|Pannukakku - Try making a Finnish pancake today!!
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups milk
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 Tablespoons butter

Crack the four eggs into a mixing bowl
|What did we all do before Kitchen-aid mixers??
Blend until the eggs are combined
|Egg action shot my hubby was very proud of
By the way, while you are mixing these ingredients together, place the 4 Tablespoons of butter in the bottom of a 9x13 (or a 10x15 for a thinner version) pan and place in the 400º oven. The butter will melt while you mix the rest of the ingredients. Be extremely careful at this step. Do not leave the kitchen or leave the melting butter unattended. My sister in law caught her entire kitchen on fire this exact way while making cornbread. (It's a really good cornbread recipe by the way, I will share it with you soon)
|Melting butter... delicious but please KEEP an eye on it
Blend until you have a smooth thin batter
|Pannukakku batter is very thin and not like a regular pancake batter
|No need to grease the pan with delicious bubbling butter around

But suddenly stuff happens.... It starts growing. Like it's trying to get out of the pan. Bring the kids over and turn on the oven light. It's like breakfast and a SHOW I tell you...
|It's fun to watch your breakfast try and get away
|Warning, taking this out of the oven in front of guests will garner "oooo's and ahhh's" from all those assembled.
You can serve it with fruit compote, jelly and whipped cream:
|This was apricot pineapple jelly, a recent discovery that I fell in love with
