Swedish pancake recipe

Scrumptious Swedish Pancakes Recipe

My entire family loves this Swedish pancakes recipe! I especially love it because it’s such an easy recipe to make. These Swedish pancakes are a thin and delicious pancake, much like a crepe, but not so complicated to handle.

These have become a repeat item on our weekly menu and are even requested a couple of other days during the week. Definitely a pancake recipe you’ve got to try!

Cooking Your Swedish Pancakes

We pull out our large skillet (like this one) and cook 8 Swedish pancakes at a time. This recipe makes enough for our family of 9 (each person can easily eat 4-6 because they are so thin). So if you have a smaller family, you may want to only mix up half the batch.

However, do not be afraid to make extras as I often double the recipe to have some left over for the kids since they are always such a big hit. Plus, it’s always convenient to have a hearty breakfast that can be quickly reheated to start their day off right.

If you prefer to cook them fresh you could prepare the batter the night before so you can just give it a good stir in the morning before putting them on the griddle since they only take a few minutes to cook.

Caramel syrup recipe

Caramel Syrup Recipe

My favorite way to top these Swedish pancakes is with this Caramel Syrup from one of my favorite cookbooks, Our Best Bites.

Trust me, you’ll LOVE this syrup! I gave some to a friend and she and her family put a little in their oatmeal each morning (great idea for using the leftovers!).

If you love the Caramel Syrup Recipe, definitely check out the Our Best Bites cookbook (kindle version here). You can also check out their other cookbook, Savoring the Seasons.

Serving Your Swedish Pancakes

Like I said above, my favorite way to top these pancakes is with the caramel syrup recipe foud below. However, you can also top them with a tasty jam or fresh fruit. Also, make sure to serve them with a nice refreshing beverage, like a glass of milk!

Do you have any traditional meals that you make each week?

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 9
Adjust Servings: 9


  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 TBSP melted butter

Caramel Syrup:

  • ¾ cup buttermilk Now I never have buttermilk on hand, so I use this substitution: Put 3/4 of a Tablespoon of white vinegar in a 1 cup measuring cup, then fill to 3/4 full with milk... let it sit for 5 minutes and then you're good to go!
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • ½ cup real butter
  • 2 TBSP corn syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Stir all dry ingredients and then add the eggs, milk, vanilla, and melted butter.
  • Mix it well (it can be lumpy... I mixed it for quite awhile in my KitchenAid and now I just mix it up in my BlendTec).
  • Cook on a hot griddle or skillet (we set ours at 340 degrees).
  • Half my family loves to put our homemade jam on top (see my homemade freezer jam recipe) and the other half LOVE this easy and delicious Caramel Syrup recipe that I got out of one of my favorite cookbooks, Our Best Bites!

Caramel Syrup:

  • Combine "buttermilk", sugar, butter, corn syrup, and baking soda in a 4 quart pot.
  • Bring mixture to a boil and reduce heat to low (just make sure it's still bubbling).
  • Cook, stirring very frequently, for 7-9 minutes or until the syrup reaches a rich golden brown.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

  • Oh my, these are so good–especially that carmel sauce. My family is always trying out new pancake recipes so I made these this morning. Every one loved them and hubby had (at least) three stacks! Hubby and kids also requested sliced apples to dip in the carmel while they waited for each batch of hot pancakes. Delish! THX for sharing the recipe!
