Traditionally Swedish people don't eat pancakes for brunch or breakfast , but for lunch or dinner. The pancakes are thin and can be mixed with any type of jam, whipped cream, milk or ice cream.
Actually we have one day a week which is dedicated to pancakes, which is Thursdays. If you go to have lunch at a traditional Swedish lunch place you will most probably find the option of pancakes and pea soup.
Luckily swedes eat more healthy nowadays and pancakes are just enjoyed every now and then.
Today I will give you my grandmothers recipe for pancakes, enjoy!
Mix the eggs, milk, flour and salt, the dough should be very thin. Heat a pan, with some fat such as butter, and poor a small amount (less than 1 dl / 0.4 cups) of the dough into the warm pan. Take the pan and tilt it so the dough can spread by itself. As you can see below the pancake should be very thin.
It will go very fast, turn it around when its golden brown and cook the other side (will take less time)
Put them folded in half on top of each other so they will stay warm until all are finished.
Then its time to eat! This time I took blueberries, blackberries and raspberry jam.
Spread your mix out on the pancake, I aslo put a small amount of milk on top of my pancake. But you can skip that or add whipped cream for extra indulgence ;)
Roll the pancake, and enjoy these thin delicious swedish pancakes!
