Pancakes

My grandma, Alice Moe (Mummu: which is finnish for grandma) would make swedish pancakes for my sister and I every time we stayed with her. We loved them and still do. Now I make them for my boys and they also love them. They are pretty easy to make and use only 3 ingredients. 3 eggs, 3 cups of milk and 1.5 cups flour. Mix everything together in a big bowl until smooth.

Heat up your frying pan to medium-high heat. Spread the butter all around the pan, I use the stick and just rub it all over so the pancake wont stick and the butter adds a little bit of salty flavor.

Pour a soup ladle full of pancake batter onto the pan and spin/twirl the pan so the batter spreads all around the pan, kinda like a crepe.

Wait about a minute or so until the batter is not liquid anymore and flip it over, it should be golden brown in the middle and cook for another couple minutes.

Then roll up the pancake put on a plate and start another one.

The recipe makes about 10 big pancakes, we usually have leftovers. I store the leftovers in a gallon size plastic bag and just reheat them in the microwave.

We top the pancakes with cinnamon sugar and syrup. I hope you enjoy them! For more easy kid-friendly recipes subscribe below.

Two Easy Crock-Pot Meals

I am a huge fan of my crock-pot and breakfast foods, I try to use it 3-4 times a week for easy, stress free meals.

I tried out these recipes at my cabin up in north in Minnesota, there is no air conditioning at the cabin so we try to not use the oven. I love egg bakes so I figured why not try a new egg crock-pot meal.

I also use crock-pot bags so the clean-up is easy as well (no dishwasher at the cabin either). Both recipes are a dump in and cook on low. I started the breakfast casserole at midnight so it would be ready for breakfast.

I dumped in: cooked sausage, a bag of cheddar cheese, 1 bag of hash browns, diced peppers and onions, 1 cup of milk, 18 eggs, salt and pepper. Mix everything together and cook on low for 7-8 hours. You can really add whatever you want… mustard for more flavor, cooked bacon, I have even used leftover brisket and ribs for the meat or you can even go a vegetarian route and add more veggies .

Everyone loved it, I also put the casserole in tortillas to make breakfast burritos, just top with more cheese, sour cream and hot sauce. It made enough for 8 adults and 4 children with leftovers for the next day.

I know my crock-pot has seen better days, What can I say? I use it a lot.

For dessert I made a crock-pot Cinnamon roll Casserole, It consisted of 2 cans of cinnamon rolls, 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, 3 Tbsp maple syrup and 2 tsp vanilla. I cut up the cinnamon rolls into quarters and put one can on the bottom of the crock-pot then mixed together the eggs, milk, syrup and vanilla and added over the cinnamon rolls, cut up the other can of cinnamon rolls and layered on top. Drizzle on icing package and cook on low 2-2.5 hour. When its done drizzle to other icing package on and serve.

6 of us ate all the cinnamon roll casserole and didn’t leave any for the kids, they were not happy since the whole cabin smelt so delicious.
