Vafler – Waffles

Here is the base recipe for waffles! You can either have this as a delicious treat with just a bit of jam, whipped cream, or brun ost (Brown cheese.) or you can have a look around at my other waffle recipes and see if you would like to take it one step further!

For Norwegian waffles, or Scandinavian waffles in general, you will need a heart waffle maker though. The biggest difference here isn’t that they’re heart shaped, but they are also a lot thinner than the usual American/Belgian waffles. A waffle maker like this would be perfect, and let’s you cook two at the time!

Yield: 10 waffles

  • 3 eggs.
  • 100 grams / 3.5 oz melted butter.


  1. Add all the dry ingredients to the bowl and stir in a little milk at a time. Stir well as you add the milk to get a smooth batter with no flour lumps.
