Family Recipe Friday - Swedish Pancakes

This recipe was given to me by Alvina Felt Baer (we called her Skeet).  Skeet was first cousin to my dad and she started doing genealogy a number of years ago.  She contacted me, knowing I'd done a lot already, and we began a nice friendship/family-ship over email.  She was a recipe collector like me and sent me a whole book she compiled of recipes. A number of them were old family recipes.  I treasure the recipes, but not as much as I did Skeet.  Skeet passed away in 2007.

Here is a recipe she gave me from my great grandmother- her grandmother.  Inga Christina Larsdotter Aslund.  Inga was born in Langsele, Sweden in 1887.

Swedish Pancakes
Note: best with a cast iron pan.

2 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
2 beaten eggs
2 cups milk

Combine eggs, milk and butter.  Beat well.  Add flour, salt, and sugar gradually, beating constantly while adding.  Pour soup ladle full in hot frying pan and cook until top is bubbly and edges look cooked.  Flip over and cook other side.  These will be the size of the pan.
