Fluffy Swedish Pancakes
Loved it! Added teaspoon of vanilla. Served with a little bit of jelly rolled in it. And a teeny tiny bit of maple syrup, but it really wasn't necessary. Update: we made these again and filled with a cream cheese/apricot jelly mixture. YUM! Didn't take much of the mixture. Served without syrup. Also made it on our large electric griddle - could make more at a time. Poured 1/4 cup of mixture and gently spread with back of spoon. Didn't need much spreading because the batter is so thin - really just did it to round them out a little.

Boston Cream Pie II
Loved the cake and the custard. Having made this twice, not sure about the chocolate. Might try the one below from a Tuxedo cake I've made a few times, found on Pinterest. Followed one reviewer who suggested upping the serving size of the cake to 18 and dividing the batter between two 9" pans. Used insulating strips to keep them from humping in the middle. ***Remember to line the pans with parchment. Mine stuck horribly. The cake wasn't so pretty because of that, but it sure was good! Might try this chocolate topping next time: For the chocolate topping: 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped ½ cup heavy whipping cream ¼ cup light corn syrup 2 tsp. vanilla extract To make the frosting, add the heavy cream to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whip on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar and continue to whip until thoroughly combined and stiff peaks form. Be careful not to over-beat!
