Swedish Pancakes (Breakfast Crepes)

Our 2nd favorite pancakes are Swedish pancakes,
also known as breakfast crepes.
(our 1st is oven puffed pancakes
 These are thin crepe-like pancakes, 
cooked in a skillet then rolled or folded and served
 with a squeeze of lemon juice and dusted with 
powdered sugar or a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.
Whisk the ingredients in a medium bowl.
Melt the butter in a crepe pan or skillet, then
 whisk the melted butter into batter. 
Let the batter rest for 5 minutes
 while you preheats the pan to medium. 
Let the pan really preheat, 
longer than you normally would. 
There should be enough
butter residue left in the pan from 
melting the butter to grease it. 
Pour about 1/3 C batter into a crepe pan
or  skillet.
Tilt the skillet to swirl the batter to
cover the bottom with a thin layer of batter.
Cook about 1-2 minutes, until the edges start
 to dry and the underside is golden. 
Don't rush this step. It will release itself
 from the pan when it's cooked. Then flip.
Cook the other side about 1 minute.
Keep warm, along with the plates in the oven
 while you make the rest.
Choice of toppings: lingonberry jam, 
cinnamon sugar, powder sugar, and lemon.
Roll and serve with cinnamon sugar or
powdered sugar and lingonberry jam.
There are several other yummy ways
to serve them. Click on the links below.
Hope you enjoy one of our favorite breakfasts.

 Use a 1/3 C measure to scoop the batter into the hot 
buttered pan. Tilt the pan until the batter covers 
the bottom completely. Let cook for 1-2 minutes,

slightly golden. Flip over and cook another minute.
