Recipe by the80srule

From "Cooking the Norwegian Way", the only changes I made was to use plain yogurt instead of sour cream, I left butter the way it was though I use Earth Balance. You can also try subbing half the flour for whole-wheat flour or just use whole-wheat pastry flour to get flakier waffles. Norwegian waffle irons also make heart-shaped waffles! My Powerpuff Girls waffle iron makes cool swirly-shape ones.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Whisk in the flour, cardamom, and sour cream until smooth and creamy.
  3. Melt the butter and stir it into the mixture, then set aside for 10 minutes.
  4. Grease your waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions with butter/Earth Balance, oil, or cooking spray. Pour on batter in 1/2-cup increments and cook according to your judgment or manufacturer directions. Serve with powdered sugar and lingonberry jam.
