Total Time 35 minutes
Course Breakfast
Cuisine Danish
Servings 8 pancakes


  • 2 dl wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla sugar
  • 1 knsp. salt
  • 3 dl milk
  • 1 egg
  • Butter for frying


  • First, mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Then you add milk a little at a time. Whisk the pancake batter well to avoid lumps. It is easiest and fastest with an electric whisk.
  • Finally add eggs and stir well until the dough has the right consistency.
  • Heat the pan, melt the butter, and distribute the first batch of pancake batter. My forehead takes approx. ¾-1 dl dej. If you want to avoid the first one becoming a Monday pancake, make sure the pan is properly warm before pouring on the dough.
  • Turn when there is no more “wet dough” and finish frying on the other side.



If you think they are getting too thick, pour a little more milk into the dough.
