Danish Elderflower Pancakes - Hyldeblomst Pandekager


Makes 6 pancakes


6 stalks of elderflowers

Pancake batter:
1. 125g flour or white whole wheat flour (1 cup)
2. 250 ml skimmed fresh milk (1 cup)
3. 3 eggs
4. 3 TBS sugar or elderflower cordial
5. 1/2 tsp vanilla powder (optional)
6. 1 TBS cooking oil or combination of butter and cooking oil for frying


1. In a mixing bowl, add flour, vanilla powder and sugar.

2. Add milk, eggs and elderflower cordial and mix well with a whisk or a handmixer.

3. Let it rest for 30 minutes in the fridge if possible.

4. Look through the elderflowers that you picked and shake them off the insects.

5. Heat pan with oil under medium heat (no. 5 or 6 on my stove).

5. Dip one elderflower at a time into the pancake batter and place it on the pan.

6. Continue until the pan is full. If you wish to make a pancake per stalk of elderflower, don't overcrowd the pan.

7. When the pancake turns golden, flip over and fry the other side until golden.

8. Serve with maple syrup and berries if desired :-)

Additional Information:

Daddy FECS mentioned that elderflowers can be made into pancakes. A friend's mom made this for them when he was a child. After making elderflower cordial for a few years, we made this for the first time today. It was a success. Daddy FECS it tasted just like he had it as a child. Today we ate it with maple syrup. They ate all up, with one left that we saved for the play date at a friend's place that afternoon.

This morning we went to pick the elderflowers just 5 minutes from where we live to make the pancakes. We made a double batch. I added also one teaspoon of brewer's yeast for more nutrition and one teaspoon of ground flaxseeds.

Flip over to the other side once it turns golden (some of them turned to brown here)

Remove excess oil using paper towel

Also remove oil on the top side of the pancakes.

Now it's done :-)
