Swedish Pancakes or Crepes
My husband doesn't do very much cooking and has a limited repertoire.
This however, is one of his specialties, and he often caves into requests and gives me a morning off on Saturdays to make this for our kids.
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 T. sugar
2 1/2 c. milk
Blend in blender.
Pour very thin layer in greased (Pam) skillet over medium heat, roll around in pan so that it coats the pan. As the bubbles pop and it begins to look cooked (30 seconds - 1.5 minutes) turn onto other side. Slide onto another plate, fill, roll, and watch them instantly disappear.
Fill with any of the following: Butter, powdered sugar, jam, lemon zest mixed with sugar, lemon or lime juice, fresh fruit, ham and cheese, peanut butter, honey, cottage cheese, applesauce, syrup etc.
We generally just sprinkle powdered sugar into them, and then roll them up while they are still hot.
Note, these make a beautiful and sophisticated presentation filled with a mixture of 8 oz. cream cheese combined with a large packet of prepared instant pudding. Top with fresh fruit, berries, or a compote, a dollop of whipped cream, and a mint leaf for the full effect.
