Do you love Crepes, French Toast, and Pancakes? If you do, you need to try these Finnish Oven Pancakes, also known as Pannukakku. With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, this recipe would make the perfect food for your holiday brunch.

Pannukakku is my go-to recipe when I want to cook something easy and fast. The ingredients are pretty basic so I usually have them on hand. These Oven Pancakes make a hearty breakfast but we like to eat this for supper too! A suggest would be to serve Pannukakku along with sausage and orange juice to please your guests.

Pannukakku is a recipe that my mom made when I was a child. I remember waking up for breakfast to the aroma of delicious Finnish Oven Pancakes. My husband and I both have ancestors who came from Finland, so we share the same love for these fluffy Pancakes. This particular recipe is a family recipe passed down from my husband’s grandma. 

Pannukakku Finnish Oven Pancakes Ingredients

The ingredients are pretty basic and I usually have everything I need on hand. Combine your salt, eggs, sugar, vanilla and milk together and add the flour last. 

Mixing Finnish Oven PancakesMix your ingredients together in a mixer or with a handheld mixer.

Melting Butter Finnish Oven Pancakes

After your oven has preheated, just add the butter to a 9 x 13 glass baking pan and let it melt completely. Watch the butter closely because it melts fast and can burn quickly.

Pull out your pan from the oven and pour in the batter. The butter and the batter will mix well together.

Once your batter is in the oven, your Pannukakku will slowly start to rise and brown along the edges.

After 35-40 minutes, your Pannukakku will be ready to serve and enjoy! Notice how the edges rise up to become nice and fluffy. You can sprinkle with tiny amount of sugar to add extra flavor.

Recipe Notes

I highly recommend using a 9 x 13 glass baking pan as opposed to a metal one. The recipe rises and cooks much nicer that way. We love to top our Pannukakku with homemade maple syrup. You might also want to try topping the recipe with jam, berries, whip cream, or cinnamon to add extra flavor. 

Adding vanilla is optional and the amount wasn't specified in the original recipe. I'd recommend adding 1 Teaspoon or less if you wish. 

I've tried this recipe with 2 eggs instead of 4 and I noticed the they weren't quite as fluffy. Either way, both tasted pretty good!

If you are a serving a crowd, you can easily double the recipe. I would not recommend baking two pans at the same time. The recipe doesn't seem to cook or rise as well.
