Waffle Day? Yes, Please.

Big. News. Today is Waffle Day. What is Waffle Day, you ask? According to the website Days of the Year, “Waffle Day began in Sweden as Våffeldagen, actually due to confusion between the Swedish “vårfrudagen” meaning “Our Lady’s Day” which falls on the same date. The day historically marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated by the eating of many waffles.”

We don’t know about you, but we fully plan on observing this very serious celebration of sweetness. We’ve compiled (and collaged) a few of our favorite recipes that you can make yourself.

Rainbow Waffles(!)

Try not to smile looking at this creation from Tablespoon.com. We dare you.

Recipe

  • In a large bowl, whisk together Bisquick™, eggs and milk until smooth.
  • Divide the batter into six portions, around 1/3 cup each, giving a little extra to the bowls for the red and orange colors.
  • Use gel food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) to color each bowl of batter to your desired vibrancy. Whisk in food coloring until evenly blended.
  • Transfer each color of batter to its own piping bag and cut off the tips (careful not to spill the batter).
  • Carefully pour each color into a heated circle waffle maker to make your rainbow, starting with red, then orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Cook according to waffle maker instructions.
  • Remove, and repeat with remaining batter. Cut each waffle in half.
  • Serve with whipped cream for clouds and Lucky Charms™ as the treasure at the end of the rainbow.
