I love Swedish Pancakes because I hate traditional restaurant style American pancakes. Those thick and fluffy pancakes that are so thick that the inside of the pancake doesn’t absorb the syrup. The insides are then dry. I always order the silver dollar pancakes whenever I eat out for pancakes. At least those are a little thinner. Whenever I make pancakes, I usually add more milk to the batter to get a thinner pancake, which is usually halfway in between a crepe and an American pancake.
Swedish pancakes don’t have any leavening, which leads to their thin and flat appearance. They are only slightly thicker than a crepe. Instead of syrup, enjoy them the way the Swedes do, with lingonberry jam.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the Swedish exploration this week!
