Love both.
Will have my Semla when I get home. Blueberry jam and lightly whipped cream on pancakes. Or just a squeeze of lemon with a dusting of sugar.

Too right!
Sometimes its the simple things that appeal.
Plus the ingredients shouldn't be on Swedens list of products not available.

Flour, salt, eggs, milk, water, butter, sugar or lemons are not available in Sweden?

Lemons can be a bit of a luxury for many Swedes wink.gif
But like I said most of those ingredients look like they can be sourced fairly easily.
(luckily butter is available again in Sweden)

However those who wish to make the American type of pancakes, may struggle to find butter milk if they wish to make authentic styled ones.

Yeah a year or 2 ago, there was a severe butter shortage that lasted for a good amount of time.
Which resulted in all shelves being empty at food stores for real butter.
