pancakes. The round indentations possess a 3 1/4 inch diameter and so are 1/4 inch deep. Regular pancake batter works fine and turning them is simple even if they puff up quite high, just don't overload each compartment - about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoon of batter is plenty.
There is certainly just one recipe included with the Nordic Ware Scandinavian Silver Dollar Pancake Pan - Buttermilk Pancakes - therefore if specialty pancakes are desired, recipes must be obtained elsewhere (many are available on-line.) I've used the pan for blueberry, sweet potato and sour dough pancakes with positive results. And, as with every non-stick pans, avoid the use of metal utensils or harsh scouring pads on top - and make sure to keep heat medium-low, never on high. And, even though pan is non-stick, brush with oil before each use.
I received this pan being a gift and wondered if it could be relegated for the back from the cabinet, taken out once a year, but I've been using it at least once per week to get ready both pancakes and eggs. The compartment is exactly the right size to create a perfect round circle of scrambled eggs with an English muffin breakfast sandwich.
The Nordic Ware Scandinavian Silver Dollar Pancake Pan also works well for mini-crepes. Tiny desserts certainly are a favorite because the indulgence is small. I oftentimes tried hazelnut spread since the filling and added a small scoup of vanilla bean frozen treats for the plate (whipped cream works well, too) and drizzled somewhat chocolate sauce outrageous plus it was obviously a tiny confection that nobody at dinner could refuse. Seconds? Why don't you!
As with all Nordic Ware merchandise, Nordic Ware Scandinavian Silver Dollar Pancake Pan is made in America. It is a top quality pan and with good care, should last a lifetime.
