  • That’s the most complicated recipe I’ve ever seen for ‘pannekaker’. This is my family’s recipe: 2 eggs, 5dl milk, 4-5dl flour(4.5 is what I usually use), 2-3 spoons of sugar(may replace with 1ts of salt if you don’t want sweet pancakes).

    This’ll give you about 10-12, so enough for a family of 4.

    Pannekaker is of course a side-dish, which is meant to be eaten with something else(usually tomato soup or bacon with onion sauce).

  • I would suggest adding about half a teaspoon of cardamom to the flour. Both my parents were Norwegian and that was in their family’s recipes. Excellent!

    • I always make enough to last two or three days takes me 2 or 3 hours to cook it but I’ll tell you what it’s the best Norwegian pancake mix ever my grandmother from Norway used to make it for us when we were kids and I make it special for special people on Christmas my kids are grown now and they don’t come see me so the clients that I take care of as a home health aide they’re my kids now and I make sure they have a special breakfast on the holidays because if their kids aren’t down they still like to have special things even they’re older so happy holidays to everybody and happy eating this is a delicious delicious breakfast that we use for
