International Waffle DayMarch 25, 2016 by Stacey Farooqui
The amazing waffle in which we all loved is celebrated today. The waffle can be dated all the way to medieval times, but was not until the 13th century when its shape really took place. There are many varieties of waffles throughout the world, but one of my favorites is the Brussels waffle in which is lighter, crisper and has large pockets and rectangle sides to absorb all the sweetness of the confectionary sugar or cream.
In today’s world, a waffle can be made in many different ways. They can now be sweet and savory to tantalize our taste buds. Some examples are a bacon cheddar waffle or a pecan cookie waffle. You can also use waffles as the bread for sandwiches, croutons or even a wrap.
