Not quite eggs, pancakes, or biscuits, Finnish Pancakes are most likely the world's most versatile type of brunch food. Whether you decide to serve it topped with Grade B maple syrup (yum!) or serve them with crumbly feta, diced tomato and a chiffonade of basil, these popover -style pancakes hit the spot every time! :)

They are very easy to make and are traditionally cooked in a 9x9 casserole dish. I used muffin tins to make individual servings more accessible! So, check out the ingredients list below and follow my easy step-by-step directions to be on your way to a new family favorite! Enjoy!!!

Ingredients to make 6 individual Finnish Pancakes
-  2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1/2 cup of flour
- 1/8 tsp sugar
- 1 T butter
- Toppings you'd like to try: Soft Cinnamon Apple Slices, Grade B Maple Syrup and Powdered Sugar, Cinnamon and Sugar, Feta with Tomato and Basil, Tomato Sauce and Mozzarella Cheese, Spinach and Bleu Cheese Crumbles

Step 1: Mixing and mixing...

After all the ingredients are ready, we begin by scrambling the eggs in a medium-sized bowl.

Step 2: Add the dry ingredients...

Then you add the 1/8 teaspoon of sugar and 1/2 cup of flour. Carefully mix in the flour using a small spoon or fork (it can get pretty messy).

Step 3: Now the milk...

After the flour and sugar have been mixed into the eggs thoroughly the milk can be added to the mixture. I switch to a whisk at this point to make sure I don't have any hidden clumps in my mixture.

Step 4: The final batter...

The final batter should be on the thinner side, very much like a traditional pancake batter. The batter should be set aside, while the pan is being prepared.

Step 5: Preparing the pan...

Microwave, or melt over heat, the butter until it becomes a liquid. Then disperse the melted butter into the baking pan in equal amounts and swirl the butter around so that it coats the sides and corners of the pan.

Glad you liked it!
Hmm. I'm Finnish but I've never heard of this delicacy. Where did you get the recipe?

Looks awesome and I'll have to try it someday though :)

Really? It's Finnish name is supposedly Pannukakku. The Finnish pancake recipe I inherited was from a New England cookbook and I assume is some type of adaptation on the original recipe.
The ingredients are the same, but the shape is very different. Normally the dough is just poured on a baking tray so the end product is a big square.

Lol. I just wanted to make little individual servings so I wouldn't have to cut it all up. :)

Cool, pancakes in a muffin tin. They look great.

(You should put the picture of the finished pancakes as the intro picture, so that it appears in the thumbnail image.)
