Norwegian Krumkake Recipe
Today I’m sharing a recipe that is near and dear to my heart: Norwegian krumkake.
My family has been making krumkake for generations. It’s a cookie we only make around Christmas.
What Is Krumkake?
Krumkake is a delicate, lightly sweetened Norwegian cookie made on a krumkake iron. The iron has a pretty design which imprints onto the cookie.
The cookies are similar in taste and texture to homemade waffle cones.
You will need a krumkake iron to make these. Buy a quality one and it will last you forever. Here’s what I recommend: Nordic Ware Norwegian Krumkake Iron
- Prepare the batter (recipe below)
- Preheat krumkake iron on the stovetop (medium-high heat)
- Place a full tablespoon of batter on the grill
- Close lid and cook for about a minute total: I cooked it for 35 seconds on one side, then flipped and cooked for 25 seconds on the other side. Please note: Cooking times may vary. This will take a bit of experimentation. You want the krumkake to be golden brown on both sides.
- Remove flat cookie from iron and use the wooden krumkake roller to make a cone shaped cookie
- After a few seconds, remove the cookie from the roller and allow to cool completely
