This recipe is from Finland where pancakes are the proper traditional supper for the eve of the Birth of St. John the Baptist, June 24. A bonfire on "St. John's Eve" is a another tradition in many countries. This batter can be mixed ahead and carried in Mason jar. As the flames are just glowing embers, use a long-handled griddle to make your sweet pancakes. Served with fresh, ripe red raspberries, these Finnish Pancakes are sure to make your bonfire a success.


Beat salt and sugar with eggs. Add milk and flour alternately. Stir in butter. Fry on hot griddle. Serve with ripe red raspberries or berries of your choice.
