Sunday Breakfast - Finnish Pancakes

I was stumbling early this morning and found a recipe for Finnish Pancakes; Aleta got the recipe from the Massachusetts Poultry Association, Inc.

Finnish Pancakes
4 tbsp butter, melted
4 eggs
2 c milk
1/2 c flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 450oF, and pour the melted butter into a 9″x13″ baking pan. (I put the butter in the baking dish while the oven preheated) and took the pan out when the butter had melted and was slightly bubbly)

I whisked the eggs until well-blended and then whisked in the milk, flour, sugar and salt with the eggs. I poured the mixture into the pan with butter making sure to get the floury bits at the bottom of the mixing bowl into the pan. I baked it for 20 minutes. The edges were nicely browned and the top was light golden. The pancake puffed up quite a bit in the oven and then deflated when taken out.

I cut the pancake into four and served each piece with thinly sliced granny smith apple pieces dipped in lemon and sprinkled lightly with cinnamon sugar and then generously drizzled maple syrup over it all.

This was delicious - very light souffle, eggy like confection. Very easy to make too.

I love these pancakes. Here in Seattle, we call them German pancakes, and they are considered a real treat. I like apples on mine too, but just the addition of powdered sugar and lemon is pretty yummy too.
