Swedish Pancakes Recipe

My grandmother’s Swedish pancakes recipe brings back so many memories of my childhood

Swedish Frying Pan

As a youngster, I always called them Finnish pancakes, because my grandparents came from Finland… and our family made these pancakes a lot. This recipe was my grandmother’s originally.

What brought this childhood favorite back to mind was a need we had last year for a soft foods diet and I happened across a box of Lunds Swedish Pancake Mix at the health food store. We tried it – and it was really good, almost as good as the pancakes my sister and I used to make when we were kids.

Well… I didn’t have a Swedish pancake pan, so I remedied that error with a quick visit to Amazon.com.

My grandmother used syrup or strawberries, rather than lingonberries on her pancakes, so that part of the Swedish Pancake tradition passed us by (probably because we weren’t Swedish).

These pancakes are easy to make from scratch. My sister and I were middle-school-age when we learned to make them. And how we loved these little treats for breakfast (or lunch, or supper).

Here’s our family recipe, if you’d like to give them a try.
