I think breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. It might have something to with the fact that I usually don't have to think real hard to decide what to make. During the work week I eat two waffles every morning (they must be Eggos, no other will do). That's been my habit ever since I was a little kid. I even remember the day that my mom stopped cutting up my waffles for me and made me do it myself. I know, it's strange, I can't help it. It's a serious tragedy if we are out of waffles. My husband knows better than to eat the last one. So there's a little bit of my quirky side for you.
Anyway, I had promised to share my great aunt's Finnish Pancake - Pannu Kakku (sounds something like PAN-nu KOK-ku, but I'm no expert even though I am half Finnish) recipe we made this weekend. She had given me the recipe as part of my wedding shower gift over a year and a half ago so it was about time I made this.
1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
1 Cup Flour
2 large eggs
2 T sugar 1/4 Cup butter
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Add butter to 9 x 13 pan and melt in oven. Mix other ingredients together and pour into pan. Bake until puffy and brown (about 25 minutes). Sprinkle some sugar on top. Serve with fruit topping, cinnamon sugar, syrup, whatever you think is tasty on a pancake!
She writes that my grandma and great grandma used to make this with fresh milk from the farm. Isn't it fun to look at some of the old recipes and pictures and imagine them back in the day? This is a really easy breakfast meal. And especially tasty with fresh fruit. I think it would be delicious with some baked cinnamon apples from the Apple Festival that we try to get to every year. Let me know what you serve with it if you decide to try it out.
