The Krumkake is a delicious holiday treat that is versatile, tasty, and a great way to celebrate Norwegian heritage. Great for Christmas, Thanksgiving, or just a fun treat for your family.



  • ¾ cup of sifted all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed cardamom
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 Tablespoons melted butter, but not hot 


  1. Add flour, sugar, cornstarch, and cardamom to large bowl. Mix well.
  2. In smaller bowl, beat eggs and then add cream, vanilla, and butter. Mix well
  3. Add liquid mixture into dry mixture and combined until a smooth peanut butter like consistency
  4. Preheat krumkake grill
  5. Each Krumkake will require about 1 ½ tablespoons of batter. Add one to your Krumkake maker and cook until golden brown. For my tool, this is about 1:30 seconds.
  6. Remove with fork and use Krumkake tool to form into cone before it cools down
  7. Allow grill to heat back up, repeat until batter is gone
  8. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Fill with whipped cream and fruit. Eat! 


  • Learn your equipment. Different Krumkake irons require other cook times.
  • Close your iron between each Krumkake to help it heat back up.
  • Those krumkakes can be pretty hot when they are just off the iron. Just know that. It is like playing a bit of hot potato… or hot Krumkake I suppose
  • While I filled with whipped cream and topped with fruit, explore your toppings!
  • These do get crumbly when eating. Enjoy the crumble.
  • These surely won’t last long, but you can keep in a tight plastic container for several days.
