A waffle is a dish made from leavened batter or dough that is cooked between two plates that are patterned to give a characteristic size, shape, and surface impression. 1869 – Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York, a Dutch-American, receives a patent for the first waffle iron in the U.S., on August 24th.There are many variations based on the type of waffle iron and recipe used. Waffle-making made its way to America with Dutch colonists in the 1620s. It was one hundred years later, in Robert Smith’s Court Cookery, that the English language saw the appearance of the word “waffle” for the first time.

Waffles were enjoyed sweet, with butter, syrup, or fruit, or savoury, with kidney stew. Pancakes and waffles are bread, the type known as ‘quick bread’ – bread leavened with baking soda or baking powder. Waffles are almost identical to pancakes, only having a little fatter in the batter, and cooked on a grid-shaped pan (waffle maker). A soft, bread-like cake with a surface of uniform indentations similar to a honeycomb.

In many places, waffles are served and eaten with a knife and fork. Pierce the corner of the waffle with your fork, and use the knife to cut off a small, bite-sized piece. Use the fork to pick up the piece and bring it to your mouth. Wait until you chew and swallow before cutting another small piece. Serve them hot, warm, or chilled, depending on your toppings. Cooked waffles can be frozen and heated up in the toaster. Unused batter mixture can be kept in a container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, though we always recommend making them fresh and enjoying them without much wait and delay!
