"My Norwegian grandmother made this for us as a treat, and it continues to be a favorite my mother makes for my kids. Very easy and versatile. Serve rolled like a crepe with syrup or jam. Can also be a dessert stuffed with a sweetened cream cheese and lingon berry mixture."

  1. Combine the eggs and milk in the container of a blender. Add the flour, salt and sugar, and blend until smooth.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray or butter. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet, and tilt the pan to coat the bottom. Cook until the top looks dry, about 30 seconds. Carefully slide a spatula under the pancake and flip. Cook for a few seconds on the other side, just until browned. Remove to a plate, and repeat with remaining batter.

Its great to see online a recipe my Norwegian grandmother has taught me years ago to make, and I have had many times in Norway. Although, there are a few differences. I guess back in the day it was easier to say 1 egg to 1tbsp sugar to 1 cup milk to 1 cup flour. never heard of salt going in. And one major Norwegian recipe not included here was Cardamom. All Norske's as far as I know put a heavy sprinkling of cardamom in the mix. And all norskes roll this with strawberry jelly. Jordbear. Oh yeah, they call it tinnepannekakke (thin pancake). Here in the US we add some cinnamon and vanilla, but it's not neccessary.


Well, despite his skepticism about *Norwegian* pancakes being anything like crepes, my boyfriend was promptly enthused by these. He thinks they are very excellent and can't wait for me to make these again. I, too, thought them to be very tasty. They were very easy to make(of course, you needed to overlook my inexperience at the flipping of them). I added a dash of vanilla to the mix and then we smothered them with whipped brown sugar and cinnamon cream cheese, drizzled some maple syrup on the top, and sprinkled with powder sugar. Great! Thanks!


These are very good. My very Norwegian family has enjoyed Norwegian pancakes for generations. My Grandfather has loved to make these for us over the years. This recipe is just like his, except it doesn't have cardamom. So, I just added some cardamom to the mix and presto...there you have it! I eat these rolled with butter and powdered sugar, topped with homemade lingonberry sauce or with freshly cut strawberries. Absolutely wonderful!
