Crepes/Swedish Pancakes

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is crepes-2.jpg

So, how similar are all the crepe recipes you find on line to the recipe my family has been using for years and years? We call these Swedish pancakes. Why do we call them Swedish pancakes when we’re Norwegian? Probably to make them sound foreign and exotic.

1 cup flour

3 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup water

1/4 teaspoon salt

This is the typical recipe on-line. I like the batter a little richer. I like it like we always make it.

*****from the Recipe Box:

The recipe above is not the recipe Grandma O used. She was heavily into eggs, usually around 6. There would be no water, only milk. She would whip it up and then let it sit for at least 30 minutes.

This is not a recipe to plan on feeding a large group since you can only make one at a time.

We serve ours with either butter and sugar or sour cream and ligonberry jam.

and remember what MLK Jr said: Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. Big kiss, Lynn
