Yes, the eggs are left out.  This comes from a book called the Viking Cookbook, 
published in Oslo, by SFG Books.  ISBN 82-04-06495-0. I got my copy some years 
ago when a touring Viking exhibition came to Los Angeles.  It is published in 
English, and the measurements are English, not American.  Here is the recipe 
from the book:

Bilberry Pancake [serves 4]

250 ml flour or 100 ml graham flour + 150 ml plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
600 ml milk
3 eggs
2 tbsp butter
200 ml bilberries

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees C. 

Whisk the pancake batter without the butter and stir in the bilberries.

Melt the butter in a roasting tin and pour in the batter.

Bake on the middle shelf until the pancake is light brown, approx. 20 to
25 minutes.  Slice and serve with jam or stewed fruit.
