Description Edit

Thick pancakes

Skonsur - Thick pancakes-pan-fried bread

The word "skonsa" (the singular form of "skonsur") is the same word as "scone" in English. We Icelanders use the word to refer to a kind of thick pancake. The taste is similar to American breakfast pancakes, but we serve them differently.

Serve them cold with any kind of topping that is good with bread: cheese, slices of meat, salads, etc. or make a sandwich-cake: make a mayonnaise/sour cream-based salad (shrimp, tuna, egg, salmon, etc.), and layer with whole pancakes.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Mix together the dry ingredients.
  2. Add the eggs and melted margarine, and thin with milk. Stir until smooth.
  3. Pour on a greased skillet and fry on both sides at low temperature. Cakes should be like thick pancakes.
