Finnish Oven Pancake

I am so lucky to have such a large extended family and, even though we are spread all over, Canada we manage to stay in touch and share recipes! This is a family recipe shared by my Aunt Rita who is as Finnish as they come. I adore her stories and laughter every time we get a chance to catch up. I like this take on the Finnish pancake because it is quick and easy to put together, and because they are cooked in two cast-iron frying pans in the oven no one is standing at the stove flipping. This is the Finnish take on the German pancake and my tradition for serving it is topped with a wild northern Ontario blueberry sauce.
