Easy Norwegian heart shaped waffle brunch

This is such an easy recipe, perfect for a weekend brunch party – or just to treat yourself! Compared to its Belgian and American counterparts, the Norwegian waffle is heart shaped, thin and, soft. For a healthier option, it can be made with no sugar and wholemeal flour. However, it is absolutely best when made with the recipe below – served with fresh berries, jam and creme fraiche or just with the Norwegian speciality ‘brunost’, which is a caramel flavoured goats cheese.

You will need a Norwegian style waffle iron – definitely worth the investment!

R e c i p e

Makes 10-12 waffles.

  • 2 medium sized eggs
  • 1 dl white sugar
  • 2 dl buttermilk or creme fraiche
  • 2 ½ dl whole milk
  • 350 g plain white flour
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • 125 g melted unsalted butter
  • a pinch of salt to taste

M e t h o d

  1. Start by mixing together flour, sugar, cardamom and salt in a bowl. Set aside before,  
  2. in another bowl, beat the eggs before stirring in the milk and buttermilk. Add the flour-mix and beat until all is blended.  
  3. Allow the batter to set for at least 15 minutes (you can make it the evening before if you want).
  4. Whisk in the melted butter before ladding the batter into a preheated waffle iron.
  5. Fry for the set time, until golden and crisp.
  6. Serve warm with preferred toppings.

Tip: Waffle making is great when you have left over natural or greek yoghurt, vanilla sauce, cream etc. Just replace it with the buttermilk/milk part of the recipe – and voila!
