IHOP Swedish Pancakes

IHOP Swedish pancakes are similar to buttermilk pancake recipes in texture, but feature some added spices. Traditionally, Swedish pancakes are topped with jams, jellies, or a lingonberry sauce. This classic breakfast recipe found at the International House of Pancake restaurant chain helps you bring home the flavor of the restaurant, without the cost. The recipe is simple to prepare, but you should allot sufficient cooking time as they can take a bit of time if you make them one-by-one. You can make the pancakes faster by using more than one pan at a time.

Serves: 6

Start to finish: 20 minutes

  • Swedish pancakes are a bit on the sweeter side and make for a great dessert option, especially when preparing breakfast for dinner. You can easily make up a dry mix for the Swedish pancakes ahead of time, then add the liquid ingredients right before you are ready to pan fry them. Consider doubling the recipe, as cooked pancakes store well in the refrigerator for up to two weeks and are easy to reheat in the microwave. If you are on a restrictive diet, you can modify this recipe to use gluten-free flour or alternative sugar substitutes.
  • The lingonberry is a tart, red berry that is related to the cranberry. Lingonberries can be found growing wild in the mountainous areas of Canada, the United States, Russia, and Scandinavia.[3]
