Norwegian christens their new planes with an unexpected twist: Norwegian waffles.

At Boeing airfield in Seattle, Wash., Norway’s favorite low-cost airline celebrates the newest planes in their fleet with Norwegian waffles. They have graciously shared their recipe with us. What will you celebrate with waffles this year?

Norwegian Waffles:

1 tsp vanilla powdered sugar (can be omitted, but they taste better with it)

2 eggs

3 tsp granulated sugar

2 cups buttermilk (or substitute regular milk)

3 oz margarine

1 tsp baking soda if buttermilk is used (substitute 1 tsp baking powder if regular milk is used)

Unbleached Flour until batter is thick enough

Melt margerine in a cup (do not boil), and let cool. In a medium bowl, add eggs, sugar and vanilla sugar. With an electric mixer, combine the ingredients for 5 minutes. Add the cooled margarine, buttermilk (or milk), baking soda (or baking powder if using regular milk). Add enough flour to create a thick batter. Preheat heart-shaped waffle iron on setting 4. Add a scoop of batter to the waffle iron and bake until golden brown. Serve with jam and sour cream. Enjoy!
