Recipe by Bayhill

Posted for the Zaar World Tour-Sweden. From the "Best of International Cooking" cookbook. I haven't tried this recipe yet. These are traditionally served with stewed fruit, lingonberry jam and sour cream.

I loved these crepes. I did reduce the sugar somewhat but otherwise made them as directed. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Preheat a plättar pan or 6-inch cast-iron skillet. Grease cups of plättar pan or grease skillet. Spoon 2 rounded Tablespoons batter into each cup or onto skillet; cook about 1 minute on each side until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with fruit or jam.
  4. Variation: Make 8-inch pancakes. Layer several pancakes with thick lingonberry, bilberry or blackberry jam between them. When cool, frost stack with whipped cream.
