Pannkakor – Swedish Pancakes

image_pdfimage_print

What is pannkakor your ask? Its Swedish pancakes. These delicious, creamy pancakes are almost a cross between a custardy pancake and a crepe. Don’t be confused. These are not Norwegian pancakes (pannekakor). Those are thinner and much more like crepes. The Swedish pancake is thicker, soft and creamy inside. And they are so easy to make!

Pannkakor


Lingonberry jam is traditionally served with pannkakor. Sometimes powdered sugar is sifted on top. The jam is not easy to find. I bought mine at Ikea. You could substitute a blueberry or red currant jam, but the flavors are different.

Are you ready for a treat?

Here’s How to Do it:

Melt 1 Tablespoon of the butter and put it in a blender with all the other ingredients. Blend until foamy.

Melt some butter in a heavy skillet, about 1/2 teaspoon, on medium heat. Pour a small puddle of batter into the center and roll the pan around to cover the entire bottom. Cook about 1 to 2 minutes. You’ll see it start to set up.

Carefully lift and turn and cook another minute on the other side.

The pancakes will be soft. I used a 12 inch skillet so the pannkakor are pretty big. Gently roll them

(I cut mine in half at this point) and keep them on a plate in the oven to keep them warm.

Continue cooking using about 1/2 teaspoon of butter for each pancake.

When they are finished, serve with some sugar (granulated or powdered) and some lingonberry jam. You won’t need anything else. These are so good you’ll eat several!!

    These look perfect for a Sunday brunch; I might try them with some of my homegrown/homemade black currant jam. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Helen!

  2. Yum! These pancakes look like something straight out of a dream! I can imagine just how beautiful they tasted. 🙂
    Such a simple recipe, but I guess one has to have practice to get these pancakes perfect.

  3. Hi Helen, this recipe and the photos brought back happy memories for me. My dad was Swedish and LOVED this special pancakes. We always had them with powdered sugar and lingonberry jam (most recently from IKEA). I pinned the recipe for the future, as I would love to make them for my family. #blogginggrandmothers
