Pannekaker (Norwegian Pancakes)

Todays recipe is for pannekaker! Which is just Norwegian for pancakes.
In our neck of the woods pancakes aren’t considered a breakfast food, but one of those typical go to weeknight dinners, especially for families as it’s a big hit with the kids. This one is one of my daughters favorite meals, where she’ll squeal “PANCAKES!” while spinning around the kitchen.


Makes for 4 servings. 


  • 13.5 oz plain flour. 
  • 2 teaspoons salt. 
  • 20 oz milk. 
  • 4 eggs. 
  • 2 tablespoons margarine / butter. 


  1. Add flour and salt to a bowl. Stir in the milk, whip it until the batter is smooth and no lumps. 
  2. Beat the eggs into the batter. Let the batter rest for 20 minutes. 
  3. Cook the pancakes in a frying pan with a bit of butter on medium heat. The amount of batter really depends on the size of your pan, but it’s supposed to be a fairly thin pancake. 

How you have the pancakes is up to you basically. We tend to have it with jam, sugar, or bacon. My daughters favorite is to add a bit of cinnamon with her sugar.
