Swedish Pancakes

Somewhere between a pancake and a crepe, Swedish Pancakes make for a lovely breakfast or brunch when stuffed with fresh berries. I like to add flax and chia seeds to the batter for texture and for the extra nutritional punch.

2-4 servings

In a bowl, mix together:
2 eggs
2 ½ cups milk

In a separate bowl, mix together:
1 ¼ cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 Tb chia seeds
1 Tb ground flax seeds

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together lightly to form a thin batter.
Butter for frying
2 cups fresh berries
Maple syrup for serving

Melt a small pat of butter in a skillet until the bubbles subside and add about a 1/2 cup of the batter, turning the pan to spread the batter evenly into a pancake-crepe circle. Cook over medium to medium-high heat until firmly set and the underside is golden brown. Using a spatula (and maybe a helping fork), flip your pancake over and continue to cook for about two minutes until the second side is golden brown.

Remove to a plate, top with berries, fold your pancake over if you like, add a few more berries and top with maple syrup.

Makes about four pancakes.

It’s finally summer and berries are here. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and soon huckleberries.
