17 Mai,  Waffle Wednesday,  Waffles

Vaffelkake – Waffle Cake

To continue the gear up towards syttende Mai, I wanted to make this Waffle Wednesday festive with this delicious Waffle Cake! 

For me personally there is nothing that goes more hand in hand with syttende Mai than waffles when we’re talking food. (Well, that and copious amounts of ice cream!)

Please keep in mind this recipe uses the Scandinavian heart style waffle iron, not the American/Belgian type iron. Link to a recommended iron in the notes of the recipe.

Yield: 10 servings

A delicious waffle cake is the perfect addition to your dessert table! Especially if you are celebrating syttende Mai!

Just as a heads up, this waffle recipe requires the Scandinavian style heart waffle iron, not the thicker Belgian/American waffle irons.

Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 100 grams / 3.5 oz butter.
  • 4 eggs.
  • 5 tablespoons sugar.
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom.
  • 4 dl / 13.5 oz all purpose flour.
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder.
  • 5 dl / 2 cups milk.


  • 3 dl / 10 oz heavy (whipping) cream.
  • 1 dl / ½ cup raspberry jam.
  • Fresh berries for decoration.
  • Chocolate to grate on top (Optional)


  1. Melt the butter and mix all the ingredients together to a smooth batter. It's best if you let the batter rest for a bit, preferably 30 minutes.
  2. Cook the waffles in the waffle iron to a golden color. Set aside to cool.
  3. Use mixer to whip the cream until stiff (If you like it sweet, add a tablespoon or two of sugar).
  4. Place a waffle plate on a serving plate and add jam and cream, working upwards in a layer. Decorate with cream and whole berries at the top. It's great if you add a bit of grated chocolate as well.
