North Dakota Nice

Nice news of the day – December 5, 2019

Looking for an easy krumkake recipe?  Check out today’s news (you’ll also need a krumkake iron).

And looking for some nice news?  Look no further than today’s news – about a girl named Kali, a team of Blue Santas, and North Dakota Jews.  Read on.


Kali Coffey was an awesome 3-year-old girl who continues to share sunshine with her family’s annual toy drive. (KX Net)

I’ve never heard of a Blue Santa before, and what a great idea. (McKenzie County Farmer)

I’m Jewish, so this is a topic that is obviously near-and-dear to my heart: Rebecca and Kenneth Bender wrote a book on homesteading Jews in North Dakota.  And here’s an interesting fact: North Dakota initially had the fourth largest number of Jewish farmers by state in the country. (Fargo Forum)


Krumkake (pronounced KROOM-ka-ka)

This recipe will make roughly 60 krumkake, and will take approximately 3 hours.  Get a good stool, or be prepared to stand.

  • 1 pint whipping cream, whipped
  • 1C sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1t vanilla
  • 2-3C flour

Slowly combine ingredients using an electric mixer in the order above, adding just enough flour to make it feel like pancake batter.  Bake krumkakes 1 tablespoonful at a time in the krumkake iron, rolling immediately into a cone shape as they come out.  You can eat them just as they are, but they can also be piped with sweetened whipping cream.  My personal favorite is to add cocoa powder to the whipping cream to make chocolate krumkake.
