Do you want to make pancakes for breakfast, lunch or dinner? Pancakes are very tasty and also very easy to make at home.
What I love about pancakes is that they can vary so much with different toppings. You can, for example, turn pancakes from a hearty dinner dish into a sweet dessert.
Below are my favorite recipes for pancakes that only take an hour to make at home.
Tips for success with pancakes
Before you start the recipe, there are a few things to keep in mind. Here are some tips for success with pancakes:
Avoid the formation of lumps in the pancake batter
To prevent lumps from forming in the dough, my advice is to first mix the eggs, milk and salt in a bowl.
Then add the wheat flour a little at a time and beat into a smooth dough.
Beat the batter before baking new pancakes
The batter may sink to the bottom after standing for a while, so remember to stir the batter a little between each pancake.
Be careful with the salt if you make a double batch
If you plan to make a double batch of this recipe, start with 0.5 tsp salt and taste before adding more salt. Pancakes that are too salty are not good!
Use with a pancake spatula
If you have a pancake maker at home, I recommend using it. It is easier to fold pancakes with such a spatula than with a regular spatula.
Possibility of a frying pan for pancakes
I like to use a cast iron pan for making pancakes. Partly because it provides a better frying surface, but also because the pancakes don’t burn as easily.
If you don’t have a cast iron pan, you can use a regular frying pan or plate pan to prepare the dish.
If you have a frying pan that is too hot, there is a risk that the pancakes will burn.
I have steps 1-12 on my induction stove and I usually cook on step 6. It’s better to have a little less heat than a lot of heat!
A nice and simple pancake recipe for about 10-12 pancakes. Serve with whipped cream and jam.
6 dl regular milk
3 dl wheat flour
0.5 tsp of salt

- Heat a frying pan with a drop of butter. Pour in about 1 dl of pancake batter and rotate the frying pan so that the batter is distributed evenly.
- Turn the pancakes when the batter has settled and the bottom is colored. Fry until a beautiful golden brown color appears on the other side.
- Place the finished pancakes on a plate and cover with a plate to retain heat.
- Bake the rest of the pancakes.
Remember to whisk the batter between each pancake for best results.

3. Add the wheat flour gradually.
4. Make a smooth dough by mixing it together without lumps.
5. Heat a drop of butter in a frying pan, preferably a cast iron pan.
6. Pour about 1 dl of dough and fry on medium heat until it hardens on the surface.
7. Lightly lift the pancake with a spatula and check if the pancake has taken on color or not.
8. Turn the pancakes over and fry the bottom until golden brown.
9. Put on a plate and fry the rest. You get the best result by whisking the batter between the pancakes to be fried.
