1 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar

*Lingonberries are tart red berries that grow wild in the mountains of Scandinavia. The preserves are available at specialty food shops.

  2. Heat griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat; brush with melted butter. Stir batter.

(Brush griddle with additional butter as needed to prevent sticking.) Serve pancakes with preserves and sour cream.
