Kroppsua – Finnish Pancakes

By my reckoning this is the sixteenth pancake recipe I have posted.  Sixteen!! And I have another seven or eight lined up…  This is definitely a pancake obsession.  But I am very okay with that. 

Pancakes are good.

This is another oven baked recipe, this time from Finland.  Oven baked pancakes are prepared in a similar way to traditional pan cooked pancakes, but cooked in a hot oven which leaves you free to prepare a fancy topping or watch Man U play.

Guess which option I chose…

I topped them with sliced banana and maple syrup.

These are quite eggy.  Almost like an egg custard in the centre, and a small piece is a good serving as it is very filling.  It is deceptively filling as it feels light at first bite.

We both enjoyed them, and would have them again, but they wouldn’t be our first choice.  We preferred the German Pancakes, “Dutch Babies”, which are also oven baked and much fluffier and lighter.
