Below in the post, you will find my favorite recipe from Scania’s Egg Cake + step-by-step pictures with instructions.
This is how you avoid burnt omelettes
One of the biggest reasons an omelette burns is if you leave it on the stove for too long.
To keep it from burning, you need to stir and move the spatula in the bottom of the frying pan back and forth periodically until it stops dripping.
When the scrambled eggs become creamier and firmer, reduce the heat on the plate and let it stand for a few minutes to get a nice surface. Remember to shake the pan regularly so that the egg cake moves and does not stick.
The first time I made an egg cake it burned and when I turned it upside down. The whole top was burnt on the pan and looked like the picture below when I flipped it over.
I saved the cake by scraping off the burning of the pan. Melted a dollop of butter and baked the egg cake again for a few minutes until it got a nice surface, then I did the rest of the steps of this recipe.
Although it wasn’t perfect, it was great, which is the most important thing!

More information about Scania’s Egg Cake
Egg cake is Scania’s traditional dish that resembles and somewhat resembles the most well-known baked pancakes.
The dish is made from a pancake-like batter to which you add extra eggs and milk for a really creamy texture.
The cake is usually served with fried pork and fried lingonberries, but you can also serve it with bacon.
Before lingonberries and lingonberry jam were available in Scania, people usually ate Scania omelettes with applesauce or apple wedges fried in butter – which is also good!
Egg cakes are usually fried in pork fat and a little butter, which gives the cake a particularly nice taste. You can also skim off the fat and just fry in butter if you prefer.
How long does Scania’s Egg Cake last?
The egg cake is always eaten immediately, but it is also good to heat it up and eat it the next day.
If you have leftovers from dinner, store the eggnog in an airtight container and eat it within 2-3 days.
