Hands up who likes pancake?! The likelihood is you’ll also like waffles too – right? Yes, since we had a Pancakes Day in February then why not a Waffle Day too? Well, on 25 March is the International Waffle Day!
First celebrated in Sweden, a day which the people of Sweden celebrate Vårfrudagen (“Our Lady’s Day”), a religious holiday nine months before Christmas. With no direct relation to the religious holiday, it co-incidentally sound like waffle as well, and soon it became an international hit.
Why I love waffles?
I love its soft texture on the inside and the little grid on how it made. I either go for nothing at all – a standalone style with nothing as topping or a total full frontal with everything on top. Plus it is so easy to make. If you know how to make pancakes then this will be a breeze for you.
7 Ways to Celebrate International Waffle Day
1. Be the host of an international waffle brunch
Invite friends over for a festive waffle brunch dish. Ask them to bring a topping that is unique to a specific country, and enjoy the different taste around the world.
2. Invent your own recipe competition
Like Plan 1 – ask your friends to invent a recipe that has a specific country famous taste. For example: A French cheesy waffle or a spicy waffle perhaps? And ask your friends to score each other recipes marks out of 10 – written on the card and reveal at the end.
3. Blind fold tasting challange
Now, following from Plan 2. Blindfold your friends and ask them to taste and guess which waffle recipes belong to which Chef.
4. Hold a Waffle Eating Contest
If you have any leftovers then why not have a waffle eating contest! See who has the biggest stomach amongst your friends!
5. Waffle on the Spatula Race
For any more leftovers – then a Waffle on the Spatula race would be perfect. Yes, just like egg on the spoon race – but this will be far more tricker! 😉
6. Best Waffle Shaper Game
I know this is just not me. Who like to cut their waffle into certain shape and size before it goes onto the folk and into their mouth. Me! So this contest if for those who’d like to be a little more artistic. Shape that Waffle into something creative. The more creative you get then the more likelihood you’ll win the contest!
7. Hold a Community Waffle Day
This is a great way to give back to the community. Have a look around at your local charities, ask them if you can organise a special waffle breakfast for those who are in need. This is such a great way to provide a quick and delicious meal to people who may not have a warm decent meal in ages.
