Gaufres Bruxelloises – Brussels Waffles / Brüsselvafler

In Belgium  there are several kinds of waffles, including the Brussels waffles and the Liège waffles.

In North America, they are often eaten as a breakfast food; toppings vary from whipped cream, confectioners sugar, soft fruit, and chocolate spread, to syrup and butter or margarine. They may also be served with vanilla ice cream and fresh fruit (such as strawberries) as a dessert.

Apple Waffles With Ice Cream And Raspberries / Eplevafler Med Is Og Bringebær

A classic Scndinavian waffle recipe found on aperitif.no
Apple Waffles With Ice Cream And Raspberries / Eplevafler Med Is Og Bringebær

Waffle Day on 25 March is a Swedish invention, and why it is celebrated rests on a misunderstanding. The day is the same as “Vårfruedag” – the day Virgin Mary learns that she is with child. “Vårfruedag” turned over time into “Vaffeldag” (Waffle Day) in Sweden but also here in Norway, it was customary to celebrate “Vårfruedag” with cakes.

Although we feel an ownership to waffles here in Scandinavia, similar cakes are eaten most places in the world. They can be round or square, thick or thin – the heart-shaped waffles is however typical of Scandinavia. The first electric waffle iron was designed by General Electric and entered the market in 1911.

Barley Flour Waffles With Grated Apples And Maple Syrup / Byggmelsvafler Med Revne Epler Og Maple Syrup

A recipe from “Den Nye Maten” (The New Food) published by Aschehoug in 1979

My first waffle recipe to day was rather decadent, so if you like your waffles healthier and more wholesome this is the recipe for you. “The New Food” was one of the first cook books in Norwegian that managed to make healthy food look tempting, even delicious. Other cook books on the theme had been published earlier of course, we’re not all born behind the barn you know 😉 . On the other hand, these books had a certain old schoolbook feel to them and the pictures in them made the food look dull and unappetizing.
