- Ready In:
- Mix everything in a blender.
- **You make these like a crepe but cook both sides. I'm not very good at it so my directions may not be right on -- I'm writing this from past observation -- I use a crepe maker and only cook one side.**.
- Fill a large pot halfway with water and set to simmer. Place a heat proof plate on top of the pot -- You can stack the pancakes on it to keep them warm as you're making more.
- Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Grease it lightly with butter.
- Pour a small amount of batter (tablespoon or 2) in the center of the skillet and tilt it in a circular pattern so that it coats the whole bottom in a very thin layer, like a crepe.
- Cook it until solid and flip it over. It should be lightly browned on each side. Stack them on the warmed plate.
- To serve them you fold them into thirds and put toppings over them. Or you can fill them like a crepe.
- I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! I wish I had the knack for making them.

I can't thank you enough for posting this. Long story short, my mother passed her swedes recipe to me while deep in the battle with brain cancer. When I tried to make them they were never quite right. When I saw your description about how some would say they aren't technically Swedes , i had a hunch that your recipe may be similar to the one my Norwegian family used. They turned out perfect! I am so excited to be able to share this treat from my childhood with my kids. Thank you for sharing!
I made these in response to my 8-year-old's request for thinner pancakes (like the King's Cakes at Le Peep - not quite crepes, but much thinner than regular pancakes). She was absolutely thrilled with them, and the rest of the family loved them too. I served them with homemade brown sugar syrup. For mine, I put some butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon on one half, folded it over, and topped with a little syrup. Heaven! This is going in my recipe book right away, and I seriously doubt I will make any other kind again. Thank you so much!
I agree with a previous review, the word for these is YUM :) This was my first atempt at making my own crepes and i'd say it was a success thanks to this recipe, i loved them even just right out of the pan with nothing on them. I did make a sour cream and brown sugar sauce, and put that on along with some fresh strawberries, and they were very good! i would probably in the future use just a few Tb butter in the batter, and cook it in the rest of the butter, frying it in the butter really adds to the over all taste :) Thanks for this great recipe!
YUM! Made these this morning YUM! We have tried a few Swedish pancake recipes and this is the one! YUM! We tweaked it just little by adding more sugar using a Â¼ cup and a generous teaspoon of vanilla. YUM! We served them with lingonberries YUM! They were the best. YUM! Thank you so much for the best Swedish pancake recipe I have tasted. YUM!
