Norwegian Lefse or Potatoe Cakes Recipe
  • 3 cups of cold mashed potatoes
  • 6 Tbsp margarine
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 and ½ cups flour
  1. Mix the above ingredients together and knead.
  2. It’s important that your mashed potatoes are cold.
  3. You may need more or less flour than listed, it will depend on the consistency of your potatoes.
  4. Add flour until you have a nice, stiff dough.
  5. Preheat an electric skillet too 400 F. Skillet must be hot. Do not grease.
  6. On a floured surface begin rolling out dough. Dust with flour as needed to keep from sticking.
  7. Roll nice and thin {about ⅛ inch} and then “cut” out in circles.
  8. You want them to be large enough so they can be rolled up when eaten. Think crepe size or just a bit smaller.
  9. Take potatoe cakes and place on hot skillet. No need to worry about excess flour, it will keep them from sticking.
  10. Cook until light brown spots form, then flip and cook the same on the other side.
  11. Remove potatoe cakes and place on a damp towel to cool.
