...which is basically really thick pancakes made with kefir - soured cream.

This was one of my favourite breakfasts when I was little and stayed over at my grandmother's, the best mormor there could ever be! You can also use yogurt in the recipe if you can't find kefir (in the UK, they usually sell it in big supermarkets in the Polish section, I got mine from Tesco)

Serve lapper with butter and syrup, peanutbutter, honey, or jam of any kind! I always had them with strawberry jam, and so that is my favourite. Today I had to "settle" for apricot jam, and I tried one with butter and agave syrup too, mmmm :D

I halved the original recipe which you can see in my grandmother's beautiful handwriting, and I got eight lapper pluss a small "skrapekake" or "scrap cake" as we call it in Norwegian.

Six ingredients, anyone can do it, challenge accepted?

(Makes 8, about 100 calories each with all sugar and not sweetners)

2 eggs, separated
2 tbsp sugar
25g butter (I used Flora light as always!), melted
1 small cup/200ml kefir (soured milk, or yogurt)
1/2 small cup/100g flour
1 small tsp with bicarbonate of soda

- Whisk egg yolks and sugar together. Then add the butter, kefir and flour together. Lastly, whisk the egg whites until they're starting to form peaks.

- Heat a small non-stick frying pan and fry lapper out of almost a ladleful of the batter. Cook for a few minutes on each side. Once the top side has gone all bubbly, flip!

- Keep warm by placing half a kitchen towel on a plate, place lapper on the plate and fold over the rest of the towel. They can keep out of the fridge if you intend to eat them over the course of a day (which you probably will! I only have a couple left and it's not even noon!), if you want to save some for the next day though, place them in the fridge. You can keep them there for about two days. They taste way better when they're fresh from the pan though!

- If you're feeling rebellious, fry them in a little bit of extra butter, mmmmm! It wont add a lot of badness, just a bit of extra goodness!

I hope you are having a wonderful start to your weekend!

  1. Dette ser nydelig ut! Elsker pannekaker,lefser, vafler, lapper, rislapper ja you name it! Nå fikk jeg plutselig litt lyst på rislapper... med jordbærsyltetøy og et glass iskald melk! Mmm^^


    1. Skal ikke stoppe deg jeg ;) Disse tok meg tilbake til barndommen. Nystekte lapper, eller sveler som noen kaller det, meg rørte bær er så godt! Jeg brukte halvt om halvt med brunt sukker og sukrin gold i røren, men går sikkert fint med bare sukrin gold :) Magien er i kefiren!
      Iskald melk, nam! Du sier alle de rette tingene :D Kos deg masse ^ ^ x
      (Er det meg eller ser ^ ^ x ut som en sau? :P)
