Swedish Pancakes. This recipe is so delicious and easy to make. I come from a really Swedish town - Rockford, Illinois - where Swedish pancakes are a favorite for Sunday morning breakfast. My Dad used to make these for us at home for a special treat.
Swedish pancakes are made from a thin, egg-rich batter that's cooked in a skillet to produce thin cakes that are rolled up or folded. While they look a whole lot like French crêpes, there are slight differences that make each unique. The batter for Swedish pancakes contains a higher ratio of milk, butter, and eggs to flour, resulting in something that's lighter and fluffier than crêpes. You can have Swedish Pancakes using 6 ingredients and 7 steps. Here is how you cook it.
