Swedish Pancakes

Looking for a delicious Swedish pancake recipe? Look no further! Now, remember, Swedish pancakes are different than American pancakes – American pancakes are big and fluffy, and Swedish pancakes are thin.

The technique in making Swedish pancakes takes awhile, but after some practice, you will get it without a problem. The key is making sure the pan is hot enough, and swirling the batter around to make a flat, thin pancake.

Swedish pancake recipes are basically the same. It is the toppings that change. Fresh berries or jam is delicious. And you don’t want to forget the whipped cream! And if you are feeling very daring, you can even add some chocolate 🙂

This Swedish pancake recipe was given to me by a true Norrlander. When they don’t speak much English, you know it is a real Swedish recipe!


  • 1 2/3 c (4dl) flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp ( 9 1/2 g) vanilla sugar (Americans can use vanilla extract)
  • 2 tsp (9 1/2 g) baking powder
  • 3 c (7 dl) milk
  • 1/2 c (1 dl) water
  •  a pinch of salt
  • butter (for frying pan)


1. Mix the dry ingredients from above in a large bowl. If you have a sifter, sift the flour. Otherwise, stir well with a whisk or fork.
2. Add the wet ingredients and mix well.
3. Take a piece of butter and melt it on the frying pan on medium high heat.
4. When the pan is hot, pour in some batter and spread it around the pan.
5. Flip the pancake almost immediately.
6. Add jam or cream in the middle and roll. Serve while hot.

Serving size: 4


Have a Swede make the pancakes for you. Makes the whole process a lot easier 🙂
