  • When selecting the butter, make sure it is unsalted.
  • When selecting the sour cream, make sure it is full-fat.

  • For a vegan version, substitute the eggs with 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. The benefit of this substitution is that it will make the waffle vegan and lower in cholesterol. The thinking behind this substitution is that the applesauce and vegetable oil will provide the same texture and moisture as the eggs.
  • For a gluten-free version, substitute the flour with 1 cup of gluten-free all-purpose flour. The benefit of this substitution is that it will make the waffle gluten-free. The thinking behind this substitution is that the gluten-free flour will provide the same texture and structure as the regular flour.

Chocolate Chip Waffle Add 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter and mix. Follow the same steps as the original recipe.

Blueberry Compote - A sweet and tart compote made from fresh or frozen blueberries that pairs perfectly with the Norways Sour Cream Cardamom Waffle. The compote adds a fruity sweetness to the waffle that complements the cardamom flavor.

Vanilla Bean Yogurt Parfait: A light and refreshing parfait made with creamy vanilla bean yogurt, fresh berries, and crunchy granola. The perfect accompaniment to the Norways Sour Cream Cardamom Waffle, the parfait provides a cool and creamy contrast to the sweet and spicy flavors of the waffle.


Q: How much batter should I use for each waffle?

A: For each waffle, use about 1/4 cup of batter.

Q: How long should I cook the waffles for?
