Swedish Pancakes for Christmas Breakfast

As far back as I can remember Christmas morning has always been the best time of the year at my grandparents house because every year we had Swedish pancakes for breakfast, every morning somehow everyone would wake up at 5am or 6am without being told so and that would be because we knew breakfast was right around the corner. When everyone had their coffee and were fully awake, we would open presents rapidly in excitement for what seemed to be the best Christmas gifts year after year.
After a few moments proceeding gift exchanges and Santa’s presents the one thing on everybody’s mind was “When are we starting the Swedish Pancakes?”.
Like clockwork my grandmother would already be mixing the ingredients and heating up the griddle. The tradition of who cooked them on Christmas began with my uncle, then it would switch off to someone else while he would eat then back to him to finish. After a few years I was handed the spatula and I began flipping these crepe-like pancakes for everyone to enjoy.
As the years passed, I alone was the image of the official Swedish pancake maker for the household. To this day I’m still as excited as I was in my younger days to hear the sizzle on the griddle and taste of the lingonberry and butter filled pancakes. These morning delights have always satisfied the family and friends who would join in on the holiday.
I could do nothing better then share a family recipe that has always been with us longer then I have been alive, I hope these delicious and delicate little delights bring as much joy and happiness to your family as it has mine. These aren’t only to be enjoyed once a year, but they have been served on any special occasion to celebrate.
Note: We have always doubled the recipe because they were ate very quickly.
