You don’t have to be Danish to enjoy Danish Pancakes

I love Danish pancakes!  Essentially, they are large, thin pancakes (think crepe) that are filled with jam and sugar and rolled up.   It’s been a holiday tradition for my family since I can remember.  My dad had to translate the recipe from his dad (since it was written in rather loose terms).  But the recipe has been perfected, and I’d like to share it with my bloggin’ friends!

  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 stick of melted butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons beer

Combine flour and sugar.  Add the liquid ingredients (adding the milk gradually) and mix until creamy.  It is better to mix the batter the night before (I don’t know why, it just is).  If it’s too thick in the morning, just add a little more milk.

Cook in a skillet with butter (the bigger the better), then spread some preserves down the middle and sprinkle some sugar.  Then roll them up and enjoy!

What unique food traditions do you enjoy? What are you planning for New Years? Remember, you can always diet with the rest of us in January. Plus, I think shopping counts as exercise! 😉

(note: this is starting to sound more like a “foodie” blog…after this, I’m back to talking more about interior design!)

I love reading comments and yes, I read every one!
