I recently took the trip of a lifetime on a boat Regal Princess, cruising in Scandinavia. An 11-day cruise around the Baltic Sea should be on everyone’s bucket list.The trip was absolutely amazing journey! We departed from Copenhagen, Denmark, and sailed to Oslo, Norway.

Norway is one of my favorite stops on the trip. We arrived on a national holiday so everything was a little quieter than usual but my husband and I still had a wonderful experience. Our boat docked in the city center with some of the best views of the fjord on one side and the stunning fortress on the other. It’s an absolutely stunning way to start the day.We explored it ourselves, but we also made a short journey through the boat. We toured the city by bike and wow what a great way to see Oslo! Highlights include the Royal Palace and Sculpture Park.

After our bike ride, we went out in search of the most authentic Norwegian dinner we could find.we found it in Nelson Spatchery. It was an amazing meal that ended with a classic Norwegian dessert that blew my mind: waffles. In Norway, waffles are served as a dessert, topped with sour cream, lingonberry jam, and brown cheese. Our guide had mentioned that we needed to find some brown cheese and try it, especially the waffles. Now, what is brown cheese? Funny enough, it’s not even real cheese at all. It is made with the liquid left over after making goat cheese. It is boiled and caramelized and pressed into a loaf. Oh my God! Incredible! If you ever get a chance to try it, you have to promise me you will!

Today’s recipe is inspired by the waffles we had in Nelson. Now, you can hardly find cranberry jam and brown cheese in the US, but I wanted to recreate the amazing waffle base for you. I have to say, I did really well. With a crispy exterior and a sweet, savory interior, these waffles will make you fall in love with waffles all over again. You’ll definitely want to serve them with sour cream and your favorite jam because that’s really the best way to enjoy them. The syrup will drown out the flavor of the waffles here, and you don’t want that.

Norwegian waffles are traditionally made in a special place Heart Waffle Iron. This recipe will not turn out well in a Belgian waffle mold, so don’t try it. A regular waffle iron will do, but for best results, get yourself a heart-shaped waffle iron and enjoy these thin, crispy dessert waffles.
