This Saturday, those of us with a sweet tooth will be rejoicing as it’s International Waffle Day! They make the most delicious treat that’s perfect for any time of day -including breakfast, lunch or dessert! To mark the occasion, we did a bit of research to find out exactly where the day originated from and also some of our favourite toppings….
What is Waffle Day?
Well, in actual fact there are two Waffle days - one that falls on March 25th and one that’s celebrated in August over in America.
The tradition originates from Sweden, and is celebrated across the country. It’s now catching on around Europe and, in celebration, people rejoin in eating waffles all day!
Over in America, the day is celebrated on August 24th honouring the anniversary of the first US Waffle Iron that was created by Cornelius Swarthout from New York.
We’ve pulled together a couple of Waffle facts that we thought you’d love to know...
No waffle is complete without a delicious topping, whether it’s sweet or savoury. Here, we share with you our top three toppings...
Ice cream - We know this is such an easy topping but add a bit of whipped cream and throw some fruit into the mix and you’ll create the most amazing taste!
Scrambled eggs - Perfect for a breakfast or brunch delight, simply add scrambled eggs for a simple and easy to make morning delight. You could even spice it up with a bit of bacon.
Nutella - There’s nothing more perfect than melted Nutella on warm pancakes...delicious
