Vafler – Norwegian Waffles

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.


  1. Mix together the dry ingredients.
  2. Add half of the milk to the dry mix and mix until you have a smooth batter with no lumps.
  3. Add the rest of the milk, the eggs lightly whipped, and the melted butter.
  4. Let the batter rest for at least 15 minutes before cooking.
  5. 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!

    Hi Linda,

    I like the looks of your blog and I’ll be trying your first recipe for the waffles too! They look delicious. Great job being on TasteSpotting with your first recipe (that’s how I found your blog. I’ll be checking in to see what else you have coming up. I live in Texas by way of Colorado. I have been wanting to start my own food blog, but haven’t done it yet, but I spend hours looking at them and trying recipes. I literally have thousands of cookbooks, so I have plenty of ideas, just need to take the first step. Kudos to you for doing so!

      Hi Michelle!

      Thank you for your comment!
      I was so excited to see that my first post made it to TasteSpotting, I almost got a bit surprised haha.

      I loved visiting Colorado when I lived in the states, but unfortunately never made it all the way to Texas!
      That’s exactly how I was! I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a year or two now, but kept putting it off and saving bunch of recipes. Decided to take the big step and give it a try 🙂
