In Sweden our all purpose flour is a nice wheat flour, that is nearest to yours and it should be low in gluten too compared to bread flour. A friend brought a bag of her favorite AP flour from the use and that contain wheat and barely, I cant remember the brand. Maybe I should mix it up or I might have to buy cheaper flour, theytend to contain even less gluten.
Mine became like bread dough, I have this problem with a lot of recipe lately.

Scottish pancakes are like Americans, they contain cream of tartar.
Swedish pancakes are thin, very thing unless you make them in the oven. Check it out here http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...kes-96637.html the recipe is correct minus the sugar and I have posted how to cook them in the thread.

American all-purpose flour does not contain barley,just wheat. And pancakes do not contain cream of tartar. If your friends use those products that way, they are not typical.

Many of the old American pancake and biscuit recipes call for baking soda and cream of tartar instead of baking powder.

For a quick baking powder substitute you can use 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar for each teaspoon of baking powder called for in a recipe.

You can make a larger batch of baking powder substitute by combining 1 part corn starch, 1 part baking soda and 2 parts cream of tartar. The cornstarch helps to keep the mixture from absorbing moisture and becoming lumpy. Use this mixture 1 for 1 in any recipe calling for baking powder.

Here is one example of an old pancake recipe.

Oh, right, I forgot about that. Like I said, not typical

Well that is what I thought to when it came to AP flour, but her really cheap one did.

I said SCOTTISH pancakes contains cream of tartar, at least in the old recipes I have, they are very fluffy.

And the older year it was baking soda and vinegar. Doesn't get any easier and as simple things usually are very productive.

It looks like you're saying that American pancakes, like Scottish ones, contain cream of tartar. Did I misunderstand you?

Another great pancake recipe:

BOth technique, and ingredients change in his recipe. They come out light, and tender, but with a more earthy flavor than my original recipe, with crispy edges and a wonderful breakfast sausage accent. And just so you know, pork fat contains less cholesterol than does butter.

Buckwheat pancakes with Sausage accents.
Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
3/4 tsp. salt
3 tbs. dark corn syrup
2 medium eggs
1 tbs. double acting baking powder
1 1/3 cup milk
2 tbs. malt powder
1lb. pork breakfast sausage

Fry sausage in the same pan you will use to make the pancakes. Drain and reserve the sausage grease.

Combine all of the pancake ingredients in a mixing bowl with a whisk, leaving small lumps. Add 3 tbs. sausage grease to the batter, and fold it in.

Put a couple tbs. of the remaining sausage grease on the skillet, over medium-high heat. Put 1/4 cup of batter on the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles start to poop on top. Flip, and cook until golder on the other side.

If you run out of sausage grease for each set of pancakes, you can substitue butter, or baclkn grease to get the crispy edges.

Serve with real maple syrup, or buckwheat honey. Of course, you can add fresh berries of your choice to the batter. and maybe even a little rubbed sage.

These pancakes are also great with fried ham, fried bologna, fried Spam, and of course crispy/soft bacon.

Beverage of choice (at least for me) a glass of pineapple juice, or grapefruit juice.

Enjoy.

Fluffy pancakes....

Many good recipes posted. I like to separate the egg and beat the white to soft peaks and fold into the batter. As a kid, I'd make really thin Bisquick pancakes, saturated in butter and black raspberry preserves. Then roll them like an enchilada.
