Finnish Baked PancakesFrom POPLAR CREEK GUESTHOUSE BED AND BREAKFAST
Cooking Time:10 to 12 minutes
Barbara adapted the traditional way and makes individual cakes instead of one large pancake in a pie tin.
Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees.
You need a 6 inch diameter oven-proof bowl or 6 inch cast iron frying pan for each pancake. The following ingredients make one pancake:
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup flour
- few drops almond flavoring
- 1/8 tsp. grated lemon rind (optional)
- Whole fresh blueberries, raspberries or strawberries
Spray the inside of the ovenproof bowl with cooking spray. Melt the butter in the ovenproof bowl in the oven while heating the oven.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat the egg and alternately add the milk and flour. Mix in the almond flavoring and lemon rind. Pour this egg mixture into the hot ovenproof bowl.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until the pancake puffs up and is golden. Carefully remove the pancake from oven-proof bowl and set on plate. Add about one spoon-full of two kinds of berries on top of the pancake. Squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice over the top if you wish.
Serve immediately. The pancake will deflate. Enjoy.
