Globecooking recipe : Norwegian Waffles


Norwegian waffles are as pretty as they are tasty. They can be eaten hot or cold, for breakfast (in our hotel you could make your own) or as a snack. Norwegians tend to snack throughout the whole day rather than having one big meal - lunch (usually a sandwich) is at 11am, then when school finishes around 2.30pm they will have another sandwich or bun, then dinner is around 4.30pm.

Making Waffles Norwegian Style

The waffles are made on a flower-shaped waffle iron and can be eaten whole, separated into individual hearts or - the most practical - separated into pairs of hinged hearts than can be filled and then closed shut before picking them up and eating them with your hands. Yum !

Norwegian Heart Waffles

Norwegian Waffles

ingredients :

500 ml plain flour 
2 tsp baking powder 
100 ml sugar
500 ml milk 
2 eggs 
50 ml melted butter 
vanilla essence (optional)

Make a smooth batter with the flour, baking powder, sugar and milk then beat in the eggs and butter (and vanilla is using). Let the batter stand for half an hour before cooking in a waffle maker.

Waffle with brunost

They can be topped/filled with sour cream and jam or, if you're feeling brave, brown cheese (which is quite sweet) and a dollop of raspberry jam. It tastes better than it sounds !


  1. Delicious waffles! Is that brown cheese gjetost? I tried it many years ago, it had a strange taste, I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not. I now want some waffles!!!!

    1. They call it Brunost but I've just checked and Gjetost is an alternative name for the varieties that contain goat's milk. The taste is strange and the texture is weirder but I brought some home again. It's strange stuff and I still haven't decided if I like it or not but it's definitely a taste of Norway!! lol

    2. I don't think I've heard of Brunost, and definitely haven't seen it here. I have bought gjetost ages ago, and can't remember where now, but feel like trying it again.

  2. Sounds great, haven't heard of brown cheese before though!
