This is a treasured recipe from my childhood. Swedish Pancakes are a bit like crepes, just smaller. They are very thin, so it’s okay to eat a lot. In my family, we all go back for seconds, thirds, fourths,…

Gluten-Free: Use gluten-free flour (we recommend quinoa flour for a 1-to-1 with this recipe, or use the Paleo version below. Please note that almond flour/meal and coconut flour do not work as a 1-to-1 with this recipe). 

Paleo: Use 1/3 cup Tapioca flour + 3 TBSP coconut flour, 1 cup full-fat coconut milk, and ghee instead of flour, milk, and butter.

  • Prep Time
  • 4-6Servings


  • 3 eggs

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 cup flour

  • 6 TBSP butter, melted

  • ½ tsp salt

  • Sugar & cinnamon or maple syrup, to top pancakes


  1. Beat eggs with ½ cup of milk for 2-3 minutes with a beater or whisk.
  2. Add the flour all at once and beat to a smooth consistency.
  3. Beat in the remaining milk, the melted butter, and salt. *NOTE: Batter will be very thin.*
  4.  Heat oven to warm.
  5.  Heat a skillet or griddle pan with a small amount of oil over medium-high heat.
  6.  Pour batter onto pan to make pancakes with about a 3-4 inch diameter. (The batter is thin, so if it spreads too much, turn up the heat on your pan a little). When edges brown lightly after about one minute, turn over and cook for another minute or two.
  7.  Place pancakes on an oven-safe plate and put in the oven to keep warm.
  8.  Repeat and continue cooking in batches. They cook quickly, but it will take a lot of little batches to cook up all the batter.
  9. Sprinkle pancakes with sugar and cinnamon or drizzle with a little maple syrup and roll them up to eat (that’s how we do it anyway – my kids call them “roll-up pancakes”).
  10. Mix together berries in a small-medium bowl. Serve alongside the pancakes.
