“Posted for ZWT6 - Scandinavian Region - From Finland. The Finnish recipe site I found this recipe on actually categorizes this as a "dessert" recipe and not a breakfast recipe. This is not the normal round pancake Americans first think of when using the word pancake! Served with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. You will make what they call a "Cream of Wheat" first and let it cool and then prepare the "pancake".”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the cream of wheat: Bring the milk to a boil and add the semolina and salt. Cook at a low heat for approximately 10 minutes while occasionally stirring. Set aside to cool.
  2. When cooled, pour the cream of wheat into a mixing bowl. Add the eggs, sugar, flour, cardamom, vanilla and raisins if using, and stir into a smooth batter.
  3. Cover a 8" square or 9" round baking dish (with edges) with parchment paper. Brush the greaseproof paper with 3 tbls of melted butter.
  4. Pour the batter onto the baking tray and cook at 392F (or 200Celsius) for 30 to 45 minutes, until golden brown.
  5. Serve warm and top with freshly sliced strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream if desired. You can also use strawberry jam or your favorite fresh fruit in season.
