Recipe Request - Pannukakko (Finnish Oven Pancake)
1 stick butter (1/2 cup - 1/4 lb)
2 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Set oven at 375 F. Recipe requires jelly roll pan or cookie sheet with high sides. You can also use a lasagne pan but the pancake will turn out a little more "custardy" and may require a bit more time in the oven. Even a 9X13 cake pan will work but will require more time in the oven. Basically, I use the largest pan I have with sides.
Melt 1 stick of butter on your pan in the oven. While butter is melting, mix the rest of the ingredients in a blender or with a mixer. Pour about half of the melted butter into the batter mixture and blend. Leave the rest in the pan and return the pan to the oven rack. Pour the mixture into the pan with the melted butter.
Bake for 30 minutes until light brown on top.
4-6 servings (unless you have a 12 year old boy - then make 2 batches)
