Pannu-Kakku-- an oven baked pancake.
I grew up eating Pannu-Kakku with my family. My grandmother is 100% Finnish and has made this oven baked pancake for many special holiday brunches. I thought it would be a perfect treat to share this recipe so you can enjoy some of the Finnish culture and delicious food. This oven baked pancake has a texture of a pancake and a custard. YUM!
Pannu-Kakku is perfect to eat with maple syrup, jam, powdered sugar or even by itself!
- 4 eggs
- 1 ½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups 2% milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 6 tablespoons melted butter
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- In a large bowl, mix together eggs and milk.
- Sift dry ingredients separately and add to egg-milk mixture, stir until blended.
- Pour melted butter in four 9-inch round pie or cake tins, spread evenly. Pour batter into tins and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until puffy and golden brown. Remove carefully from pan and serve immediately with powdered sugar or maple syrup.
Note: It is very important that the oven is HOT so the pancakes bake evenly and nicely.
