swedish hotcakes.

I have the best dad ever. In fact as I am sitting in his office typing this, he is making swedish hotcakes for my children. My children love him, adore him even, and I think the swedish hotcakes are one of the secrets to his success. We grew up eating them, and the girls are growing up eating them, and they make me happy.. so I thought I'd share.

Hill Kids Favorite Swedish Hotcakes

2 eggs
1 1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. wesson oil (any vegetable oil will do)

1 t. baking powder
2 T. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 c. flour

Stir well until there are no lumps. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into heated, greased pan and swirl pan to form flat circle. When edges start to curl and small bubbles appear flip and cook on second side until gold. 

We always top with melted butter and cinnamon/sugar, or strawberries and whipcream, but the possibilities are endless. 

I'd love to hear what toppings you come up with. Enjoy!

  1. Um...I have tasted these and they are divine! And for some reason, they taste SO much better when you make them, than when we try. Mmmmmm.

  2. These are delicious with Nutella! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  3. Mmmm...those look so yummy. I'm bookmarking this page!

  4. Lemon juice and sugar.

  5. I'm going to have to make these for my kiddos today!

  6. This recipe has been in my husband's family for years. They call it Bellina though. The only thing we eat on them is syrup and black berry jelly. Everyone has a different technique on eating them. Rolling them up like a burrito or folding them over into a pie shape. The possibilities of Bellina are endless. Good post.

  7. bananas and nutella together. bliss.

  8. My husband ate this a lot in Finland. He likes it with just butter and jam, but I think they do a savory version with meat, too.

  9. Yum! I've delayed in commenting on your sweedish hotcakes because... I can't stop making them! Thank you for the push that I needed to make them. Simple and delicious = perfection.
