Norwegian Pancakes

These remind me of the Swedish pancakes that my grandmother used to make

Yield: 3 to 4 (about 3 rolled pancakes per person)

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 15 min


3 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk (nonfat milk is fine)
2 Tablespoons melted butter
more butter for frying up the pancakes


1. In large bowl, beat eggs well. Whisk in flour and salt- mixture will be thick. Add in melted butter. Gradually whisk in milk until the batter is smooth.

2. In hot nonstick skillet, fry 1/4 cup batter at a time in a little bit of butter. If shape is not a concern, fry several at a time on a large griddle. Flip when the top appears to be set.

3. To serve, roll with a fork and top with lingonberries, strawberry jam or syrup.


*You can use maple syrup, but the fruit topping on these is much better- I suggest Llingonberry jam and a little powdered sugar.

    being a norwegian and having eaten many pancakes on my time, I would just like to say.ANYTHING GOES ON A CREPE. I always fry up bacon until crisp. Then, I use raspberry ham. Both bacon an raspberry ham adds to the pancakes a most delicious combination. And by the way, I woul try your recipe with 4 rather than 3 eggs.

    Do you think it would be okay to sub in the AP flour with oat flour?

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      I don’t think those are equal subs for each other… I don’t really know much about oat flour so I can’t recommend.

    These are very similar to the pancakes we have here in South Africa. We enjoy them with cinnamon-sugar and a little lemon juice (sprinkle over before you roll them)! Do try them like that! It is amazing! Another favourite is caramel and banana! You can even add a dollop of whipped cream for even more indulgence!

    Thank you for posting this recipe, I look forward to trying them. Question: there is a “gourmet” breakfast chain called the Original Pancake House and, I’m wondering if you have one near you? If so, do you know whether their 49’ers (they also call them flapjacks) are the same as Norwegian pancakes? I love their 49’ers and always wondered how to make them..

      Hmmm, I have no idea! I’ve been to an OPH, but I’ve not had what you mentioned.

    These look like a delicious compromise between American pancakes and crepes.

    Thanks for the recipe!
