The 25th of March is in Sweden know as Waffle Day. Although we’ve already passed it this year, we figured there’s no harm in a little belated celebration. And really – couldn’t any or every day be a Waffle Day?

To make Swedish waffles, you will need a waffle iron. Clas Ohlson sell them for only £14.99! Go get, you won’t regret it:

Here is the recipe:

Time: about 30 minutes.
Makes 6-10 waffles

You will need:

  • 100g butter, salted is fine
  • 300ml flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 400ml milk

Toppings:

  • whipped cream
  • jam, raspberry is the classic for waffles!
  • fresh berries
  • syrup
  • vanilla ice cream

These are just suggestions, try and see what you like! Come up with any new topping ideas? We’d love to hear all about them!

Melt the butter and let it cool down. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Stir in half of the milk and whisk until smooth. Add the rest of the milk and the melted butter and whisk until smooth.
Make sure that the waffle iron is HOT. Brush butter onto both top and bottom halves of the waffle iron before pouring about 75-100ml of batter onto the iron and close it. Leave to cook for about 1-2 minutes depending on just how golden you like you waffles.

Enjoy! smile
