Start Christmas day with this Scandinavian breakfast – it’s so simple and it will wow your guests.


Preparation method

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, cardamom and sugar. Add the eggs, cream, milk and butter and mix with a hand-mixer until it becomes a smooth, thick batter.

  2. Let the batter rest for a minimum of 30 minutes, or overnight in the fridge.

  3. Preheat the waffle iron on a medium heat.

  4. Put a medium ladleful of the batter mixture in the waffle iron, making sure not to overfill. Cook each waffle until golden-brown and cool on a rack so that they don’t steam up and get soggy.
