Krumkake Recipe

Krumkake
 
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs well beaten
1/2 cup butter melted
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla or lemon or almond extract
 
Add sugar to eggs and beat well.  Add melted butter to mixture; add flour and extract.
 

These have to be made on a Krumkake iron but, these are so good if you find one it is well worth the price even if you only make them once a year.  This an electric iron, I have my mother's old one that goes on the stove top but I have a glass top stove it doesn't work well. 

Put about a tablespoon of batter on the iron.  Close the lid, the batter will fan out from the pressure.


After the first few you will know just the right setting, mine is about 3 on the dial.  Keep peeking until it is this dark.

 
The second it is done lay it on a flat surface and roll it up on the cone.  Do not put new batter on your iron before rolling it or this one will be too cold and will crack as you roll it.  This is a really good two person job and since each Krumkake takes about two minutes to bake you can get some good conversation in between each one. 
 
 
Fill with whipped cream and enjoy!

These look amazing, I've never heard of krumkake before. Looks intriguing but delicious. Can't wait to try these.

If you don't mind, I'd love if you'd link these up (and any other dessert creations) on Sugar & Slice Sunday link party. Each week Sunday-Thursday.

Wow, they look amazing! I will try them soon!
But, can I use a waffle iron instead of this cute machine?
You have a great blog, by the way! :)
