Global Recipe: Amanda's Grandma's Krumkake

Amanda’s Grandma’s Krumkake



Krumkake is a Norwegian waffle cookie that is a traditional dessert.  They can be filled with lots of different things, but the below recipe has them filled with whip cream and cloudberry. Feel free to give it your own unique spin!





1 C Sugar

1/2 C Butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3 eggs, beat until fluffy

1/2 C Heavy Whipping Cream

2 C Flour

1/2 teaspoon of either nutmeg or cardamon, ground



Heat krumkake iron on stove over medium heat. You can also use an electric krumkake or pizzelle iron.


Cream together the butter and sugar in a bowl. In separate bowl beat eggs till fluffy. Then add to sugar and butter mix with spoon. Pour in the cream, flour, vanilla, and nutmeg/cardamom; mix well.


Place a teaspoon of the batter on the preheated iron, and press together. Cook until browned, about 30 seconds per side, depending on the heat. Remove from the iron and quickly roll up around a stick or around a cone before they harden.


You can fill them with whatever you like but I like whipped cream and cloudberries. Here’s that recipe:



2 C whipped heavy cream (whip until it forms peaks)
2 Tablespoons cloudberries (you can also use fresh raspberries or raspberry jam)


Whip the heavy cream until it forms peaks and then fold in your cloudberries. Once mixed simply pipe using a pastry bag the mixture into each cooled Krumkake.
