“There is only one other recipe like this on Food.com, but this one is a bit different in that there are no raisins and uses cardamom (very Finnish!) as flavoring. The Ålands Pancake starts off with a base of Semolina Porridge (prepared Cream of Wheat cereal), and is baked in a rectangular pan, then sliced and topped with cloudberry jam. Serving size is a guess, as the Scandi-Home source didn't provide the info.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First make the semolina porridge by warming the milk in a saucepan and gradually adding the cream of wheat while whisking continuously. Let simmer for about 15 minutes stirring continuously. This will take less time if you are using the "1 minute Cream of Wheat". Leave to cool completely.
  2. Whisk eggs and sugar until foamy. Add all other ingredients, including the cooled down porridge and stir well to combine.
  3. Pour the pancake mixture in to a greased oven proof dish and bake in 400F oven for 20-25 minutes until firm. Serve with a dollop of cloudberry jam (available at IKEA).
