I received 150 Best Waffle Maker Recipes in exchange for this post. All opinions and my love for waffles remain my own.
Waffles are kind of a big deal at our house.
When I was a little girl, I remember watching my dad make waffles for us on Sunday morning. Then, I continued the tradition. The waffle maker was archaic but we continued. Then on a family vacation, we happened to stay at a hotel that had a breakfast where you made your own waffles. We loved the waffle maker and set out to find one for our home.
Now Waffles aren’t just for breakfast at our house.
Fun Waffle Fact: The Waffle House seels 145 waffles per minute–877 million waffles and counting since they opened. Almost 10-percent of North Americans eat waffles at least once a week.
Did you know that Waffles have been around since the Ninth and Tenth century? Greece is where they were born, made from grain flour and water, waffles then were known as “Communion Wafers” and were pressed with an image of Jesus or a scene from the bible.
It took people until the 11th century to give waffles flavor. They added honey, butter, and orange blossom water.
Fast forward to the 14th century when the French medieval guidebook, Le Ménagier de Paris (The Paris Household Book) was published. Inside the pages was a waffle recipe with three variations.
The waffle irons were invented sometime during the 15th century. Waffles have caught on and each country had their own waffle recipe and how they ate them. The Dutch found maple syrup and waffles were a good pairing.
In New York and New Jersey they held waffle parties, also referred to as “wafel frolics”.
Our love affair of waffles hit a stall. We needed something more creative to do with our waffles. The kids were stuck on Waffles and Ice Cream with a side of history, but we needed something more.
