National Pancake Week ;

i forgot to post pancakes for National Pancake Week,
so im posting a few pictures now.
i honestly dont like pancakes very much... im more of a Waffles kinda gal.
but i DO like french pancakes (Crepes) !
or, well.. in this case " Swedish Pancakes".
My step-father is a swedish man, and he doesnt enjoy pancakes much either,
especially when he has the option of having crepes instead.
hehe.
So a typical Swedish pancake is a thin crepe-like pancake, & instead of adding syrups, fruit, or whipping cream, 
lingon berry Jam is used, with maybe a small scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
Swedish Pancakes
w/ Lingon Berry Jam & Vanilla Ice-cream
Recipe;
- 1 1/2 cup sifted all purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 tbs vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbs melted butter
- spoonful of lingon berry jam
- spoon ful of vanilla icecream
- powdered sugar to sprinkle (optional)
Combine the first 7 ingredients together, it should
be a watery batter. Add a little butter in your large
non-stick pan, (you dont want soggy pancakes)
over medium high heat, & Pour a ladle-full of batter.
Spread your batter by moving your pan in the air
to distribute the batter over the surface area.
Once it starts to crisp, flip it.
(The other side doesnt have to cook for long.)
Once both sides are browned, ENJOY ~
*Makes about 4-5 crepes

*ON A SIDE NOTE
i sent Kevin a container of home-made Chocolate Chip
Pancake Mix (his favorite). All he had to do was add
the liquid ingredients & cook.
Buuuut... he ended up mixing the batter for like 20 mins
to get "rid of the lumps" & ended up melting the chocolate
chips. HAHAHA ! oh hes so funny~
His first attempt at making pancakes !
(during national pancake week nonetheless)
Lets give him a hand!
(i personally think this looks more like a steak..)

  4. Happy Pancake Week. I actually love, love, love pancakes (a bit of a carb-aholic) but I have never made crepes before. I love them but have never ventured to try them, so thanks for sharing this recipe. Maybe a Sunday morning treat?!

  5. Lindsay, you should def. try making crepes.
    i find them easier to make than pancakes, and theyre a lot more fun to decorate & experiment with VS pancakes. (:

  18. How I wish some for breakfast tomorrow..they look luscious!!

    Thanks for visiting me and regarding your question about the spices. I think the Persian market may carry some of the spices but you may not be able find some of the specialized ones..but I would say a trip down to it might be good to see what you can find :)
