Plättar are thin Swedish pancakes and is Scandinavian equivalent to the American pancakes. However, in Sweden, it’s a popular afternoon snack as well. We call it Mellanmål, literally translated, in between meals. As a kid I loved them. But we didn’t have a skillet used for that purpose. Which means I had to eat them whenever I was at a Swedish friend’s house. Since plättar, thin Swedish pancakes are indeed a very Scandinavian thing.
However, now I have one from Le Creuset, which I adore. It’s brilliant.
I usually make them either for breakfast or served after I make an artichoke soup. And I’m yet to find a kid who doesn’t love them as much as I do.
They are absolutely best served with freshly whipped cream and homemade strawberry jam. I strongly encourage you to give them a go!
