Looking for some new breakfast recipes? I am so excited to feature a Swedish pancakes recipe today because I know you will love having it for brunch over this long weekend! This fabulous recipe is shared with us by Nancy Mehagian, author of The Supernatural Kids Cookbook. I really love this 5 ingredient, super easy Swedish pancakes recipe! You might also call this a Swedish crepes recipe as they are really thin pancakes and you can roll them with various fillings.
I also love the idea behind this recipe and her cookbook- “healthy, mindful and tasty recipes created expressly for budding junior chefs to coax them on a lifelong journey of nutritious and delicious culinary exploration & inspiration.” Don’t these Swedish pancakes look amazing?
Easy Swedish Pancake Recipe
These Swedish pancakes, which are really more like crepes, were my favorite when I was a kid and then became my daughter’s favorite. She’s all grown-up now but she still begs me to make them for her. The extra bonus is that this egg-rich batter recipe is high in protein.
Swedish Pancakes Recipe Ingredients
- 1 cup milk
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 6 teaspoons melted butter for cooking
How To Make Swedish Pancakes:
Place the milk, eggs, flour and salt into the blender and blend until smooth.
Melt 1 teaspoon of the butter in a non-stick skillet. When hot, pour 1⁄2 cup of the Swedish pancake batter into the skillet and swirl around until the entire bottom of the skillet is coated.
You could use a crepe pan if you happen to have one. I like to use a nonstick skillet but my husband likes to use the cast iron frying pan which requires more technique and is less forgiving.
Using a spatula, peek under the pancake and when it starts to turn golden, flip the pancake over and cook until the second side is golden.
Continue like this until you have made about 6 pancakes. It’s easy peasy. Then just garnish with your favorite toppings and serve.
Sweet Fillings and Topping Suggestions For Swedish Pancakes:
- Brown sugar with lemon juice
- Maple syrup
- Your favorite fruit jam (lingonberry jam is a classic Swedish choice)
- Fresh fruit (mixed fresh berries are always a favorite)
- Whip cream
- Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar
