The Swedish answer to crepes!

Tunn meaning flat, and pannkaka meaning (wait for it) pancakes, tunnpannkaka are thin, unleavened, breakfast treats that I've been eating since childhood and cooking nearly as long. They are tasty and simple, although there's a bit of skill to be gained in the pour. You will see what I mean.

The entire ingredient list is this:

4 eggs
2-1/2 cups milk
1-1/2 cups flour
cooking oil

Beat the eggs, beat in the milk, beat in the flour. You should have a fairly thin batter, a bit thicker than whipping cream, without many lumps (but some lumps are OK).

That is all. Now the fun part!

Step 2: Pre-heat

Heat up your stovetop to a fairly high heat. On my electric I use 7 (of 10). Get out a big frying pan and let it heat up. Pour about a tablespoon of oil in and let that heat up. The oil should be hot enough to just barely start to smoke. A tiny drop of water should explode immediately, no skittering around sizzling. The oil should run about the pan at nearly the consistency of water. When these things are happening, you are ready to cook.

Note that the temperature required to cook tunnpannkaka is too hot for butter, you do need to use oil - corn, canola, safflower, etc (olive oil would work but the taste is wrong for this dish).

Step 3: Pour

Set your batter nearby and get a half cup measuring cup (a third cup also works, especially if your pan is small). I put it on a plate so it doesn't fall completely into the batter.

Scoop up a little less than a cupful. Holding the pan in your left hand, pour the batter quickly into the middle. Rotate the pan so the batter runs around and you get a circular pancake, more or less.


Step 4: Flip

Let the tunnpannkaka cook for about a minute and a quarter. You can tell it's ready to turn when the edges start to get brown. Slide a spatula or pancake turner around the edges to loosen it, then flip the whole thing over in one smooth motion.
