Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the first 4 ingredients together.
  2. Then add the flour, mixing thoroughly and adding a little extra flour if the dough seems too moist.
  3. If using a pancake griddle, divide dough into egg-sized balls(if using a large lefse grill, larger balls will be needed.).
  4. Chill the dough-balls for 30 minutes.
  5. Roll out each ball on a pastry cloth until very thin.
  6. Bake on a griddle or a lefse grill set at 400 - 500 degrees, until small brown spots appear on the surface. Then, turn and bake the other side until spots appear.
  7. Cover with a towel or waxed paper after baking, to keep soft.
  8. Serve buttered, and sprinkled with brown or granulated sugar.
