Calendar: International Waffle Day

Wednesday, 25 March 2009

As if we ever needed an excuse, Wednesday 25 March is Waffle Day in Sweden.

Våffeldagen is celebrated on the first day of spring when Swedish women come up for air from the long cold winter, and begin baking delicious goodies, like the mouth-drooling waffle.

Like I said, who ever needs an excuse?

My kids only ever got into waffles when we moved to Beijing, of all places. Maybe it was the saturation of American food one can find in Jenny Lou's.

They love maple syrup, of course, but I love to whiz up fresh berries with a splash of vanilla extract and a dash of icing sugar.

What are your favourite toppings?
