For best results, use a traditional Norwegian waffle iron.


For the waffles

6 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup melted butter


  1. In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until creamy.
  2. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt until just combined.
  3. Add in sour cream and melted butter and mix until the batter is smooth. Let it rest for 20 minutes before making the waffles.
  4. Heat a heart-shaped waffle iron and spray it with nonstick cooking spray or brush with melted butter.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto the waffle iron, close, and cook until light brown. Serve with butter and brown cheese, or whipped cream topped with jam.
