My grandma still maintains this generous tradition, and stuffed me to the gills. Like many of her fellow Yoopers, she is Finnish. However, other than the pasty (pronounced pass-tee-- meat, potatos and carrots enclosed in a flaky crust), I don't remember eating a lot of Finnish food as a kid. Certainly, I can't imagine I'd have forgotten Pannu Kakku (sounds like: bunn-ew guck-ew), an eggy, buttery oven pancake. She and I shared this treat one morning with a sprinkling of blueberries and raspberries fresh from the yard. It's guilt-inducing, dessert for breakfast--but if grandma says it's okay--it's okay!
(based on my dad's recipe, adapted to match my grandma's technique --Sorry Dad, hers is just a bit better!)
Preheat oven to 350.
1 stick of butter
Melt butter in oven in a 9x13 pan; should be sizzling when you take it out.
Meanwhile, mix other ingredients like hell - till very frothy. Pour batter into pan with melted butter.
