NATIONAL WAFFLE WEEK
Each year, National Waffle Week kicks off a celebration packed with delicious deals and flavor. Across the country, restaurants, food trucks and more will offer specials on their waffles to loyal customers. Depending on your location, waffle lovers might even be able to get in on competitions. Check social media and listen to local broadcasts for announcements. Every year is different.
Eaten throughout the world, a waffle is a leavened batter or dough. When cooked between two patterned plates, the dough bakes in the waffle’s characteristic uniform impressed surface. Waffles also come in many forms. Depending on the type of batter or iron used, the resulting waffle varies by consistency, size, shape, and flavor.
Waffle irons and waffles originated around the 14th century. An anonymous husband penned the first known waffle recipe as a set of instructions for his wife.
