We continue to look a bit closer at traditional Swedish fare, which really is perfect for this time of year when you still crave a bit heavier food.
Ugnspannkaka med fläsk - Fläskpannkaka (pork pancake) is a special Swedish and Norwegian variant of pancakes, baked in an oven and usually served with lingonberry jam.
¾ pound (300 g) lightly smoked bacon or side of pork
3¼ cups milk
1¾ cups flour
Preheat oven to 435 F°.
Slice the pork into small cubes. Place in a 12” x 18” rectangular baking dish. Place in oven and brown. Stir occasionally so the pork browns evenly.
Beat the eggs. Add half the milk and all the flour to eggs and beat until batter is smooth and without lumps.
Stir in the remaining milk.
Pour the batter into the baking pan and place it in the middle of the oven.
Bake 25-30 minutes until the pancake is completely firm and golden brown.
Allow it to set a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm with lingonberry jam or finely shredded green cabbage, which has been flavored with lingon jam.
