About the Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 9 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, divided

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black cardamom

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Fold in 8 tablespoons of the butter, the vanilla, and cardamom.

  2. Add the flour and baking powder. Mix with a spatula until combined.

  3. Plug in the krumkake iron to start heating it up. Brush the inside molds with some of the remaining melted butter. I've tried cooking spray, but it makes it kind of sticky. The butter is better for seasoning the iron.

  4. When the iron is hot, add 1 heaping tablespoon of the batter to each mold in the iron and close.

  5. Bake the krumkake in the iron for about 30 seconds, until golden and a little browned.

  6. Open the iron and gently remove the krumkake from the iron. Careful, it's hot!

  7. If you choose to keep them flat, put them flat on a wire rack. If you choose to make them cone shaped, a wooden krumkake cone is included in the krumkake iron box. Just take the hot krumkake straight from the iron, wrap it around the cone, and hold it for a few seconds. Let cool on the wire rack.

  8. Some people add powdered sugar or fill them, but my family just serves them as is. They are delicious!
