And do I have a recipe for you.
This is more like a crepe, rather than the big fluffy pancake most people are used to. And this is also my default pancake, mainly cause this is the kind I grew up eating.
Well that and Æbleskiver
Both of which have a place in my heart, but with the Æbleskiver I need to get out the special pan but with Pandekager all I need is a skillet, an appetite and this recipe.
This makes about 12 pancakes, depending on the size of the pan you use.
This is also Chimi approved. I say that only because she loves them, but she likes hers with syrup and butter. This is also a rare treat for her, as pancakes are not often served to dogs. But, what can I say, she's a little spoiled.
The recipe is at the end however, I haven't figured out how to embed the pictures into the recipe yet.
Egg yolks and sugar whisked together until thick.
This one's just cause it looked so pretty. The lovely lace of the cooked pancake, perfectly browned.
Pandekager (Danish Pancakes)
- 2 cups flour (200 grams)
- 3 eggs separated, with the whites beaten to a soft peak
- 2 teaspoons Sugar
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup water
- Zest of one lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon Cardamom (opt.)
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- Beat the egg whites til almost stiff, set aside.
- Whisk the egg yolk in with the sugar until the yolks are thick and lemon colored, and the sugar is dissolved. Then add half the flour, whisk together, add half the milk, whisk together, then add the remaining flour and milk and water and whisk together.
- Fold in the beaten egg whites, at the last, fold in the butter. This will make a light thin batter.
- Heat the skillet until hot, grease it with a little butter or oil, or non stick spray, ladle in 1/4- 1/2 cup of the batter, tilting the pan so that it covers it all the way. Let cook for just a couple of minutes until the surface looks a little dry, then flip over and cook the other side for another 30-45 seconds. Remove from pan to a hot serving platter, and sprinkle a little sugar on top and roll up. Continue to cook the remainder of the pancakes, rolling them up as you remove them from the pan. You can also add a little strawberry or raspberry jam as well to the inside. Serve hot.

And the extra pancakes, well, after setting Chimi's pancake down for her.
And a fork and a knife as well.
