My parents travelled through Finland this summer and they brougt home some delicacies and knowledge about delicacies. Here’s a recipe for Åland Pancake.
1 l milk
1 dl of pudding rice (or 1.5 dl of semolina)
1 dl white flour
½ – 1 dl sugar
½ tsp salt
2 tsp cardamom
50 g butter
Boil milk and rice (or semolina) to a smooth porridge and allow to cool off. Beat together the eggs and sugar and stir into the porridge. Add flour, salt and cardamom. If the batter is too thick you can add more milk. Grease an ovenproof dish or pan and pour in the batter. Add a few knobs of butter. Bake in the oven at 200°C for 30-50 minutes (until the sides are golden brown and the center is no longer gelatinous). Serve with stewed prunes or jam and whipped cream.
