Våffeldagen – A Whole Day Dedicated to Eating Waffles!

Våffeldagen is a whole day in Sweden dedicated to eating waffles….nom nom!  Saturday 25th March was the day this year.  It is another way of celebrating the start of spring after the cold dark winter here in Sweden.  The name originally comes from “Vårfrudagen” meaning our lady’s day, which is on the same day, but said in a poorly articulated way , can be mistaken for Våffeldagen.

On Våffeldagen you make waffles and serve them with fruit jams, cream, cheese, or fresh fruit.  We have a special Scandinavian heart shaped waffle iron to make ours, and here is our recipe we use:

3 dl plain flour

2 x eggs

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp sugar

3 tsp butter

1 tsp cardamom

3 dl milk

We then serve them up while still warm.  Coffee is very good with them, but due to the time of day we were eating ours, it was wine o’clock!!
