There are two main groups of lefser in Norway, thin and thick.
These ones from Northern Norway are thick.

4 eggs
3 dl [0,6 pt] melted butter
6 dl [1,2 pt] sugar
3 dl [0,6 pt] melted golden syrup
6 dl [1,2 pt] cultured milk or kefir
3 teaspoons cardamom
2 tablespoons of baking powder
2 teaspoons of hartshorn salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1½ kg [3,3 lb] of flour


[1]  Wisk the eggs lightly in a bowl. Melt butter and syrup and mix with the milk/kefir and wisk it into the eggs. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

[2] Set the dough cool till the next day or for at least one hour letting it set a little. This will make the dough easier to roll out.

[3] Roll out round lefse and fry them on a griddle or in a dry non-stick frying pan. Be careful not to use to too high heat, these lefse burn easily.

[4] Cool on a grid.

[5] Butter one lefse with good dairy butter and put another on top. Freeze or enjoy while fresh.
