Swedish Pancakes . . .  these thin, crepe-like pancakes are whipped up in the blender in just minutes, and they are incredibly delicious. A family favorite!

Swedish Pancakes with vanilla pudding and strawberries.

I had a hard time sleeping a few nights ago, and my wonderful husband got up and kept the kids quiet so that I could sleep in. Not only that, but when I got up, he was making breakfast. And he doesn’t like to cook. Man, I love that guy.

He made me Swedish Pancakes. They are one of our favorite breakfasts, all of my kids love them. In fact, if I ever ask them what they want for breakfast, I hear a chorus of “Swedish Pancakes!” Thankfully they are old enough to help cook them, because they can eat a ton of them! Swedish pancakes are thinner than regular pancakes, but thicker than crepes.

Crepe like Swedish Pancakes are a family favorite breakfast. Some of the tastiest pancakes you'll ever try!

I got the recipe from my mom, who got it from my grandma. She was part Swedish. She died when I was just a baby, but I still think of her when I make this recipe. We like them best with berries and Vanilla Sauce, or Buttermilk Syrup.

You whip up the batter in the blender, then just pour them into a skillet. I like to use my electric skillet so I can cook several at at time. A must when you have a large family. 🙂

Swedish Pancakes
Between a pancake and a crepe, these Swedish pancakes are a family favorite, and so easy to make!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 5 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-2 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter*


Beat eggs in a blender. Add sugar, salt, and milk. Slowly add flour, then melted butter. Beat till smooth. (It should be the consistency of thick cream.)

Pour about 3 Tbsp of batter into a medium hot skillet. (I use a non-stick electric skillet.)

Serve with your choice of topping. We love buttermilk syrup, or whipped cream and fruit.


-*The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup melted butter. I cut back to save my waistline and my husband's cholesterol, but you can feel free to use all of it if you so desire. I won't stand in your way.
