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

  • 1
    Heat the milk until scalded, then pour it over the rolled oats in a medium-size bowl. Cool for about 30 minutes.

  • 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.

    The traditional accompaniments are butter and homemade jams; butter and maple syrup; and yogurt, maple syrup, and fresh fruit.
