On the 3rd Thursday in April we in Iceland celebrate the 1st day of summer - if it is snow, rain or sun. It is a national bank holiday and my h2b wears short trousers that day - snow, rain or sun. Lummur are simmilar to pancakes but the dough is thicker. We make them round and sized like paddies. I like them with smoked salmon and fresh slices of cucumber, any type of cheese, whipped cream and strawberries, my favorite jam or just plain. They are best fresh and still warm but the keep quite well and you can take them with you. I have not tried freezing them but it should be ok.

These are very tasty! I made these gluten free with a rice flour tapioca starch mix (1 cup white rice flour to 1/2 cup tapioca starch) We ate them with unpasteurised honey. I did not add any raisins and used cream and water since we don't tend to purchase milk. The freshly ground cardamom I used added a subtle different but nice flavour.Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.

Absolutely enjoyed these pancakes ~ Great combo of the oatmeal, cardamom AND raisins, & although I was happy topping them with light corn syrup, my other half liked them with the pure maple stuff! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook tag]

Very tasty and FILLING! I love the cardamom and may add more next time. I, too, skipped the raisins, and served these with butter and maple syrup. Made for Spring 2008 PAC Orphanage.
