Finnish Pancakes

Growing up in a Finnish family was always interesting.

The food though, the food was what I loved and still love today. Finnish pancakes are an absolute staple in almost every Northern Minnesotan home (along with knowing how to batter fry fish correctly, yum!). Plus they're easy, cheap and pretty fun to make. Plus they look funny too! It makes for good morning conversation!

2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon margarin (I use Country Crock with calcium)

1. Set oven to 400 degrees.

2. Put 1 tablespoon margarine in a pie plate. Melt in the oven.

3. While melting margarine, beat eggs and milk together, add salt, sugar and flour.

4. Remove pan with melted margarine, pour mix into pan. Return to the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until puffs up and edges are golden brown.

A good topping besides syrup is always apples & cinnamon. Actually, you can even sprinkle the pancake with cinnamon before you put it in the oven. The possibilities are endless!!!
