Panakooken

I was sitting in a meeting the other day at work, talking about things that had to get done, client needs, etc., etc. When everything was said and done, a few of us began talking about our holidays and what we did. I began talking about the Swedish traditions that my family does each year and glögg came up. Within seconds I was on a soapbox talking about how amazing Sweden is and how much I love having the traditions that my family brought me up with. Which makes me thrilled to be sharing today's simply delicious recipe. cinnamonsugar

Panakooken is a strange word. If it dissuades you from trying this recipe, just think of it as an oven pancake. Add the fruit of your choosing and a little sugar sprinkled on top and you have an incredible addition to any breakfast or brunch.

In fact, this was one of the dishes that I made for my family on Christmas morning. Typically after opening stockings and gifts from Santa (yes, even as a 27-year old I still get presents from Santa Claus), my dad will head into the kitchen to make breakfast for the family. This year I took over. With nieces, I needed to be sure to make something that wasn't sure strange, something that both adults and children would like.

I chosen to make these with slices apples and cinnamon sugar, but feel free to use any other fruits: bananas, blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries.

With each post that is published year, I become more and more excited for what lies ahead for this website. Let's just say that there are some very big things in the works. I cannot wait to spill the beans and share all the news with you!
