Icelandic pancakes

Pancakes remind me of my grandmothers, their homes always smelled of pancakes as they made them so often. Pancakes are fairly easy to make, and it is possible to serve them in couple of different ways. The traditional way is rolled up with sugar, excellent with milk, coffee or tea. The second way which is made for more festive occasions are spread with jam and folded up with whipped cream. You will need to have a special pan for making pancakes, Icelandic version of a Crêpe pan.

300-350 gr. wheat
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla extract
30-40 gr. melted butter
2 eggs
700 ml. milk

Sift together wheat, baking powder and the vanilla extract, add the milk in parts along with the butter and eggs. The dough should be very liquid. Easiest way is to use a scoop. The pancakes are baked on both sides, mellow heat. Put butter on the pan in the beginning and it might need to be repeated couple if times while baking. Sprinkle the pancakes with sugar and roll up.

Buon appetito
