Norwegian Griddle Cakes with Christmas Syrup / Sveler med Julesirup

This kind of griddle cakes are called Svele (plural: sveler indefinite: svelene) in Norway and it is batter based cake. By size and texture they may bear some resemblance to American pancakes, but are usually eaten for afternoon coffee or as a snack between meals, served with butter and either sugar or Norwegian brown cheese or with sour cream and jam. Baking soda or salt of hartshorn are used as rising agent in sveler, which give this cake its characteristic flavour. Recipes may differ slightly according to region or to house recipes.

Traditional Norwegian Potato Cakes / Potetlomper

Before the American way of eating hot dogs, with the frankfurter in a bun reached Norway sometimes in the late fifties, it was potato cakes like these we wrapped around the sausages here. Some people still like to eat frankfurter in this way. Some even make a “special”, wrap the frankfurter in a potato cake and put it in a bun.

This batter will keep in the fridge if you do not want to cook all the cakes at once. The cakes are great with jam, whipped cream or ice cream. Calculate about 7 plates per serving. If you are baking the cakes with graham flour, they works well for starters or as crepes as well.
