Finnish Pannukakku


I had Finnish Pancakes on a family cruise I took a few years ago and ever since I have been trying to re-make them and I finally did!  But the truth is, they’re so amazingly delicious and super super easy to make!

This is my go-to breakfast dish for guests at my house because it looks and tastes impressive, but the ingredients are basic things you would almost always have in your kitchen. And while the original recipe doesn’t make for the least fattening breakfast choice, I swap out a few things to help in that department and it tastes just as bomb! This recipe serves 4.


3 tbsp. Organic Smart Balance (or other butter alternative), melted

3 eggs

1/2 cup sugar (or 1/4 cup cane sugar syrup)

1 cup almond milk

1/2 cup flour

1 tsp. vanilla extract

dash cinnamon

berries & whipped cream or maple syrup (for toppings)


Preheat oven to 350°. Pour melted butter into 8×8 glass baking pan.

TIP: I put my solid butter alternative in the glass pan and melt it over a burner on the stove to save microwaving and dirtying another dish.

In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, almond milk, sugar, flour, vanilla and cinnamon. Whisk thoroughly (try to break up all the clusters of flour). Pour your batter in the baking pan with the butter in it. Bake 30 minutes (or until mixture is puffy and golden on top) and remove from oven.

Cut into squares with a spatula and serve topped with maple syrup or berries and whipped cream. I also like to serve with a side of turkey bacon to break up the sweetness (and if that turkey bacon happens to end up covered in maple syrup, so be it)! Enjoy!
