With the holidays just around the corner (yikes!) , I was wondering if/how I could make gluten-free krumkaker or lefse that my daughter could have. Anyone out there figured out a recipe for either of those?

Many thanks!

Here is my lefse recipe. There are others if you do a search. This tastes great, but I don't know if it holds up well in the refrigerator - I've never had it last more than a couple of hours with 4 kids and a hubby that all love lefse!


3 C riced or mashed potatoes

3 C gluten-free flour mix

5 tsp Xanthan gum (you may need even more, depending on your flour mix. If there is xanthan gum already in your mix, then adjust accordingly. This is the key to getting it to work.)

1 tsp salt

1-1/2 Tbs Sugar

1/4 C Butter or margarine

1/4 C Cream, milk or rice milk (I use rice milk and it works fine.)

Mash potatoes, measure 3 C and add butter while potatoes are hot. Mix well. Cool completely, but don't refrigerate.

Sift flour with xanthan gum 3 times.

Add cream or milk to potatoes, stir well and add 2 C of flour with sugar and salt. Mix well with spoon. Add flour a little at a time until dough is firm and smooth. It should be just firm enough to roll out, not too thick. You might have to play around with it, adding 1-2 tsp. more cream or milk and a Tbs of flour at a time until dough seems right. Depending on your flour you might have to add more liquid. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.Take about a ping-pong ball sized piece and roll out VERY thin on a well-floured board or cloth. I use potato starch or tapioca starch to flour my rolling cloth and rolling pin. Put on a hot (375-400 degrees) UNGREASED griddle (pancake griddle is great) for about 1-1/2 minutes on each side. You don't want it to brown. It takes a while to get the hand of it, but you'll get into a rhythm.

Thanks for the recipe. It's good to know I'll be able to make gluten-free lefse when I finally need it! Do you happen to know if you can make gluten-free klub too? If I can make both of these items gluten-free, then maybe my husband won't be so resistant to trying the diet along with me! :)

I've been looking for a gluten-free krumkake recipe too.... I'll be visiting my mom next week and we are going to fiddle around with a new mix I found... amaranth flour, tapioca flour, and teff. If it works I'll post the recipe :)

okay here are my results..... My flour mix didn't work well at all for Krumkake... but it made a tasty chocolate chip cookie!

I did find something that works great! Its a flower mix I found in Arizona called "Tom Sawyer" http://www.glutenfreeflour.com/

We used my grandma's recipe and just substituted this flour for regular flour....

Our recipe called for 1/2 tsp of vanilla and we added 1.5 tsp

Our recipe called for 1/2 tsp of cardamom and we made that a VERY HEAPING 1/2 tsp

Rolling the cookies was a bit of an art form, eventually we figgured it out but hey... they taste the same flat :)

Anyhow my dad didn't know the difference!

We didn't make lefse but my mom will be trying that in a few weeks I'll let you know how that turns out as well.

Thanks so much for sharing your results!!! I really appreciate it. I have heard good things about that Tom Sawyer and will try it out. Ok - so I have NO CLUE how this is spelled, and I am probably going to make my Bestemor roll over in her grave, but "Varsagoo!" :)
