This morning, I wanted to make something hearty for breakfast. I also wanted to use up some eggs because we had 13 eggs in the fridge, with a half-dozen more coming on Wednesday with my weekly Boston Organics delivery.
I've stumbled across a few blogs recently focusing on Swedish and Scandinavian design (check out red.house and My Scandinavian Retreat for some amazing photographs and ideas) and, besides making me want to hop on a plane to Sweden and then completely redecorate my house starting first by painting all the walls white, they have made me hungry for Scandinavian foods.
So, on this chilly morning with eggs to use and a lonely oven, I dug into my Swedish cookbooks and decided on this one:
|The Great Scandinavian Baking Book by Beatrice Ojakangas|
|Whisk everything together and then let the batter rest for half an hour, though I wasn't quite that patient.|
Coat the pan with the melted butter, then pour in the batter, and bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes.
|Beautiful, huge golden pancake with butter pools. Look at those lovely crisp peaks around the edges!|
|Velvety, decadent breakfast - perfect for a chilly Fall morning.|
This was definitely a special occasion breakfast for us. (It would be perfect for Christmas morning.) It was much richer and sweeter than our everyday breakfast. But we enjoyed it very much, and all those eggs gave us the protein we needed later in the day to make it through the huge corn maze at Connors Farm!
