This recipe is not for the calorie conscience people. My Bestemor used to make these in a waffle maker that she would open with a pickle fork. We wouldn't DARE eat them with syrup (as they're sweet enough) however, we would eat them with home made strawberry jam. The aroma of cardamom is amazing. If I want to get my children out of bed - I simply make a batch of Bestemor's waffles.
