Celebrate Pancake Day, Scandi Style.

All day we will be offering FREE COFFEE with any pancakes purchased to celebrate Shrove Tuesday or Fettisdagen as it’s known in Sweden … Breakfast, Lunch or dinner!

In Sweden, pancakes are traditionally served every Thursday as a dessert after yellow split pea and ham hock soup during the winter months. Although at KuPP we break from tradition and serve them every day for breakfast, we still serve our pancakes the proper Swedish way – delightfully thin and deliciously sweet.

Join us for a traditional Swedish pancake on Fettisdagen and we’ll throw in a free coffee to sweeten the deal.

What better way to enjoy a Swedish pancake than with Swedish favourites, lingonberry or cloudberry jam and whipped cream! Lingonberries are an essential part of a wide range of Swedish dishes, both sweet and savoury, and lingonberry jam is a pantry staple in most Swedish households. Perhaps less well known here in the UK, cloudberries have a particular place of honour in Swedish cooking which is why they’re often used in desserts served at special occasions.

Here at KuPP, we love celebrating our favourite Scandi ingredients and dishes and we can’t wait to share all that we love about Swedish pancakes with you!
