Swedish Pantry


Recipes and Serving Ideas

The Swedish Pantry’s pancake mix makes a great base for three meals a day plus dessert. The mix can be refrigerated for later use or you can make up the pancakes ahead of time and freeze them. The frozen pancakes come in handy for impromptu guests and large-scale gatherings – they defrost in minutes at room temperature and can be used to make a quick dessert or easy breakfast (see recipes below).

Best method for ahead-of-time preparation: Once pancakes cool, layer them in plastic wrap or wax paper, seal in a ziplock bag, and freeze. To defrost, take them out of bag and lay individual pancakes out on a tray or counter. The pancakes will defrost in minutes.


Serve pancakes stacked or rolled with jams and fresh fruit on the side. Try serving with our Lingonberries for an authentic Swedish pancake taste.


Kids love Swedish pancakes! Try making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with the pancakes. They make a great lunchbox item too – use frozen pancakes in the morning to make the sandwich and it should be defrosted and ready to go by lunchtime.

Swedish pancakes make a wonderful base for desserts.

Serve stacked with 2 scoops of ice cream, a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. You can garnish the plate with some fresh fruit or berries.

For a Swedish pancake “log” put 2 scoops of ice cream atop a pancake, roll, drizzle with chocolate sauce, top with freshly whipped cream and a cherry. You can create your own fruit sauces by pureeing strawberries and/or raspberries or simply serve the berries alongside on the plate as a garnish. The possibilities are endless.
