Swedish Plattar Pancakes - Shrove Tuesday

http://monasterykitchen.org/swedish-pla ... e-tuesday/

SERVINGS 4-6people

INGREDIENTS

• 3 eggs
• 2 cups half and half
• 1 cup flour all purpose
• 6 Tbsp butter melted
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1 tsp vanilla
• Also needed
• butter extra for griddle
• ligonberry or raspberry jam to serve
• powdered sugar if desired

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Beat the eggs add the milk, then the flour and whisk well. Add the melted butter, sugar, salt and vanilla and whisk.
2. Let the batter stand for two hours or overnight
3. Preheat a griddle to 325 degrees and brush with butter
4. When the skillet is hot, drop in two - three tablespoons of batter for each pancake – about 4” in diameter
5. Cook until golden on one side, and then flip to the other side (about 2 min. on each side)
6. When golden, fold into thirds and remove to a plate and continue with the rest of the batter.
7. The pancakes can be kept warm in a low oven. One recipe makes 30 - 4” pancakes. Serve with the jam and a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Fresh fruit on the side makes a lovely presentation.

Frank, thanks for the recipe and the link with the back story. Interestingly enough, it came from:
The Community of Jesus
Church of the Transfiguration
Orleans, Massachusetts

I didn't know Massachusetts had an "old" Orleans!
