Wanna know something weird? When I speak Finnish, I always have big problems talking about pancakes. Because in Finland a pancake is something big and square made in the oven. But it’s super yummy and the consistency is almost even better than fluffy american pancakes! And you don’t have to stand at the stove all morning turning around your pancakes and watching them constantly. Here comes a healthyfied recipe (without sugar and fat) of the Finnish “pancake”!
800 ml milk of choice (you can replace some with mineral water)
1 tsp baking powder
4 cups flour (I use gluten-free flour and oat flour)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cardamom
4 tbsp plain yogurt or quark
sweetener of choice
protein powder if required
- Preheat your oven to 200°C.
- Mix your ingredients, first the liquid ones, then add the dry ones. Let it stand for a while.
- Cover a baking tray with baking paper and pour the batter on it.
- Place it into the oven for about 25 minutes.
- After that you cut your pancake into little squares and serve them with fruit and jam. In Finnland it’s traditional to serve it with strawberry jam and cream! 😉
