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.



  • 3/4 cup of sifted all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed cardamom
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp melted butter, but not hot 


  1. Add flour, sugar, corn starch, 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! 


  • Each Krumkake grill is going to be slightly different and can dramatically impact the cooking times. While for my tool it is 1:30 seconds, yours may be just 10 seconds needed on each side. Learn your Krumkake tools
  • While traditionally this is served as a cone, you can also allow them to be just flat.
  • You don’t need whipped cream, powdered sugar, or fruit, but these do make them a tad bit more special.  
  • The calorie count does NOT account for toppings.
  • If you are using cardamom, as the recipe calls for, and you are working with full pods, break each open individually and crush the seeds with a roller.
