Pannukakku Recipe

Pannukakku, is the premier pancake of Finland,  a wonderful dish to prepare when you're craving pancakes but don't want to spend a lot of time bent over a griddle.
Pannukakku is a proper traditional supper for the eve of the Birth of St. John the Baptist, June 24 in Finland.
My daughter is married to a true Yooper and his family dates back numerious generations to Finland and the Copper Mining in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Through his strong Finnish heritage, many wonderful dishes have been saved by his family and passed down. 
Pannukakku is one of them.
I love the stuff, to me it taste a little like quiche, but so much easier to make.

Preheat oven to 375

1 stick butter
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Melt 1/2 of the butter and coat a 9 x 13 baking pan
Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl, pour into baking pan.
Bake for 30 - 40 minutes
Do a toothpick test in center to see if it is done.
Toothpick should come out clean and top of Pannukakku will be light brown.

Top off with some Powdered Sugar sprinkled on top and serve with syrup or any other favorite toppings you enjoy on pancakes.
