How To Prepare Krumkake

Krumkake are traditional Norwegian wafer cookies. The batter is made with a combination of eggs, sugar, vanilla, flour, baking powder, cardamom, and butter. Once prepared, the batter is cooked on a special griddle that imprints the wafers with a visually attractive design.

After they’ve been baked, these wafer cookies are rolled, then often filled with whipped cream and dusted with powdered sugar. Krumkake are prepared and consumed throughout Scandinavia, and they’re especially popular during the festive Christmas season.

Chocolate might make for a great topping, along with whipped cream, as well. Perhaps you could mix fruit preserves into your whipped cream and use that for your filling.

 

STORAGE 

Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days, but I recommend eating them up as soon as possible. 

 

EQUIPMENT

Krumkake Iron

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a krumkake iron?

A Krumkake iron is a specialized tool to cook Krumkake cookies! Originally, it was a manual iron, but now they make electric ones that work really good.  

Is Krumkake Swedish or Norwegian?

Krumkaka is Norwegian, but the areas are close and often shared food and culture. 

 

RECIPE TIPS

Learn your equipment. Different Krumkake irons require other cook times.

Close your iron between each Krumkake to help it heat back up.

Those krumkakes can be pretty hot when they are just off the iron. Just know that. It is like playing a bit of hot potato or hot Krumkake I suppose.

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE KRUMKAKE

Preheat the krumkake iron. Lightly grease both the iron and a cooling rack.

Whisk together the melted butter, eggs, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth in a large. Stir the cardamom, flour, and baking powder and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.

Add about 2 teaspoons of batter to each cookie section of the krumkake iron. Close the iron and cook for about 45-50 seconds; the cookies are ready when they are very light golden brown.

Use a fork to remove the cookie from the iron and, while it is still pliable, quickly roll it around a wooden or stainless steel cone to form. Let it cool on the cone for at least 1 minute before removing and setting aside on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining cookies.

Make the filling. Beat the cream, powdered sugar, and lemon zest with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

Fill a piping bag with the whipped cream and squeeze it into the cookies. Topped with your favourite fruits.
