Happy Waffle Day!

March 25th is Sweden's National Waffle Day (Våffeldagen)!  So fire up your waffle irons and indulge in a sweet or savory waffle today!  It represents the start of Spring for Sweden, though there is still a lot of snow on the ground...

Here is a link to a Swedish waffle recipe, of course, serve with ligonberries:

When made on a Scandinavian heart-shaped waffle iron, cardamom "vafler" are truly an expression of love.
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 10 Cardamom Waffles


2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp. freshly ground cardamom
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup melted butte

Whisk together eggs, milk, and cardamom. Stir in sugar, flour, and baking powder until batter is well-combined. Stir in melted butter. If possible, allow batter to cool in refrigerator for 1/2 hour.

Lightly grease heart-shaped waffle iron. Drop batter in heaping tablespoons on iron, spreading with a knife into every crevice. Close iron and bake.

Serve with lingonberry jam. Waffles can be frozen and reheated.
