  • Waffle maker (or large frying pan)

Ingredients

waffle batter

  • 3 eggs
  • 700 ml milk
  • 200 g sour cream
  • 45 g unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla paste/essence
  • 1 ½ baking soda
  • 300 ml rolled oats
  • 700 ml plain flour

cold-stirred strawberries

  • 500 g strawberries
  • 100 g sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Whisk egg and sugar together in a large mixing bowl and add all the dry and wet ingredients alternately.
  2. Whisk until the batter is smooth.
  3. Cover and leave in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before you cook the waffles.
  4. While the batter rests, you can make the cold-stirred strawberries. Finely chop the strawberries and mix well together with the sugar and the lemon juice until sugar is dissolved. Taste and add more sugar and/or lemon juice if necessary. Set aside until ready to serve. It can be left in the fridge for 2-3 days.
  5. This batter is traditionally cooked in a Norwegian waffle maker, one ladleful at a time, but can be made as small pancakes in a large frying pan. Heat some butter in a large frying pan, add three small ladlefuls of batter, cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and lightly golden.
  6. They are traditionally served with a spoon of sour cream, cold-stirred strawberries and Norwegian goats cheese.
