Grandma's Norwegian Oatmeal Waffles

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


From Cabbagetown Cafe Cookbook by Julie Jordan. Here's what she says about this recipe.

Back in the good old days, my grandmother and grandfather ran a Norwegian waffle house in Brooklyn. There were lines around the block waiting to get in. One Christmas my grandparents wanted to go to a big party the relatives were throwing, so they sold the restaurant.

I like that story, lol.

How to Make Grandma's Norwegian Oatmeal Waffles


  1. Heat the milk until scalded, then pour it over the rolled oats in a medium-size bowl. Cool for about 30 minutes.
  2. Mix in the egg yolks, melted butter, flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff, and fold into the batter.
  4. Make the waffles following the directions for your waffle iron. Butter the waffle iron thoroughly, since these waffles are very tender and have a tendency to stick.
  5. Serve warm.
  6. The traditional accompaniments are butter and homemade jams; butter and maple syrup; and yogurt, maple syrup, and fresh fruit.
    Make the batter exactly as for waffles. Fry the pancakes in butter in a large frying pan, flipping once.
  8. Makes 4 waffles or 12 pancakes.
