How to create Swedish Pancakes

How to create Swedish Pancakes. Because of Sweden's large north-south extent there have been regional differences in Swedish cuisine. Living in the North features such meats a Reindeer, and Polar Bears. Some people like to enjoy a combination they call, “Reinbears”. Which features parts of the two animals mixed together.
Dishes in the South have a higher presents of vegetables in them. Most of the traditional dishes offer simple, contradicting flavours; an example would be the traditional dish which features meatballs, gravy with tart, and cranberry sauce. Yummy
I decided to feature a recipe that is favourite among the north and South population in Sweden. It’s called swedish Pancakes.
Ingredients for creating Swedish Pancakes
·         1 cup flour
·         1 tablespoons sugar
·         1/4 teaspoon salt
·         3 eggs
·         2 cups milk or 1 cup milk and 1 cup half and half
·         6 tablespoons butter, melted
·         2 Cups of peaches either baked or canned
·         4 table spoons of powdered sugar
·         2 table spoons of melted butter
Instructions for creating Swedish Pancakes
·         Sift flour into bowl, add sugar and salt.
·         In a separate bowl beat eggs together with 1/2 cup of milk
·         Add all of flour mixture and beat well until smooth.
·         Beat in the remaining milk and the melted butter, stirring until well blended and let              stand2 hours (Mom put hers in the fridge over night for pancakes the next day
           This allows the flour to swell and is essential.
·         Base the bottom of the skillet with olive oil or butter. Then Heat the Swedish pancakes in
           a skillet
·         Beat batter again.  Pour some batter into pan and swirl around, if necessary, to coat   
           thinly.  Turn when little bubbles have risen to the surface and popped.  Pancake should be
           nicely browned on both sides.  Place on a very hot platter and add 4 table spoons of
           powdered sugar
·         The top with 2 table spoons of the melted butter
They are beautiful with fresh fruit and cream, sugar and cinnamon, or you can always use cranberry
sauce or cranberry jelly.

You will burn a few, make some too thick and some too thin, and scramble many while turning them.  Then one day you will just get the knack and they will all be perfect from then on. 
I recommend singing and dancing while your get your cook on.
Remember to kiss the chief after eating your Swedish Pancakes!
