Swedish Pancakes

Swedish Pancakes are also called Lapper or Ohukkaat in Finnish; Lapper or Plättar in Swedish

These pancakes are traditionally served with lingonberries or Lingonberry Preserves.

4 to 6 servings.

Swedish cooks use a special cast-iron pan called a Plett Pan (plättpanna), 
which has seven shallow depressions, three inches in diameter.

½ cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
½ cup heavy (whipping) cream
3 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Sour cream and your favorite Scandinavian Preserves

Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir in the milk, cream, eggs, and melted butter and blend until smooth. Brush the griddle with butter and place it over medium-high heat. To form each pancake, 
drop 1 tablespoon of batter onto the griddle. After 1 to 2 minutes, when the edges begin to brown, 
turn each pancake over with a narrow spatula and cook the other side for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden. 
Serve immediately with sour cream and preserves.
