EQUIPMENT TO MAKE NORWEGIAN HEART WAFFLES

If you don’t already have a heart waffle maker, you’ll likely want to go buy a heart waffle maker then come back.

The other pieces of equipment you’ll need are:

  • 2 medium mixing bowls
  • a pastry brush to brush the butter on the waffle iron

Technically, it’s a mushroom brush, but it works a treat in the kitchen for baking and brushing butter on the waffle iron. Each brush is hand-made by visually-impaired craftsmen in Iris Hantverk’s Swedish brush bindery.

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE HEART SHAPED WAFFLES

You need the following common ingredients to make these Norwegian waffles:

  • egg
  • whole milk
  • Greek yogurt
  • vanilla extract
  • all purpose flour
  • granulated sugar
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • sea salt
  • butter

INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE THIS NORWEGIAN WAFFLE RECIPE

The basic instructions are easy and straightforward. You’ll just need two bowls.

Whisk the dry ingredients together. Whisk the wet ingredients together. Combine the bowls, being careful not to over mix. Then allow the batter to rest.

TIPS TO MAKE THE BEST NORWEGIAN WAFFLES

The trickiest part of this recipe is to make sure that you preheat your heart waffle maker enough so it is fully hot when you scoop on the waffle batter.

Once it’s hot (some waffle makers that I’ve used take up to 10 minutes!), make sure you generously brush butter all over the top and bottom plates.

The butter is crucial. It will help the heart waffle not stick to the iron, help your waffles achieve a nice brown color, and leave you with a buttery mouthfeel.

WHAT ARE GOOD TOPPINGS FOR NORWEGIAN WAFFLES?

Norwegian heart waffles can be served with various toppings. Most commonly you might see:

  • a touch of butter and jam
  • a dollop of sour cream and jam\
  • a slice of brown cheese

The topping on this heart shaped waffle isn’t traditional, but it is delicious! To serve heart waffles like the ones in the photo, use:

  • thick plain Greek yogurt
  • blood orange slices
  • chopped pistachios
  • drizzle of honey

I really hope you love these Scandinavian sweetheart waffles! It’s a special treat for our family, and I wish the same for you.

Perfect Norwegian waffles made with an easy recipe. These heart shaped waffles are deliciously eggy, with a hint sweetness and vanilla flavor. Softer than traditional waffles, so don’t expect crispy waffles.

INGREDIENTS

1 large egg
3/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch sea salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter – melted
unsalted butter – additional (about 1 tablespoon), for the waffle iron

FOR THE TOPPINGS

  • Greek yogurt
  • blood orange slices
  • honey
  • chopped pistachios

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Beat in the milk, yogurt and vanilla. Set aside.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
    Make a well in the dry ingredients, and slowly pour in the wet ingredients while whisking it so it just comes together. Pour in the melted butter. Whisk everything together until it is smooth, being careful not to over mix.
  3. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, heat up your waffle iron. When you are ready, make sure your waffle iron is fully hot. Lightly brush the bottom and top with melted butter. Gently scoop on the waffle batter, so it just covers the surface of the waffle iron. For my waffle iron, it about 1/4 cup of batter per waffle.
  5. Close the lid and hold it down for about 30 seconds (I find this helps the waffle batter spread evenly). Cook each waffle for several minutes. Repeat until all the batter is used.
  6. Serve immediately. The waffles will go soggy if you wait to eat them. Still delicious, but not as amazing.

FOR THE TOPPINGS

  1. If you would like to prepare it with the toppings as pictured, cut and slice the oranges while the waffle batter is resting. You will need about 1/3 orange for each waffle.
  2. Top each waffle with a generous spoonful of Greek yogurt. Top with the orange slices. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Drizzle honey over it all. Enjoy!
