This recipe couldn’t be more simple or delicious. It’s a treasured breakfast dish that Jeanette Irwin served to guests for years at her historic Honey House Bed and Breakfast in Phoenix. Jeanette’s recipe is for Swedish Oven Pancakes, and I think it’s going to be one of your favorites, especially this time of year when out of town guests arrive for the holidays. It’s also perfect for a family style Sunday breakfast! Jeanette shared with me why this recipe is so special. “This is the heritage recipe that I had always for my guests. My great-grandmother came here from Sweden and it’s her recipe for Swedish Oven Pancakes. These pancakes are also called Pankannugen or Ugnspannkaka, and I bake my Pankannugen in a “pam”, or ceramic dish.” I tested Jeanette’s recipe it in a glass casserole dish and it turned out beautifully. It whips together in just a few minutes and is absolutely delicious, especially served with butter and maple syrup. So, a big thumbs up on this one. Thank you Jeanette, for allowing us to enjoy your heritage one delicious bite at time!

Pour mixture into a lightly greased or buttered 9 X 13 casserole dish and bake. Serve with syrup (maple or berry) and butter. Can be served for breakfast or as an evening meal.
*Baking notes: Baking time will depend on your oven and the dish you choose. Jeanette bakes her Swedish Oven Pancakes in the ceramic dish at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. We used a glass casserole dish, and baked it at 325 degrees for about one hour. The result was a creamy and rich-tasting soufflé-like delight!
