Kropsua is the Finnish version of a Dutch Baby Pancake



50 grams all-purpose flour

80 milliliters whole milk

1 egg

15 grams sugar

1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt

¼ teaspoon vanilla

5 grams butter


For the strawberries:

1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

Sweetener of choice (I like a tablespoon of sugar or maple syrup)

¼ teaspoon vanilla

A squeeze of fresh lemon or orange juice added in is nice and sunny 


Toss it all together just prior to starting the kropsua


Place the flour in a batter bowl or mixing bowl. In another bowl, whisk the milk, egg, sugar, salt and vanilla until blended. Whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture until mixture is smooth. Let this mixture rest while oven heats up; this allows the gluten to relax. Place two 4-inch skillets in the oven. Heat the oven to 425F. When the oven comes to temperature, remove skillets from oven and divide butter among them. Place back in the oven for a minute to let bubbling of butter subside. Pour rested batter evenly into hot skillets. Bake for 15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Dust with powdered sugar and fill with strawberries.


For the strawberries: Toss it all together just prior to starting the kropsua
