Swedish Hot Cakes

I know these are called swedish hot cakes, but they are basically just really simple crepes.  I have no idea why my family calls them swedish hot cakes, but my mom has called them that since I was little so that is what I call them!  My daughter also calls them rolled up pancakes.


You start by placing all of the ingredients in a blender.


It will look like really thin batter.

Preheat a medium sized skillet to medium high heat. Spray with non stick cooking spray and poor in the batter 1/4 of a cup at at time.

Swirl it around to coat the bottom of the pan. Hey look there’s me in all my morning glory.  Notice my perfect swirling technique.

The edges will get a little crispy and then its time to flip.  The second side will never seems to get a pretty as the first side, but they are still yummy.


My family smears them with butter and jam and then rolls them up.  Notice the crispy edges?  Thats my favorite part!  I used to always tell my mom “A lot of butter and a little bit of jam!”

So delicious!
