I was first introduced to this yummy recipe when I started going out with my husband over 30 years ago! We love it for Sunday brunch, with sausage or bacon. It rises in the oven. When you take it out, it falls and has a custard-like consistency! So yummy!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a fantastic way to serve a pancake-like breakfast for a crowd. Quick and easy to prepare, as it bakes this pancake fluffs like a big puff and then deflates. The top and bottom are slightly crisp and holds in a creamy pancake-like filling. The center is almost like a baked custard but a little more sturdy. Top with fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream for a wonderful breakfast. Simple ingredients produce amazing flavor in this pancake recipe.

How To Make pannaukkau (finnish or swedish pancake)

  • Oven preheating to 400 degrees.
    Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Pancake ingredients in a blender.
    Put all ingredients (EXCEPT the butter) into a blender. Blend.
  • Butter in a baking dish in the oven.
    When oven reaches 400, put the butter into a 9x13 pan and put into the oven for the butter to melt.
  • Pancake batter poured into melted butter.
    When the butter is melted, pour the blended ingredients into the pan with the melted butter.
  • Pannaukkau baking in the oven.
    Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. (I like it crispy so I do 40 min). It will puff up while baking then fall when you take it from oven.
  • Pouring syrup over a piece of Pannaukkau.
    I serve it with butter, syrup, fresh fruit, and fresh whipping cream! Very easy and yummy. Enjoy!
