I was so lucky to grow up with my grandparents living in our home with us. They came to live with us while I was still in grade school and my Grandma Marion was able to pass on some of her Swedish recipes to me.
Once I learned how to make her aggkaka- a delicious egg/custard pancake that is cut into squares and served with lemon juice and powdered sugar, I would often make it on the weekends. A lot of times we would get out our old rotary beater to beat the eggs and other ingredients together. It is a simple recipe with only 6 ingredients but seems magical when it comes out of the oven all puffed up!
I am a big breakfast person and have always loved a big breakfast. Make this delicious, updated aggkaka a part of your weekend/holiday traditions. If you have leftovers they make a great weekday breakfast treat as well.
I remodeled this recipe by adding in maple syrup instead of the granulated sugar and replacing the all purpose flour with my own mixture of gluten free flours. The recipe may also be made the traditional way, which I will note below. My mom also makes it often with whole wheat flour.
I hope you enjoy this breakfast treat from my Grandma Marion. She would love it!
Grandma's Swedish Aggkaka:
1/4 cup coconut oil)
2 cups full fat coconut milk
1 cup gluten free flour mix
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or 1/4 cup organic sugar)
1 teaspoon sea salt
Gluten Free Flour Mix:
2 cups brown rice flour
2/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup arrowroot starch
Mix these ingredients together in a medium bowl with a whisk. Use 1 cup in the recipe above and save the rest for another recipe.
1. Heat the oven to 450F.
2. Place coconut oil in a 13x9 rectangular baking pan.
3. Place pan in the oven to melt the coconut oil. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't scorch. Take the pan out of the oven once the butter has melted.
4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the ingredients in the order listed. You may use a large whisk or a hand mixer to mix the ingredients together thoroughly.
5. Pour the egg mixture into the pan with the coconut oil.
6. Bake at 450F for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
The aggkaka will be puffed when it first comes out of the oven, but it will fall as it cools.
I hope that you enjoy this yummy breakfast treat with your family soon!
If you love breakfast, pass this on to a breakfast-loving friend!
