Norwegian Pancakes!

Adrian made these “Fantastisk” pancakes for me this morning which he calls “Lapper.” I guess they have dinner pancakes and dessert pancakes here and they are different recipes!


The recipe can be found here at Sons of Norway. 😛

See recipe below with my notes.

Also, if you want to try it in true norwegian style, go to your local store and find some brown cheese (Brunost), a delicious norewegian cheese that is sweet, salty, and thick. Serve pancakes warm with some brown cheese on top and a little bit of jam.




175 g (6 ounces, 3/4 cup) butter (Melted)
2 1/4 dl (1 cup) sugar
4 eggs
1 liter (quart) buttermilk (We used Kefir instead because they don’t have buttermilk here)
about 600 g (1 1/3 pounds, 10 dl, 4 1/4 cups) flour
pinch of baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. hornsalt (a.k.a Baker’s Ammonia, DO NOT SMELL THIS STUFF :-P)
1 tsp. vanilla sugar (1/2 tsp. extract)

From The Norwegian Kitchen

Buttermilk pancakes, pancakes, potato cakes and raised pancakes are served with coffee throughout Norway. The latter are served on ferry boats in western Norway.

Melt the butter, add sugar and beat in the eggs and milk. Combine the dry ingredients and add, mixing well. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Fry in a small amount of butter on a griddle. Serve with butter and sugar. (Brown Cheese and Strawberry Jam!)
