    Crème fraîche is a good substitute for Rømme, which is Norway's delicious version of sour cream. Don't use American-style sour cream.

    Ooo sounds delicious. Fluffly waffles are the best waffles, although difficult achieve in my experience, maybe they won't be now. Thanks for sharing!

    No problem! Just to mention, another way to get really fluffy waffles is to separate the yolks from the egg-whites. Then whisk the egg-whites into stiff peaks form, and fold it gently in. And be sure to not over-stir the batter. (I don't do this to often though as it takes more work ;)
