Swedish Pancakes


Smaller and thinner than their American counterparts, Swedish pancakes are quite tender and comparable in texture to French crepes.

  • Yield: Makes about sixty 3-inch pancakes

  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Confectioners' sugar, for garnish (optional)
  • Fruit, such as raspberries, strawberries, or sliced melon, for garnish (optional)


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine three eggs with 1/2 cup milk. Process until completely smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Stop the food processor, and add 1 cup flour. Process again until smooth and thick, 1 to 2 minutes. Add remaining milk, butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt.

  2. Heat Swedish pancake pan over medium heat. Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of batter into each circle. Cook until the edges turn golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip with a fork, and continue cooking 1 to 2 minutes more.

  3. Serve with jams or maple syrup. Garnish with confectioners' sugar and fruit, if desired.

    Swede here. I'm sorry but this is wrong. Those are pl├Ąttar not pancakes. Pancakes are as big as the pan.

    I saw these being served earlier this month in a tiny Finnish restaurant in southern Spain and the diners spread fruit conserve (jam) over the pancake and aerosol cream over that. They looked delicious and I have been looking for the recipe. Thank you! Eileen.

    Great recipe, but absolutely needs currants or berries, jam or fresh, to balance the butter. And of course unsweetened whipped cream. Delicious and a favorite of my kids, that now prefer these to regular crepes with Nutella!

    Caramelized apples or pears inside I would suggest!

    Maple syrup on Swedish pancakes?? NEVER! Rolled up with a filling of a little jam and unsweetened whipped cream is the way to go.
