Guilt-Free Swedish Pancakes with Strawberries. YUM!

Have I ever told you I’m a HORRIBLE pancake-maker? I am. Like, really bad. Jon is the pancake-maker of the house. I am so impatient, and they usually end up mushy on the inside and burnt on the outside. Gross!

Anyway, the other day McKenzie requested pancakes, and with Jon gone I didn’t know what to do. I prefer thin pancakes anyway, so I looked up a quick recipe for Swedish Pancakes…I made a few tweaks and they turned out SO tasty, I had to share! Since I love my sweets this pregnancy, I added powdered sugar, a couple chocolate chips, and strawberries. Delicious, and practically guilt free…and the best part is: you probably have most of the ingredients already! So what do you think of my first ever attempt at food photography? Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. ;)

Guilt-Free Swedish Pancake Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 20 minutes | Serves 4


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Whisk eggs and milk in a mixing bowl, and slowly add flour while constantly stirring (so it doesn’t get clumpy).
  2. Add sugar, salt, vanilla, and melted butter to the mixture. Whisk thoroughly and your batter is complete!
  3. Pre-heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat (I used 4 on our electric stove-top) & coat with non-stick spray or butter.
  4. Add enough batter (about ½ cup) to thinly & evenly coat the bottom of the skillet. Allow the batter to cook all the way through until it’s solid, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and allow another 2 minutes, or until slightly browned. Repeat with the rest of the batter so you have a complete batch, and you’re done!
  5. Cut pancake into slices of 4, pizza style. Garnish as desired. I used strawberries, powdered sugar, and chocolate chips. It’s also delicious with jelly! You could probably drizzle with chocolate too. Yum!

Yum! These sound delicious. I prefer thinner pancakes too. Regular ones always feels so heavy to me. And yes, the photo looks fab! Love how you cut the strawberry.
