In Scandinavian cuisine pancakes are used both as savory dishes and as desserts. Here the pancakes are served with blueberries or strawberries and makes a lovely dessert.

Serves 2 to 4.

2/3 cup (1.5dl) all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1˝ cups (3.5dl) whole milk
1 tablespoon sugar or honey, plus more for serving
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus butter for cooking

Combine the flour and salt in a medium bowl. Add the eggs, milk, and sugar, stirring with a fork until you have a light batter; make sure there are no lumps. Stir in the melted butter. Let rest for 30 minutes.

Heat 2 teaspoons butter over medium heat in a cast-iron or other heavy skillet. Add 1/3 cup of the batter and immediately tilt the skillet so that the batter spreads out evenly. Cook for approximately 3 minutes, until the batter has set on top, then flip, using a spatula. Cook for 2 minutes, then transfer to a plate. Repeat, stacking the cooked pancakes, until you have used all the batter.

Serve the pancakes warm with berries and sugar, or cheese and ham.
