This recipe is so delicious and easy to make. I come from a really Swedish town - Rockford, Illinois - where Swedish pancakes are a favorite for Sunday morning breakfast. My Dad used to make these for us at home for a special treat. Serve with butter and maple syrup, or lingonberries if you've got them.
I made this recipe using vegan butter and lactose-free milk. the consistency was liquidy (as I've heard it's suppose to be). I used a little vegan butter on the pan and for 2 servings I used just 1 egg white. The Pancake cooked fast and flipping it was no trouble. The taste, texture, and thiness are fantastic for any dairy allergens this recipe is perfect.
Not my preferred variation Swedish pancakes but they turned out ok and would probably pair well with lingon och powdered sugar. I felt the recipe could use butter within the mix and that these turned out a bit on the hard side rather than soft.
This recipe is very similar to the one my Mormor taught my mom, and I've been making these now for a little over 50 years! This calls for one less egg, a little more flour, half the sugar---but it's basically the same. I tried to make it with just one tablespoon batter on my cast iron griddle, but I had better luck with two tablespoons. I've never used butter on the griddle, so it took me a little getting used to (I usually give a very light brushover of Crisco). My granddaughters thought these were a little more "cushiony" but still very good (they passed the big test!!)! Powdered sugar, granulated sugar, or lingonberry jam are the traditional ways I know of how to serve Swedish pancakes, but we still prefer a little jam with sour cream in the middle with a smidgen of syrup on the rolled up top! My four Swedish grandparents would be proud that their tradition has carried on! Thanks for posting your recipe, Amber!
I liked it but hubby did't. Said they didn't look done. Going to try it again with a bit more cooking, flour & salt &1/2 tsp vanilla. I made them into crepes with apple pie filling from a can and jazzed it up with more pie spices. Makes lovely crepes, just not a "man's" dish apparently.
These sweet and fluffy crepes are a big hit in my home!
