Norwegian pancakes, also known as “pannekaker,” are thin and delicate pancakes that are similar to French crepes. These pancakes are made with simple ingredients like flour, eggs, milk, and sugar, and are a popular breakfast food in Norway.

To make Norwegian pancakes, you’ll start by whisking together the flour, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. You’ll then add the eggs and milk, and whisk until the batter is smooth and free of lumps.

You’ll then heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium-high heat and add a small amount of butter or oil. Once the pan is hot, you’ll pour a small amount of batter into the pan and swirl it around to coat the bottom evenly.

The pancake will cook for about 1-2 minutes on one side, until it’s golden brown and slightly crispy around the edges. You’ll then flip the pancake over and cook for an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute on the other side.

Norwegian pancakes are usually served with a variety of toppings, such as jam, fresh berries, whipped cream, or even savory toppings like smoked salmon or ham and cheese. They can be rolled up, folded in half, or served flat, depending on the preferred serving style.

The end result is a delicious and satisfying breakfast food that’s simple and easy to make, yet full of flavor and texture. Norwegian pancakes are a great way to start your day, or to enjoy as a snack or dessert.
