Waffles… Those tasty little heart shaped treats. A huge favourite with most Norwegians, us lot included. Especially when enjoyed on the beach in your swimsuits, with sandy hands and sticky jam. Oh, year-round-warm-sunny-weather of Dubai, how we heart you.
While the cousins visited we tried out a new recipe, borrowed from the Moods of Norway creators. Rumour has it they serve waffles and champagne to customers in their store in Los Angeles on Saturdays… No wonder their bright and colourful designs are selling like hot cakes. Hah. Sorry, couldn’t resist.
We found the recipe here (Trine’s Matblogg):
- 50 g butter
- 400 g flour
- 150 g sugar (can be reduced to 100g or less)
- 1,5 ts baking powder
- 1,5 ts vanilla extract
- 1 ts cinnamon
- 6 dl milk
- 2 eggs
Melt the butter and set it aside to cool slightly.
Mix all the dry ingredients. Add the milk, and mix well. Add the eggs, and continue mixing. Stir in the melted butter.
Set aside for half an hour, then cook waffles in a hot waffle iron, till they turn a nice golden colour.
Leave them to cool a little. Serve with fresh berries and sour cream, or jam and brown cheese, with a handful of sand and salty water from the beach, as we did.
