With Friday being Waffle Day and my facebook feed being overrun with pictures of waffles, I just couldn’t help myself and decided to make some waffles too! Besides, I figured with company coming over that day for dinner it’d be a nice treat for afterwards 🙂 In Norway waffles is primarily a sweet treat or dessert, not a breakfast food like I got used to it being in the states.
- 4.2oz flour.
- 4 tablespoons sugar.
- 1 teaspoon baking powder.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar.
- 10oz milk.
- 2 eggs.
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted.
- Mix together the dry ingredients.
- Add half of the milk to the dry mix and mix until you have a smooth batter with no lumps.
- Add the rest of the milk, the eggs lightly whipped, and the melted butter.
- Let the batter rest for at least 15 minutes before cooking.
- Make the waffles in the iron until they’re golden brown.
Usually helps to put a wee bit of butter or oil in the iron to make sure it doesn’t stick!
Now with the last step comes the last detail, to make Norwegian waffles you need a different waffle iron than Belgian waffles. Norwegian waffles are a lot thinner than Belgian, and most irons they come in a heart shape rather than the squares too. When I lived in the states I had this waffle iron:Chef’s Choice 830 WafflePro Heart Waffle Iron (affiliate link!). Even though that’s an affiliate link, I gotta admit I kind of miss it haha. It was a great little iron, and even had a handy alarm that gives you a beep when it’s done. Something that came really in handy when you get preoccupied with a adorable little 3 year old kitchen helper! 🙂
But that’s really all there is to it, mix the batter, cook them in the iron, and tada! Personally I usually have them with strawberry or raspberry jam, but there are also quite a few folks who use brun ost (Literally translated to Brown cheese, a goat cheese like this.)
This recipe is a pretty small batch, gives you about 5 or 6 waffle plates and typically you split the plates in two 🙂 My daughter loves these and scarfs down quite a few when given free reign!
If you give it a try I’d love to hear what you think! 🙂
