Swedish Pancakes

Enjoying a meal, outside, with friends and family has got to be one of life's greatest blessings. It is one of the many reasons I love Spring and Fall so much... we seek out beautiful patios at local restaurants to spend our time eating and drinking on and we relax in our own backyard doing the same. The weather is just starting to turn warmer and patios all over will be opening, inviting us to sit, relax and enjoy some time doing one of our favorite things... eating. I made these lovely Swedish Pancakes and took them outside to enjoy. They are such a weekend breakfast or brunch treat served alongside bacon and topped with fresh fruit and my fruit syrup.


4 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted

Beat eggs and milk together. In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar and salt. Stir dry ingredients into wet and stir in melted butter. Heat a griddle or non-stick skillet and lightly oil. Pour batter in small circles on the griddle or cover the small skillet and lightly brown (about 1 minute) and flip for another minute. Keep war
m by placing a warm kitchen towel over the stack as you complete the rest of your pancakes or by placing on foil in a 125 degree oven.

Some of my favorite Salt Lake City patios:
~Porcupine Pub and Grille
~Cafe Madrid
~Mikado (Cottonwood)
~Cafe Molise
~Desert Edge Brewery
Other than my own backyard, these are some excellent spots to spend a summer evening in our lovely little city. If I missed anything, please let me know. What are some of your favorite outdoor dining spots?


  1. I would add Oasis to my list of fave SLC patios!

  2. I love dining outdoors too! I think your patio is probably the best place:) I also like Em's-love your list too!

  3. I love your Swedish pancakes. They look perfect. We love ours topped with fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar. Maybe we'll run into you as some patio this summer :)

  4. I love eating outside, too. Somehow it makes the experience and the meal so much more satisfying. These pancakes are so pretty!

  5. These look so good. I love to try new syrup recipes too. Thanks for the new one.

  6. I love Cafe Molise! I have to make sure to go there every summer!

  7. What a great weekend breakfast. I need to eat outside more.
