Everyone in my family absolutely adores Swedish pancakes. There are many choices for what to serve them with- They are excellent served warm, sprinkled with sugar and topped with lingonberry preserves. When I was in Sweden, it was popular for the children to top them with a rainbow sherbet. My brothers and sisters like the old fashioned American way of using maple syrup. Personally, I like them best either topped with raspberry or strawberry preserves, or applesauce!

I tried another recipe before trying this one and ended up with scrambled eggs so iwas very nervous to give it a shot again. I wish I had found this recipe the first time. By mixing only half of the wet ingredients first, it makes it easier to get any lumps out of your batter. I do highly recommend slowly sifting in the flour for the best results. I didn't make any adjustments in the recipe. We have a restaurant here where they give ever person one Swedish pancake before their meal. My eight year old son thought these were even better than the ones at the restaurant. This recipe will definitely become a family favorite. We topped ours with lingonberry preserves.

OK. It's good but not a pancake, a very watery batter and a crepe. Didn't want a crepe. I fixed it with another cup of flour and 3 tsps. Baking powder. And they were very good. Now I gotta think what to do with the dozen more pancakes left to make.
