International Waffle Day falls in the middle of this week, Wednesday the 25th, which is a lovely tradition that began in Sweden as a result of confusion with the words Vårfrudagen (Our Lady’s Day) and Våffledagen (Waffle Day). This day traditionally marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated by eating waffles. It also follows the same day as the Feast of Annunciation; a holiday that celebrates Jesus' conception, this takes place nine months before Christmas.
The best way to celebrate Waffle Day is enjoying a nice plate of them, with these delicious and inspiring toppings. The scrumptious waffles can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner, snack or dessert.
Go savoury for lunch or dinner with waffles topped with fried chicken or ham and cheese with any sauce of your choice.
Enjoy a waffle coated in chocolate, almonds with fresh cherries and blueberries.
Try the classic waffles with butter and maple syrup with a strip of bacon for a twist.
These strawberry waffles smothered in chocolate sauce then topped with fresh strawberries, are an easy breakfast option!
We'd love to hear what you'll be topping the waffles with! Let us know in the comments...
