Author Jon Berg describes the place perfectly in his book Nordsjøvegen – fra Stavanger til Hidra ("The North Sea Road – from Stavanger to Hidra"):

"The scent of freshly made lapper leads you through the living rooms and into the kitchen at Hå gamle prestegard."

Lapper, thick traditional Norwegian pancakes, are a popular snack among Norwegians. They are really tasty, and pair perfectly with sweet brown cheese, or freshly made jam.

Lapper – Traditional thick pancakes
from Hå gamle prestegard

Method:

1. Whisk the egg and sugar into a light mixture. Add the sour milk and baking soda and whisk to combine.

2. Add flour and stir gently into the mixture until smooth. Do not stir too much, as the batter will then become too thin.

3. Fry immediately in oil or butter until golden brown on both sides.

Serve with sweet brown cheese or jam. Enjoy!
