International Waffle Day!

Oooh, a whole day devoted to waffles! That’s right, today is International Waffle Day! Lekker!  

I did some research, and waffles apparently originated from the Dutch word ‘wafel’.

The waffle, dates back to the Middle Ages, when a batter was cooked between two metal plates.

These days, there are various sizes and designs of electric waffle irons.

The most popular and well-known waffle, is a Belgian waffle.

When it comes to toppings, whether you like yours sweet, or prefer it savoury, there are endless ways to top your waffle – bacon; syrup; fruit; chocolate sauce; ice cream; peanut butter; or even cheese.

I love to eat waffles, as well as make them, and today I’ll be enjoying these delicious banana waffles.

What is your favourite waffle, and what toppings do you prefer? Leave a reply below.
