Serve these delicate pancakes as the Swedes do, as a light dessert following pea soup for Thursday dinner, accompanied with lingonberry preserves.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


Lightly grease a plattar pan, pancake griddle, or frying pan. Preheat pan over medium-high burner until a drop of water sizzles on the surface.

Beat the eggs, then mix in sugar, milk, flour, salt, and vanilla extract to make a thin batter.

Pour the batter by tablespoons into the wells of the plattar pan or on to your griddle. Fry until golden, flipping once.

Serve with whipped or sour cream and lingonberry preserves.

Yield: 50 Swedish Dessert Pancakes
