZWT 3:)
