Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients well.
  2. Spoon approximately 1 T.
  3. onto ungreased, medium heat, preheated Krumkake Iron (Find at specialty stores for about$65. 00) Cook about 1minute, flip cook another 30 seconds until lightly golden brown.
  4. While warm roll into a cone shape.
  5. (If you don't have the rolling tool, try a clean clothes pin.) These are very delicate and tasty cookies, they are very pretty with a design from the iron.
  6. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar or fill with whipped cream (Ready Whip makes this easy) Enjoy!

A very good recipe for Krumkake. I used almond extract as my preference. My daughter and I made them today for Mother's day. Got lazy and made the flat version. So crispy and not too sweet. I might add just a pinch of salt next time to brighten the flavor.

Excellent Recipe! My family & I enjoyed it immensely. Instead of Cardamom seed; I used a teaspoon of ground Cinnamon. Next time I will try the recipe with a 1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon. Recipe makes nice crunchy Krumkaka. It took a nice consistent time of 1 Min 15 secs in my Villa ware Krumkake Iron. Thank you soo much!!

This is the same recipe my family has used for many, many years. We add 1 tsp of nutmeg to the batter. Awesome.
