Waffle Day 25th March - 'Våffeldagen'

Vaffel21

Waffle Day (25th March) began in Sweden as Våffeldagen, allegedly due to confusion between the Swedish “vårfrudagen” meaning “Our Lady’s Day” which falls on the same date. The day historically marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated by the eating of many, many waffles.

Nordic waffles are made in a special heart-shape waffle iron. The waffles are sweet and soft – and best eaten straight out of the iron, with jam and whipped cream. Or brown cheese, if you are Norwegian.

Pop by all day Tuesday 25th for waffles at the café.  Get any coffee and a waffle for a fiver - available all day.

Or make some waffles at home - here's a recipe that our Marte uses. There are as many recipes as there are families in Scandinavia - this is the one we use at ScandiKitchen.

If you don't have a waffle maker, you can buy them on Amazon and ebay.
