Ah, the smell of freshly made waffles, makes me do somersaults . Well, in my head that is… I’m not cray cray, I promise. The smell of waffles makes me think of the summers spent in Norway and walking down the streets of Grimstad By (Grimstad Town) and seeing young students selling waffles to collect money for school trips and various activities. Such a great way to earn money. Luring people into buying waffles by making them in the streets so that you are bound to smell them and have the urge to buy a couple.

Note: You will need a waffle iron to make this recipes.I have seen some shops that sell silicon molds for waffles, but I have never used them, so can’t say that they work for this recipe or not.


400 ml flour

350 ml milk

2 tablespoons sugar

2 eggs

4-5 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

1 teaspoon cardamom(optional)

Yields about 10 waffles.


Add flour, sugar, baking powder and vanilla sugar and milk to a bowl and mix. Start with one egg at a time.


Add melted butter.


Heat up the waffle iron and brush a bit of butter on it so that the waffle doesn’t stick.


Using a ladle, pour in the batter and using the bottom of the ladle spread the batter out.


Cook until golden brown. Serve with jam, chocolate spread, whipped cream with fruits or even a scoop of ice cream.
