Swedish Pancakes Recipe

When we spend the night at my mother-in-law's house, our kids beg her to make these crepe-like pancakes for breakfast. They're a little lighter than traditional pancakes, so my family can eat a lot! —Susan Johnson, Lyons, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Lingonberries or raspberries
  • Seedless raspberry jam or fruit spread, warmed
  • Whipped topping


  • 1. In a blender, combine the first six ingredients. Cover and process until blended. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet; pour 1/4 cup batter into center. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer.
  • 2. Repeat with remaining batter, adding oil to skillet as needed. Stack pancakes with waxed paper or paper towels in between. Reheat in the microwave if desired.
  • 3. Fold pancakes into quarters; serve with berries, raspberry jam and whipped topping. Yield: 20 pancakes.

"I have not tried this receipe for Swedish Pancakes. Swedish pancakes are NEVER made with oil always melted butter. Since I am Swedish and my parents were born in Swedish and my oldest daughter lives in Sweden I will continue to make my mother's recipe for Swedish pancakes. I wouldn't even want to try this recipe."

"I've used a similar recipe that we make a big batch, then freeze. they are great that way too.

Another way to serve is with peanut butter, or with butter and brown sugar."

"This is a question, not a comment. Can these be frozen? How are they after they are frozen?"

"Mix/whip cream cheese and butter or margarine together and spread on pancakes. Then add a dollup of cherry, apple, or blackberry pie filling and roll up like a blitz or do the fold over thing. Sprinkle rollup with powder sugar. Place side by side in rows on serving platter for a beautiful addition to a tasty brunch."
