Waffles in Sweden

Spread the love

Many people associate waffles with Belgium, but they do have a long culinary history in Sweden. Swedish waffles differ from their Belgian counterparts in that they are not as fluffy, and they are made in the shape of hearts in a special waffle iron. They are commonly enjoyed with cloudberry jam, whipped cream, and always coffee (they don’t do anything in Sweden without a good cup of coffee). The Swedish have declared March 25th to be Waffle Day (Vaffeldagen in the local language). Although they have a day dedicated to them, they are enjoyed any time of the year, especially in the days leading up to Christmas.
