This Lefse recipe is an old family favourite. A classic Norwegian treat.
  • 5 Cups White Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 2 Teaspoons Cardamon
  • ½ Cup White Sugar
  • 1 Cup Marg/Butter (softened)
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ Cup Rogers Golden syrup
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • Filling: Equal portions of butter and icing sugar with cinnamon to taste
  1. Mix the dry ingredients together. 2. Add in the butter and mix until blended. 3. Mix sour cream and syrup together 4. Beat eggs with whisk and add to the sour cream and syrup 5. Add a little milk to bring the liquid up to 2 cups. 6. Add the liquid to the dry mixture blending gently. Flour the counter (be careful to add flour as sparingly as possibly as too much flour will make the lefse dry) and roll the dough into a log and then cut into sections. 7. Make into flat pancake shapes and fry on low to medium heat on a dry pan. Be sure to monitor the temperature assuring that you don't burn. It should only be a few minutes per side. Allow to cool completely before adding the filling. When completly cooled, spread a generous layer of filling, top with another lefse and then cut into desired shapes/sizes. Enjoy!
