Finnish pancakes are something between an USonian pancake and a crepe. Crepes are supposed to be so thin one can almost see through them, paperthin and dry things that need the sauce. Finnish (and Swedish) pancakes look the same, but are thicker. There is no yeast or soda in the dough, so they don't rise. they are supposed to be about 1/8 of an inch, a couple of millimeters thick. And eaten with jam, usually. Strawberry jam or mixed forest berry (blueberries, raspberries) jam.
