It’s true. I have an old-fashioned hand held Krumkake iron. It was purchased in a small town in North Dakota. this recipe is from the old Betty Crocker Cookbook I posted a few days ago.
Here’s the recipe:
1 c sugar
1/2 c butter or margarine, melted
5 Tbsp whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c Gold Medal Flour
2 tsp cornstarch
Heat ungreased krumkake iron over small electric or gas 6-inch surface unit on medium-high heat. Beat all ingredients until smooth.
Test iron with few drops of water; if they “skitter” around, iron is correct temperature. Drop 1/2 tablespoon batter on iron; close gently. Bake about 15 seconds on each side or until light golden brown. Keep iron over heat at all times. Remove with knife; immediately roll around wooden roller. (An old fashioned clothespin works well.)
