The Norwegians serve these tasty traditional goodies with coffee as a type of snack, or special comfort food - we, in Norway, call kosemat. They are not served as dessert after dinner...and not usually served for breakfast either.

Norwegian vaffler are delish with strawberry, blueberry or
raspberry jam (syltetoy) or jelly (sjele in Norwegian).

Serving heart shaped Norwegian Waffler
1/2 cup (100 gram) butter
4 eggs
4-5 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
2-1/2 to 3 cups flour to make a thick batter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 cups (3 deciliter) milk or buttermilk
1 cup (2 deciliter) water
1 teaspoon vanilla extrac/vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Combine dry ingredients.
Add melted butter to milk.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the liquid while stirring until you have a smooth consistency. If the batter is too thick add a small amount of cold water.

Prevent batter from sticking to the waffle iron by using a cooking spray or brush coconut oil on the iron before ladling of pouring the batter into the iron.

I remember my sister-in-law, Marit, sitting by the waffle making iron whipping up waffles as fast as she could with a bunch of us hungry Norwegians standing around her - waiting for the next waffle to be placed on the plate ready to be buttered, "jammed" and to be devoured.

And if you ever are lucky enough to have any leftover waffles, trust me, someone will sneak around the fridge and find them - and they will quickly vanish.

In Norway, we use a special, heart-shaped, electric iron (left) to make traditional Norske Vaffler.

Heart-shaped Norwegian Waffles

To serve the Norwegian waffles, use kitchen scissors to cut around each heart; spread butter and arrange them on a pretty serving plate and place a bowl of fruit or berry preserves in the center and with a bowl of whipped cream or sour cream on the side. Enjoy. Yummy! makes the most delicious brunost, you might want to check out their interesting web site, where you will find info on their products and tons of great recipes.
