also known as Pannukakku (what a fun word to say!), is another of my favourite Finnish recipes (you can find the recipe for Pulla here). It has the same basic ingredients that you would put in your ordinary pancake, only you don't have to slave over the stove flipping pancakes - just mix it together and pop it in the oven. It has a soft custardy consistency that the kids (and I) just love.
2 tablespoons butter
4 cups milk
4 large eggs
4 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup plain flour
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 200C or 400F. Put the butter in a 9"x12" baking pan and put the pan in the oven until the butter is melted. Take the pan out of the oven and swirl the butter around to coat the sides of the pan.
In a bowl whisk the eggs lightly and add the milk, sugar and salt. Whisk in the sifted flour. Pour the mixture into the baking pan and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until nicely puffed and browned on top. The pancake will sink as it cools and is very custardy in texture. Serve warm (I quite like it cold too) with strawberry jam (I think they call it jelly in the USA?) or if you're american/canadian like my husband, with maple syrup.
Addit: It's a good idea to let this pancake cool for a while to let it set. If you cut into it too quickly when it's hot it kind of separates.
