Sunday Morning Swedish Pancakes

This is a funny title, because I am a descendant of a Swedish grandmother, so I should be a pro on Swedish treats. I am not. This is not even a 'family' recipe.

One day I stopped by a friend's house and she was just finishing up breakfast, and it smelled divine! She threw a couple pancakes on a plate for me to try (I used syrup, but my we usually use Lignonberry jelly on them too) and they just melted in my mouth! I love breakfast food, so this quickly became a staple in my kitchen.

Now my family usually makes them on Sunday mornings. (But we have been known to make them for dinner when we are needing pure comfort food).
I am trying to teach my boys how to make them, so they can enjoy them whenever they want.

Here is the recipe:

4 eggs, well beaten
pinch of salt
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup of flour
1 cup of milk
1/3 cup melted butter

Beat the eggs so they are nice and bubbly
melt the butter and let it sit aside for just a minute so it isn't too hot
 whisk in everything but the butter, making sure it isall mixed nicely
once mixed well, whisk in the butter
it may appear to have small clumps- that's okay.
Some of the eggs may set when in contact with the hot butter that you add.

Using about 1/4 cup of mix, make a circle on a hot griddle

Fret not if the first one falls apart...these are buttery and thin, and if the grill isn't hot
or greasy enough yet you may have a mishap....

Save it anyway, it will still taste yummy.

Roll onto a plate, and use any jelly or syrup of choice.
We always sprinkle with powdered sugar (sometimes that is sweet enough for some people)

Side note:
I save my old Parmesan Cheese bottles to use for powdered sugar-
these work better than any sprinkler I have ever bought

You don't need to butter, these-
just roll up, fix up, and enjoy

Makes 12-15 pancakes, depending on size-
so if you are cooking for more than 3 or 4 people you may want to double

Yum. I will try these, esp. because whenever I am off work, I seem to be on breakfast detail for EVERYONE.
