Step 4: Making the pannukakku

For this step, you have several choices for baking your pannukakku:

  • Use your oven's baking sheet:
    • Line your oven tray with baking paper, then place your dough on it.
  • Use an ovenproof dish:
    • Butter your dish so that the pannukakku doesn't stick when unmolded. Then pour the dough into the dish.

Bake for 30 minutes at 200°C, or until golden brown on top.

Step 5: Tasting

Once cooked, remove the pannukakku from the oven and leave to rest for a few minutes before cutting into slices.

Serve the pannukakku warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar, jam, honey or fresh fruit to taste.

Bon appétit!
