Finnish Pancakes with Strawberries and Cream

These thin dessert pancakes are the only thing my husband knows how to make and he makes them really well. We usually top ours with strawberries, good quality vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.

Finnish Pancakes with Strawberries and Cream

Finnish Pancakes with Strawberries and Cream


For Pancakes:
300 ml or 1 1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
200 ml or 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. melted butter
A pinch of salt
50 ml or 3 tbsp. sugar
Butter or oil for frying

For toppings:
Good quality vanilla ice cream
Fresh strawberries (I sliced them and sprinkled homemade vanilla sugar over them and let stand for a while.)
Whipped cream

But you can use anything you like.


1. Pour the milk into a bowl. Add the flour and salt (and sugar if desired) and mix until smooth.
2. Blend in the eggs and cooled melted butter.
3. Heat the butter or oil in a frying pan and pour in some of the batter. Cook until the pancake is set and the bottom golden brown.
4. Flip the pancake and cook the other side.
5. Put your toppings on and serve.

Thanks Twinkle. Your Nutella ideas sounds yummy, but since it's strawberry season here I'll try them with the fruit first. Thanks for sharing your recipe! :)

They're thicker than crepes but a crepe pan would work. Next time I'm going to put Nutella on it and then fold and top with powdered sugar. :drool:

Is the batter on the thin side? Could they be made in a crepe pan? They look thin and delish! I like your idea of serving Nutella with these, one of my favorites!

Thanks Twink. I tried to make my mom's recipe last summer in Finland but it really didn't work. I don't know if it was because of the flour. Might have been a different kind. And the eggs are different too over there. Tarmo saw your pancakes and begged me to make them. :)

Finn, they sell a good ready mix that we use most of the time. You can find it in Norway too. ;) These are also good with just lemon and sugar. :drool: I'm guessing Nutella would be really good too.
