Swedish Pancakes

Swedish Pancakes (Svenska Pannkakor)


Everyone loves Swedish pancakes, and here is an easy recipe. You can serve it with jam, or if there’s a special occasion, ice cream! This recipe serves about 4 people but I usually double it and freeze the leftovers and serve to my kids at a later date.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups flour (not self-raising)
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons of butter (and some extra for frying)


1. Mix eggs, flour and salt.
2. Add the milk, a little at the time, and whisk to a smooth batter. The batter will be very thin (almost like for crêpes).

3. Melt the butter in a skillet, then add to the batter.

4. The best way to cook the pancakes is in special pancake cast iron skillet, but if you don’t have one, a smaller skillet works just as well. In a hot skillet, add some butter, and make sure the skillet is covered with it.

5. Add enough batter to cover the bottom (turn the skillet around to spread the batter).
