What is more Norwegian than waffles? Hm..maybe our brown cheese, which by the way would go perfect with waffles.
The Norwegian waffles are not like the Belgian ones which are thick and usually square. No, we like to make them thinner and heart shaped. Eat them topped with a teaspoon of sour cream and another teaspoon of home made blueberry jam and you have yourself quite a treat.
Norwegians call Wednesday “Little Saturday” so I find no problem with serving this treat mid-week.
WHAT YOU NEED
for 10-12 waffles
* 150g butter
* 400g all purpose flour
* 120g sugar
* 1,5 tsp baking-powder
* 1,5 tsp vanilla sugar
* 1 tsp cinnamon
* 6 dl milk
* 2 eggs
WHAT YOU DO
Melt the butter and let it cool of a bit.
Have all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, add the milk and mix together with a hand-mixer till you get a smooth consistency.
Then add the eggs, mix again and at last the butter comes in the bowl and everything is mixed together once more.
Let the batter rest for about half an hour before pouring it, one spoonful at a time, onto a warm waffle iron.
Once golden, have the waffles on a cooking grate to keep them crispy.
Enjoy with butter and sugar, sour cream and jam or of course with the Norwegian brown cheese.
