An old family recipe for crepe-like Swedish pancakes.
- 1 1⁄2 cups white flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- 1 pinch cardamom
- 1 pinch ginger
- 3 eggs
- 3 cups milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Beat eggs, add milk and vanilla.
- Add liquid to to dry mixture slowly, stirring well to remove all lumps.
- Heat a small frying pan over medium heat.
- Butter the pan before each pancake is made.
- Only pour enough batter to coat the bottom of the pan (1/4 to 1/2 cup will do it).
I've made swedish pancakes many times and I used this recipe this time for making the pancake batter (I never tried it with all the spices). One step that is needed is to let the batter rest until the gluten forms or the pancakes will fall apart. It takes a couple hours for that to happen and I like to let it rest overnight.
Excellent recipe! Just like I remember my Swedish grandmother making them only better because the addition of spices. I let the batter rest for an hour and they were still spectacular.
my daughter and friend had to do a report on sweden, then they had to make a food from sweden. Their class loved them.
