Puffy baked pancakes are popular in many cultures.  The batter is almost like any pancake batter but poured all at once into a hot pan and baked instead of making into individual pancakes in a skillet.  

The secret is to make sure the pan is very hot and the butter starts to brown before pouring in the batter; that’s how the wonderful buttery crispy edges are formed.

 All the ingredients prepped and measured to get started making my Finnish Grandmothers Kropsu recipe, just like she did when I was growing up. I love that my family enjoys this simple recipe and I really like to make it for them, just like my Grandma did for me.

 A delicious breakfast of  home made Kropsu using Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract topped with fresh berries, honey and powdered sugar with sausage, a hashbrown and a hot cuppa.

 This is the egg, sugar and salt whisked by hand, ready to alternate adding milk and flour.

 Quality ingredients like this Pure Vanilla Extract from Rodelle with its rich naturalvanilla flavor from hand selected vanilla beans from Madagascar make for the best tasting Kropsu.

 All ingredients ready to go! I start with placing the cubed butter in a 9X12 pan while the oven is preheating to 400 degrees. When the butter is melted and browned and the oven temp reaches 400 I carefully add the batter to the pan and quickly get it back in the oven to bake for about 30 minutes, I like to keep an eye on it and when the edges start to brown I know it is ready!

 4 organic farm fresh eggs whisked by hand.

 Rising right out of the pan and just about ready to take out of the oven!

 I like to prep and measure out all the ingredients because they are applied quickly and it is important to have everything ready for the best outcome of a fluffy baked pancake.

Here is the Recipe:

 Just look at how wonderful this serving of Kropsu is, topped with fresh berries, honey and powdered sugar. You can top it with maple syrup, home made preserves or whatever your preference is.

 The recipe is simple, with just a few ingredients that are always in our kitchen! The high quality vanilla is a key factor in this delicious recipe!

 This is a show stopper in the kitchen, everyone loves to see the giant raised Finnish Pancake come out of the oven smelling sweet and buttery, ready to be served and topped with whatever your choice of topping. Our family loves to top the Finn pancake with fresh berries, honey and powdered sugar.

 The key to a big fluffy Kropsu is to melt the butter in the pan first 

and add the batter to the hot 9X12 pan
