How to make Finnish Oven Pancakes
3 things to be aware of: (1) Where it says “whisk” after using the electric mixer… use a whisk, not the mixer. (2) Be careful how you pour the batter into the frying pan. The pan is hot and some of the batter could stick on the sides if you don’t pour carefully. (3) When you place the pan in the oven (middle rack), try not to tip it too much. It’ll send the batter up the sides and you’ll have a lop-sided pancake, like I did.
