As we didn't get to go home for the Norwegian national day on the 17th of May, we celebrated it in our garden making waffles and watching the parade on youtube (Here and here and here and here are some examples for those of you have no idea of what I'm on about). Not quite the same as the real thing, but still a taste of home!

For those of you who have a Norwegian style waffle press (not a french waffle press!)at home here is the recipe we tend to use:

2 eggs
2 dl sugar

5 dl white flour
1 ts vanilla sugar
1 ts cardamon powder
2 ts baking soda
5 dl milk
150g melted butter
a small pinch of salt
2 tbs of water

1. Start off by whipping together eggs and sugar so it's light and fluffy.
2. Mix the dry and wet in separate bowls before adding them gradually into the egg mix. Continue until all is combined.
3. Let the batter rest for 15 min. It should be like thick pancake batter.
