PRINT RECIPE

Learn how to make a traditional Krumkake dessert using Nordic Ware’s Norwegian Krumkake Iron. This Cardamom Krumkake recipe is an amazing classic holiday recipe to make with the entire family!

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/ 2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/ 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom or anise flavoring
  • 1 cup of milk

Directions

To Prepare Iron for Use:  Place iron directly over medium heat on top of stove.  Alternately heat both sides of the iron until water sprinkled inside sizzles.  Grease inside of plates when making the first few cookies.

Beat eggs well; add sugar, butter and cardamom or anise. Continue beating. Add flour and milk, beat until smooth.

*Whole cardamom seed that has been shelled and freshly crushed with a rolling pin makes for a more flavorful krumkake.

To Bake:  Spoon about 1 tsp. of batter in center of baking surface.  Close iron and gently squeeze handles together. (Batter flowing out indicates too much batter being used and this surplus should be scraped off immediately before it burns.)  Bake 5-10 seconds before turning iron over to continue baking on other side.  Bake until cookie is a light golden brown; open iron to check for doneness.  Remove quickly with a spatula and roll immediately on cone to shape.  Remove cone and cool seam side down on wire rack. When completely cool store in shallow airtight container, stacking carefully 1-2 deep. Makes about 50.

    I was gifted a vintage NordicWare Krumkake iron and just made this recipe tonight for the first time. I was quite intimidated at first but quickly realized how fun it was. It made too many for my tiny family of two. I think we got about 36-45+ so next time we will half the recipe. We had to use powdered cardamom so we did a heaping tsp and that was a very good call. My daughter really loves these and has already asked to make them again.

    Excellent recipe and a perfect Nordicware Krumkake iron! My mother had her Nordicware Krumkake iron for years, but I had to buy a new one since one of my sisters inherited moms old iron!

    A Norwegian friend and I got together to put together a Norwegian meal. This is the first time making krumkake. It was easy, a lot of fun and the results were delicious!
