Swedish Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Hi all– Mom came for breakfast last week and we sat down to these pretty pancakes. We spent the morning talking through every little thing.  And the pancakes were thin and tender and just sweet enough under that pile of berries and cream.  Great way to start the day.

Got the recipe from Mollie’s blog– The Frugal Hausfrau.  Mollie is forever posting recipes i can’t wait to try!  Love her sense of humor and straightforward helpful instructions and the wide variety of recipes she sends out.


Blueberry Sauce:
1  1/2 cups blueberries
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tab. sugar
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup water

Whipped Cream:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla instant pudding mix

1  1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups buttermilk or whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 eggs
butter for the grill.

To make the blueberry compote, mix together the 2 tab. sugar and the cornstarch in a saucepan until there are no cornstarch lumps.  Then set the pan on medium-high heat and add the orange juice, water and 1/2 cup of the blueberries.  Cook stirring 3 or 4 minutes until the blueberries start to pop and he mixtures thickens.  Stir in the remaining blueberries and cook a minute more.

Whip the cream, powdered sugar and instant vanilla pudding mix (to set the whipped cream) with an electric mixer (the whisk attachment works best) until it is stiff and creamy.  Set it in the fridge until you are ready to eat.

For the pancakes, stir together the flour and salt. Then mix in the milk, cream and eggs until it is all blended.  Melt a tsp. of butter on the grill and then cook the pancakes over medium heat about 2 to 3 minutes on each side until they are lightly browned.  Set them on a baking sheet as you finish each one and put them in the oven on the lowest temperature to keep them warm.  Makes about 10 large thin. pancakes.

To serve them, fold 2 pancakes into fourths on each plate, and top with blueberry compote and whipped cream.  So pretty!

Thanks Mom for always having time to drop by for a meal and a talk.  You’re the best!

    • Hi Mary– agree. I like big breakfasts with family– feels festive (after my usually bowl of cereal or oatmeal!) Are you counting down days?? some schools here are out already! xox

      • Hi Rhonda, how is your week going? Yes I am counting down the days. I taught a dogs vs cats lesson the other day…the kids loved it! I chose the cat and made a mini poster trying to persuade them that cats are better. They loved it and didn’t even know it was good persuasive writing practice! I need the break but I will miss the kids. I’m sure you understand this. Blessings

  1. Looks incredibly delicious, Rhonda! 🙂 And thank you Mollie too 🙂 From time to time I would love to have pancakes, but this idea does not excite anyone at home 😀 😀 Even my little one is not fan of sweets at all… Have a great week, Rhonda! Hugs!! ❤

      • Ha, Ha. In Holland itself. They are thin and they have items, such as whole stripes of bacon, cooked inside. I suppose the pancakes themselves aren’t bad, it’s the topping – they don’t use maple syrup but this disgusting molasses stuff. I do have a fair amount of family there.

        • I’m a little jealous Lisa– we traveled to the Netherlands a couple times when we lived those years in Spain– and it was all so pretty and charming. And we loved the pancakes, but were definetly eating at tourist places. Do you get to visit very often??

    • Hey Kat– these seemed more “eggy” than crepes I’ve had. But easy to make a pile of them and pretty delicious. I’ve only made crepes a couple times– what you you serve in/with them?? Happy weekend! Hope it’s a good one, friend. xo

  2. I seem to be able to comment today! A minor miracle, so I had to scroll down to find this recipe. You’ve made them so gorgeous! And I see that bit of pudding in the whipped cream. What a fun touch!! And thanks for the shout out, Rhonda!
