    oh i'm missing the good, thin pancakey-crepe desserts. so many creperies here, but none i've found that good. this looks yummy. i just need a nice milk tea or coffee on the side. little my is hilarious, too -- a bit of a sourpuss, that face.

    For anyone wondering about the wooden toy in the background, I got this info from a friend in Sweden.

    She´s from a story, "Mumintrollen" by Tove Jansson. She´s called "Lilla My"

    Oh, very interesting recipe! I love (ordenary) Swedish pancakes and Swedish small pancakes. On my cakes I have jam. On some of the cakes I put butter (like on a sandwich), sugar(lightly) and powder them with cinnamon. The best berries for Swedish pancakes I think is European goosebarryjam(made of the ed sort of berries) and a splotch of whipped cream. Other good jams for pancakes are strawberry jam, rasberry jam and blueberry(blueberis are very healthy!) jam. To the pancakes I dronk coffee or really cold organic low-fat milk.

    I like the idea of showing the cakes by using Little My as a presenter. I like Little My. (You can find her in my photostrem. Make a search for: ”Little My”!)

    I will try this recipe. Yes, lingonberry jam is also good with pancakes.
    But...I would change the red background, besuse it has the same color as the hair and coat of Little My. She – the puppet – does not stand out well enough. Otherwise I like your presentation.

    Thank you, Mike(PhillyFoto) for pointing me here!
