Swedish Pancakes With Berry-Cardamom Topping

"Recipe from Bon Appétit. These treats are usually served for dessert following the traditional Thursday night dinner of pea soup. Check out my Hearty Split Pea Soup! Recipe #117472. The classic accompaniment is lingonberries; we use a mixture of the more readily available fresh raspberries and blackberries."

    Made these for breakfast today. Used frozen fruit as it is more readily available (and cheaper!). Really more like a crepe than a pancake. I made the batter up last night so getting everything together this morning was a breeze. Delightful.

    Great recipe Rita! I made 2 bacthes of tghis one batch with cardamon and without so I could put a savory filling in the ones without. Both turned out great. I used blueberies and blackberries for the fruit. I actually served these cold for a picnic today and they were just great chilled. Made for ZWT 3!

    These were fantastic! Loved the cardamom. I lazily blitzed all the pancake ingedients except the melted butter in one shot and then added the butter at the end. I let the batter sit for a few hours. This is a terrific dessert that satisfies without being to rich or heavy. Thanks! Made for ZWT3.

    Delicious - I used about one cup of flour and only used raspberries for the topping. I also used a mixer instead of the food processor (less cleanup). Thanks for sharing this keeper--we'll be having these often (especially in the summer when berries are a bit cheaper but I think these will also work well with frozen berries.
