Anna Pearl's Norwegian Pancakes

Anna Pearl's Norwegian Pancakes

Grandma used to make these for us on Christmas morning. My Mom continued the tradition and today my family enjoys this special dish every holiday.


1 cup milk or 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup half and half
2 eggs
1 teaspoon sugar
1 pinch salt
1 cup flour
1 bottle strawberry syrup
whipped cream

Pour milk into a blender. Add the 2 eggs and blend well. Add the sugar and salt. Blend well. Slowly add the flour, while blending. Allow to blend for 2 minutes, making sure that all flour is off the sides of the blender.

Spray cooking spray on a cast iron skillet and heat. Pour 1/8 cup batter onto the skillet. Swirl the skillet around so that the batter forms a thin round pancake. Allow to cook until bubbles form and break on the pancake. Flip it over and brown the other side.

When cooked, serve by buttering the pancake (best if real butter is used) swirling syrup on the pancake and covering in whipped cream. Roll up the pancake and swirl more syrup on the top. Enjoy!
