Swedish Pancake (Pannkakor) Recipe

Swedish pancake
Swedish pancake is quite similar to the French crêpes. It is usually eaten on Thursday following a meal of pea soup. The pancakes are often served with jam and whipped cream. Personally I also like it with savoury accompaniments. In the past I have eaten it with chicken, eggs, cheese, ham and sautéed lentils.  It was delicious everytime. The pancakes are very slightly sweet so it goes well with both sweet or savoury accompaniments.

The pancakes are almost always round but those in the photos don't look very round. I can assure you, they still taste delicious.
