Krumkake

The Haraldsen family shared in a Norwegian tradition this week. We made Krumkake. And I was fortunate enough to have inherited this beautiful iron, forged in Norway. My Grampa, Erling Haraldsen, passed this along to me. It had originally been his mother’s.

And the recipe was written in her hand-writing. Once you bake the krumkake over the heat, it is rolled into a conical shape on the wooden piece below. They are smaller and flakier than waffle cones, but can be enjoyed in the same way. Yummy…

Grampa instead used an electric iron so we could get through the batter mix faster… here you will see his process.


Thank you, Grampa for sharing this tradition with me. I will treasure this gem for a long time.
