Recipe: Blayne’s Swedish Pancakes-A Special Christmas Breakfast
December 14, 2019
Swedish Pancakes are a McAferty family tradition. Blayne's dad always made them for the family when Blayne was growing up, and he continued the tradition with our boys. Blayne prefers to cook them on a round electric skillet so that he can keep the heat evenly distributed. When our boys went away to college, Blayne even found the exact skillet we use at home on Ebay (Farberware) and gifted each boy his own so they could make them at school. We are excited to share our family recipe for our traditional Christmas breakfast (although in our opinion they are delicious anytime). At home, we might make them with just butter and powdered sugar. However, we think that the berries and whipped cream kick it up a notch for guests. Typically we would serve this breakfast with our homemade Greenlake Granola and a side of bacon. This special recipe has also been featured in a few cookbooks and online. Try it at home for yourself and let us know how it turns out! Ingredients: 8 eggs ½ cup sugar 1 cup flour 1 cup milk 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 1 ½ tsp vanilla or almond extract ½ stick of melted butter Directions: Blend first four items in blender on slow speed. Add other items while blender is running. Note: Add melted butter last. Cook on electric frying pan at 325 degrees F on each side until set and very lightly browned (use non-stick spray like Pam). Remove from pan, spread with butter and sifted powdered sugar and roll up. Garnish with powdered sugar, sliced berries, and a little whipped cream if you like. Serves 7-8.
