    My dad used to make these for us at home for a special treat. Serve with lingonberries and a sprinkling of icing sugar.

    Will never use pancake mix or make a batter mix again, absolutely delicious light not stodgy. What are lingonberries ? had a couple of cooking apples stewed 'em with raisins and a little sweetener for filling  -  16 Feb 2010


    Made it healthier. Replaced Butter with Flora buttery  -  16 Feb 2010


    Don't really know why I tried this recipe since I am born and raised in sweden and should know my "pannkakor" but I did and it's not quite right. I really like my recipe better wich is basically changing the flour to 1 cup and take away an egg or two depending on size. I also usually substitute 1/3 of the flour to whole wheat flour. We also usually eat our pancakes with strawberry jam or other kind of jam. I make them in a 10 inch pan with low edges with a long spatula I bought at IKEA. Just use your wrist to turn the pan to spread the batter out. If it gets stuck just use som butter on the pan. This recipe can also be used as an oven pancake if you add some fried bacon pieces in an 9x13 bakingpan and bake in the oven at 450 for 25-30 min and serve with lingonberries.  -  10 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
