My Favourite Waffles

One of first things I crave when I am back in my native Oslo is waffles. Like most Norwegians I have tested out different recipes and made my own lunch version, which tastes delicious served with honey, especially after a long walk in Marka.

Here is the recipe:

  • 1. 5 dl plain flour
  • 1.5 dl oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2.5 dl soya or ordinary milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 dl melted butter or margarine


Mix well and leave in the fridge to swell/prove for at least an hour, before using the waffle maker. Serve with real Norwegian honey, now available to buy online from Scandikitchen in London, see Enjoy!

  1. Oh dear … minner til Karen Berthine! My mormor used to make the most wonderful vaffler on her battered old gjern … it was a wedding gift to her sometime in the late 1920s. Perhaps it was the age of the gjern that made her vaffler taste so good. I don’t recall her puting oats in them. I am going to try your recipe! Thank you.

    • I believe using oats is a fairly new but wonderful idea! It was a friend of mine that suggested it and I have never gone back!But I do love all kinds of vaffler! Thank you for sharing your story!
