Categories     Dessert

Time 1h30m

Yield 32 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 cups milk, heated to boiling
hot fat (for frying)
powdered sugar (optional)

Steps:

  • In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and sugar. Mix in the butter and hot milk until a stiff dough is formed.
  • Turn out onto a lightly oiled surface and knead until smooth and cooled.
  • Divide dough into four parts. Shape each into a ball. Divide each into 4 parts to make 16, then divide each of the resulting balls into 2 parts to total 32.
  • Cover baking sheets with waxed paper and dust the waxed paper lightly with flour.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out each part of dough to make a thin round about 8 inches in diameter. Place the rounds on the floured waxed paper. Chill 30 minutes.
  • In a skillet, heat 2 inches of fat to 375° to 400°F Vegetable shortening or corn or peanut oil may be used but the authentic fat is lard.
  • Fold the dough rounds, one at the time, into quarters, and, with a sharp-tipped knife, make little cuts and cut-outs in the dough. (Remember the paper snowflakes we cut out as kids?).
  • Fry the bread rounds, until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side. Remove and drain on paper toweling.
  • When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
  • Store in an airtight container in a cool place or in the freezer until ready to serve.

  • Add in 1/4 cup of boiling water and mix everything. Cover and set it aside so that the flour absorbs the water. (I used some of our Indian cooking methods here)
  • After 5 mins or so the mixture will be a bit cold i.e. when you are able to handle the flour mixture with hand, knead it to a semi stiff dough. One can use a drop of oil to just grease it at the end if required.
  • Divide dough into equal size balls (7-8). Roll each ball into a 4 inch circle and 1/2 inch thick. Prick the tops of the rolled bread with a fork.

15 TOP TRADITIONAL ICELANDIC FOOD RECIPES TO DISCOVER

From ourbigescape.com
  • Humarsúpa — Iceland Creamy Langoustine. This Icelandic recipe is a traditional favorite, creamy soup in Iceland that can be found served at restaurants throughout the country.
  • Icelandic Baked Fish. Fish is hugely popular in Iceland. The country is literally surrounded by water. This classic Icelandic recipe is all about the delicious baked fish that can be found gracing the tables at many homes throughout the country.
  • Fiskibollur — Icelandic Fish Balls. Made from a firm white fish, onion, salt, eggs and flour, fiskibollur is more of a croquette than a meatball. Fried in butter with a crisp shell and a light, airy yet creamy interior.
  • Icelandic Fish and ‘Chips’ Fish and chips have become quite a thing in Reykjavík. You’ll notice that their ‘chips’ are not deep-fried – this makes producing fish and chips at home a lot easier as you only have to concentrate on the fish – and that they use skyr, an Icelandic product a bit like yogurt, as the base for their version of tartare sauce.
  • Ofnsteiktur fiskur með lauk og osti — Icelandic Fish Casserole. I quite often bake my fish this way. Easy & simple, nothing fancy, but we like the result.
  • Hangikjot – Smoked Lamb. The word “hang” in the name means hanging lamb on the smoking birch wood. However, this Icelandic food dish uses another smoking method: a mixture of dried sheep dung and hay, called “Tadreykt”.
  • Kjötsúpa — Icelandic Lamb Stew. Cold nights are perfect for enjoying Icelandic Lamb Stew with meltingly tender meat. Searing then slow-roasting in the oven brings out a rich and savory meaty flavor.
  • Icelandic Breaded Lamb Chops with Spiced Red Cabbage. This easy Icelandic recipe of breaded lamb chop. Serve alongside a big bowl of homemade spiced red cabbage for a delicious treat.
  • Blueberry & Juniper Berry Marinated Leg of Lamb. In Iceland it’s very common to marinate lamb with blueberries, as they can be found growing all over the countryside.
  • Rúgbrauð / Rugbraud — Icelandic Rye Bread. Rugbraud can be prepared in one of two ways by the Icelandic settlers: overnight baking in a pot set over dying embers, or by burying it close to a hot spring and steaming it, which earned it the moniker Hverabraud, or hot spring bread.
