I'm one of those people who loves quick and easy dinners, preferably budget friendly as well, as I'm a student (but it doesn't hurt to think about food budget in general, regardless of income). One of my go-to dinners are Norwegian pancakes as I mainly just need a few staples to make it.
4 dl all purpose flour
6 dl milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar
Butter, for greasing the pan
Put all the pancake ingredients in a bowl and combine until a smooth batter. Let the batter rest for at least 10 minutes before using it.
Melt around 1 tablespoon butter in the pan and add around one soup-ladle full of batter in the pan, and rotate the pan so the batter spread out properly. Flip the pancake when you see it's turning a bit brown/golden underneath, or the top seems a bit more "solid" (in lack of better explanations). Cook the other side until it has gotten a littl bit of colour and remove the pancake from the pan. Repeat process until the batter is used up. Only add more butter to the pan when you see it's needed. Norwegian pancakes are a lot thinner than the American pancakes, so don't panic because you think the batter is liquidy or the pancakes a bit thin.
A lot of people in Norway use blueberry jam or bacon as a condiment to pancakes, so feel free to pick and choose to your liking.
