Please does any one have a tried and true, easy gluten free recipe for Lefse? I have never made it before but have had it before I got sick. Now would like to try to make some. Also can I cook this on my pancake griddle?

Thank you,

Grump

I make this recipe every year and it turns out pretty well. It doesn't keep very long, but my kids usually eat it long before it has a chance to get dried out.

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 hang of it, but you'll get into a rhythm.

Thank you so much. I am going to give this a try. I use to get it from my ex-mother inlaw

( Very sweet lady ) Then when she passed away one of my daughter tried to make some but it never turned out. So maybe I can do what they cant, :rolleyes:

Again thank you,

I made this last night. What a pain in the back side. But I think it turned out pretty good. I will have my ex try some tonight when she brings our son home. Her Mom is the one that use to make it and I loved it. Have not had any since I got sick so I really don't remember exactly what it taste like. Funny how that works. You know you liked it before but then after awhile you wonder is it the same or not, <_< .

Now I have seen you picture on here several time and am wondering what is it you are cooking over the campfire?

Thanks again for the recipe,

Grump

I'm cooking pancakes over the fire. I love making breakfast while we're camping!

I'm glad your lefse turned out. It is a LOT of work. Even if it isn't exactly the same as the gluteny version it's still yummy.

My ex tried it last night when she brought our son home. She said it was good, taste like lefse, and she could not tell the difference. Though she said it was a little think. Hard to get it rolled out right with my rolling pin. Next time I will borrow hers. It is the one her Mom used and is made just for this purpose.

Again thank you,

Grump

    Hi, Thanks for your answer! Unfortunately I have to follow the MAOI diet for as long as I'm taking the MAOI, so essentially nobody's going to be inviting me round to dinner from now on… This is a bit of a shock. I don't really have any clear-cut symptoms that I would've considered worth going to the GP about. I mean I'm always tired and I have a bit of IBS and so on but generally I put that down to the other things wrong with me and the medication I have to take for them (mostly the bi
    Thanks Posterboy, that was interesting information.  I believe that I had read something elsewhere about tetracycline, at least, being used instead of, or along with, Dapsone for severe or refractory cases of DH. Unfortunately, even if I had medical insurance (which I do not), and had a regular doctor who was even willing to recognize and accept my condition for what it is, I don't know what kind of luck I would have in persuading that hypothetical doctor to give me a particular and non-sta
