Whenever we have excess milk in the fridge or Pabbi or I feel like taking the time, we make Skonsur (singular skonsa), which are a thick pancake like bread substitute.

2 cups plain flour (sifted)
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp lyftiduft/baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups Milk

Method:Mix together all dry ingredients, add the eggs and milk, beat till smooth, more milk may be needed for the right consistency.
Pour soup ladle size dollops on greased pancake skillets(seen in this image or frying pan at a medium heat and cook on both sides. Desired size is plate size and thickness is about 1cm (3/8″).
Use instead of bread in sandwiches, or serve warm with slices of cheese or butter, I love having skonsur with cheese and ham for lunches at uni. So yummy and filling.

  1. Oh, the sticky Skonsur πŸ™‚

    Me thinks you forgot to add the fatty elements in the recipe. Butter would be best, but vegetable oil can also be used.

    Apart from that important addition, this is a good reicipe. I actually had to add half a cup of flour to make it thick enough to become Skonsur, and not Icelandic pancakes.

    Thanks for sharing.
