Sunday morning at the cabin means svele, the thick fluffy Norwegian pancakes Mr. Snow made for us on our takke. They are made to rise with hjortetakksalt or hornsalt, literally salt from deer antlers, in fact ammonium carbonate which used to be extracted from the antlers. Today you can replace it with baking powder but the authentic recipe calls for that slight whiff of ammonia!

    Somehow my guess is tulipgirl preferred this over the traditional fishy breakfast 😉
