Swedish Pancakes

When we spend the night at my mother-in-law's house, our kids beg her to make these crepe-like, Swedish pancakes for breakfast. They're a little lighter than traditional pancakes, so my family can eat a lot! —Susan Johnson, Lyons, Kansas

  • Makes
    20 pancakes

    We loved these. I made as the recipe stated, except, did not use the canola oil. I omitted that and used a little bit of butter in the pan before each pancake. Be sure the pan is hot. They came out perfectly.

    Well, I'm not Swedish, but I do have a bookcase from Ikea, so I think I know Swedish. And, my cousins are half Swedish and they're the snootiest people I know, which helps me understand some of the previous reviews. These pancakes were fantastic! My kids loved them, my wife loved them, and I loved them. The dog, however, did NOT like them. We fried these babies up in no time and topped them with powdered sugar, raspberries, a little lemon juice, whipped cream and even Nutella. What a treat!
