International Waffle Day is March 25

International Waffle Day is celebrated every March 25th and is a day to celebrate all things WAFFLES!

Waffles have been around for centuries, dating back to ancient Greece where they were cooked over hot coal fires. They have evolved over time and are now enjoyed all over the world in various forms.

The origin of International Waffle Day can be traced back to Sweden, where it is known as Våffeldagen.

It was initially celebrated on March 25th because that date falls during the Christian holiday of Annunciation, which marks when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary with news of her pregnancy. In Sweden, waffles were traditionally eaten on this day as a way to celebrate the beginning of spring.

Today, waffles come in many different variations and toppings, and I’m going to show YOU how to make waffles from scratch!

Servings

Makes about 6 (4-inch square) waffles

Time To Prepare

15 minutes ‘til they’re ready to eat

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons butter, ½ stick, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s directions. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla extract in a smaller bowl.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to create a super waffle batter that’s ready for any of your stir-ins or is just terrific on its own.

Pour the batter into the waffle iron and cook until crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Top with fruit, maple syrup, honey, or any of your favorite things.

Thing to Note: You can make this batter today, place it in an airtight container and whip up the waffles up to 3 days later.

#RecipeRemix: Leftover waffles? No problem! Cut leftovers into chunks and toast them in the oven with a bit of cinnamon and sugar. Now you have waffle croutons for your ice cream dessert.
