Finnish pancakes recipe
I ate a breakfast lunch in bed on Mother's Day. We make Finnish pancakes every Sunday, but it's only on Mother's Day that I get to eat them in bed! Finnish pancakes are very more-ish compared to American pancakes. Another difference is that there is only one actual pancake, which you cut into pieces. Here is the recipe that we use - grabbed off the internet somewhere and then modified a bit. We finish off a doubled recipe of these things every Sunday - it's one of my favorite new traditions we have in our family.
Finnish Pancakes (as made by an American)
Heat oven to 400F (200C)
1 1/4 cups of flour (150g)
1/4 cup of sugar (55g)
1 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups milk
Melt in a 9x13ish (or slightly bigger) pan, in the oven (you can even "accidentally" leave it in there a little too long so it gets nice and brown and crackly):
1/4 cup butter
Remove the butter pan from the oven and pour almost all the melted butter into the ingredients you already combined, then stir or mix thoroughly. Leave enough butter in the pan to act as a nonstick agent.
Pour the batter into the hot buttered pan and bake at 200C for 31 minutes. Check on it frequently near the end - it should be browned and puffy but not burning.
Serve with real whipped cream and fresh berries (or jam).
