Swedish Pancakes

Supplies

Instructions

  1. Beat eggs with 1/2 cup milk in a large bowl. Beat until frothy or bubbly.
  2. In a seperate medium size bowl, mix flour, salt, and baking powder.
  3. Add dry ingredients to egg mixture and beat until smooth. The batter will be thick and heavy.
  4. Add the rest of the milk and melted butter and beat until smooth. The batter should be pretty thin. If your batter is still heavy and lumpy, you may need to add more milk.
  5. Heat the griddle or skillet. You'll know it's hot enough if you sprinkle a few drops of water of it and the drops sizzle and bounce around.
  6. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle or skillet.
  7. Cook until the edges brown and then turn to cook the other side.
  8. When done, fold in half and place on a serving dish or platter. TIP: To keep your pancakes warm while you are cooking the rest of the batter, set the oven to 200°F and keep them in the oven until ready to serve.
  9. Serve with lemon wedges and powder sugar, fruit preserves, sour cream, or syrup.
