Uncle Don's Swedish Pancakes

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 20 mins

A recipe from my husband's family we have quite often. Swedish pancakes are thin, more like a crepe than an american pancake. We usually roll these and drizzle maple syrup over or fill with lingonberries or raspberry jam.


  1. Blend all ingredients until smooth.
  2. The batter will be thin.
  3. Lightly butter a heavy 8 inch skillet and heat on medium-low till a drop of water sizzles.
  4. Pour 3 tablespoons of batter into the skillet, tilting the skillet to coat the bottom.
  5. When surface of the pancake bubbles, after about 30 seconds, turn quickly and cook another 15 seconds or so till lightly brown.
  6. Add more butter to the skillet as needed to prevent sticking.

I originally tagged this for a game intending to make them later in the week as a treat. But dinner came around and I had no idea what to make. So I made some creamed chicken and vegetables and made these pancakes, reducing the sugar to 2 tbsp. I wrapped the chicken in the pancakes and we had a quick and easy meal. Thanks! I had some leftovers so I put nutella in some and with a few we put them in bowls and then put ice cream in them. Yum.

I really liked these, but i love thin pancakes, i make crepe batter instead of pancake batter anyway. These were just perfect with butter and syrup for me.
