|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
Heat oven to 400º
Crack the four eggs into a mixing bowl
|What did we all do before Kitchen-aid mixers??|
Blend until the eggs are combined

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|

Jen, this recipe is amazing! I hate that your stove is so clean that you can take flash photos inside the oven!
Having a grandmother from the Old Country of Finland, I’m fairly familiar with Pannukakku. It’s SO good! Yes, you can fudge on the ingredients, but you have the main ones down and it’s the butter which kick this dish into high gear! As you and all others on the Internet, I’ve always cooked this on a glass pan in the oven...
Has anyone tried cooking pannukakku in the Instant Pot or any other pressure cooker? I wonder how it would work, as the dishes which will fit in a pressure cooker are much smaller and deeper.
Also, be sure to sprinkle cinnamon on top of the dish, right before it is put in to bake! Yum!!
