The Finnish original: Jayne Bohannon's great-great-grandmother made a poofy pancake called suomalainen pannukakku, like a cross between a Dutch baby and a French clafoutis.
The Rockies remake: Jayne adds a berry swirl and fresh fruit on top. "My great-great-grandmother started a Finnish sauna and spa in Berkeley. Family members gathered there for her wonderful meals, which included this pancake," said Jayne.
