Description Edit

Some traditional Icelandic desserts can be difficult to make in America because they require ingredients not easily available. But here´s one recipe that is very popular and very traditional and very easy. Actually, we would rather have pancakes for a coffee party than for dessert - but they are a delicious dessert also.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Whisk eggs and milk together.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl and mix egg mixture into it, until the batter is absolutely smooth.
  3. Add Sugar and vanilla or lemon extract.
  4. Melt the butter in the pancake pan but do not let it change color. Add to batter when melted. Pour a couple of tablespoons of batter on one side of the pan and turn it around until the batter covers the surface. These crepes should be as thin as possible.
  5. When the crepe is golden brown, turn it and cook for a few seconds on the other side. Turn on a plate to cool and cook the rest of the crepes. Spread some jam on the center of the cooled crepes, add a large dollop of whipped cream, fold in half and then fold again to make a triangle. Arrange overlapped on a plate and serve.
