17. December I had 43 blocks, so this really is progress.
28 to go!
Svele anyone ?
For dinner today we had tomato soup, and thin pancakes / crepes are a good companion to eat after tomato soup.
We are not using much milk in the cooking here, and I had none when I wanted to prepare the pancakes, but we had thick sour milk also known as Kefir, so I decided to make Svele instead.
Svele is traditional thick sour milk pancakes and they are very much used in the area my family come from, up on the north west coast.
They are semi-sweet and are often used as a cake or waffle, served with butter and sugar, sour cream and jam, or butter and traditional Norwegian brown cheese.
Today we had Svele with maple syrup after the soup - delicious!
Here is my recipe:
3 dl sugar
1 teaspoon bicarbonate (natron)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 litre sour milk
8-10 dl plain wheat flour
Beat eggs and sugar white, add sour milk, bicarbonate and baking powder and add flour until you have a thin dough / thick liquid.
Let the dough rest a little while before you start the baking. Bake until brown on one side, turn the Svele with a spatula and bake on the other side.
Brew coffee or tea and enjoy your Svele :-)
