One of the best things you can have in my opinion after a day out in nature is fresh homemade waffles. I remember from my childhood in Norway that my mother had waffles ready for me and my sister when we got home from skiing with our father or friends. My mother made the best waffles. In her honor, I have posted her waffle recipe below. Use it with respect and love and call it MorHanne’s, “Mom Hanne”, waffles.
Imagine you have been out all day, skiing, hiking or gardening and you come home to the smell of fresh-baked waffles. The best. You sit down with your family or friends, and get ready to enjoy the waffles together. You’ve got a cup of hot chocolate, tea or coffee, and then the waffles are brought to the table. A whole stack of them arrive and are still warm from the griddle. Yum. Eat this Norwegian treat with 38% sour cream, whipped cream or jam (raspberry or strawberry are the most popular in Norway). Another tasty alternative is to smother them with some butter and then sprinkle some sugar on top! The superior version is served with vanilla ice cream…Velbekomme!
Ingredients: 4 eggs, 6 tbs. sugar, 150 grams butter, 4 dl milk, 300 grams flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. cardamom or vanilla powder
1) Beat eggs and sugar and set aside
2) Melt the butter then add in flour, baking powder, cardamom/vanilla
3) Combine egg/sugar mix with butter and flour mix. When all mixed together, then slowly whip in the 4 dl of milk. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before making the waffles. When ready, pour mixture into waffle iron and cook for 2-3 minutes or until done.
