Tuesday Recipe: National Waffle Day

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014
Waffles March 25, 2014 is National Waffle Day. What better way to celebrate than with scrumptious waffles? If you have a waffle maker, today is the day to grease it up and get ready to grill.

Waffle Day began in Sweden as Vaffeldagen, due to confusion between the Swedish “varfrudagen” meaning “Our Lady’s Day” which occurs on the same date, historically marking the beginning of spring, celebrated by eating waffles. Sounds like a rather delightful way to welcome the season, don’t you think?

Alternatively, the American Waffle Day on August 24th honors the anniversary of the patenting of the first United States waffle iron invented by Cornelius Swarthout. We think waffles are special enough to be celebrated  both days.

Simple Whole Wheat Waffles For Any Morning

(or noon or night…)


  • 1 1/2 cups 100% whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or vegetable oil
1 Qt. Maine Maple Syrup

Preheat your iron while you make the waffle batter. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and butter or oil. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. The batter will be a bit lumpy; that’s okay. Cook the waffles as directed in the instructions that came with your waffle iron.

Apple Pie Jelly Easy Gluten Free Waffles


  • 1 cup 1/2 gluten free all-purpose baking flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp Stevia (or 1 tbl. Sugar)
  • 1 tbl. oil
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Mix the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar together.In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites and vanilla until stiff peaks form that resemble whipped cream.Add the milk, egg yolks, and oil to the dry ingredients and blend together. With a rubber spatula, slowly fold in egg whites with the rest of the ingredients. The entire mix should be light and fluffy. Spray waffle iron and begin making waffles.

New Ways With Waffles – Topping Ideas

Warning: You may want to try more than one!

Pumpkin Spice: Add desired amount of pumpkin pie spice to batter then top waffles with crumbled ginger snaps and maple syrup.

Tutti Fruity: Add any combination of fresh fruit to your waffle with fresh whipped cream or yogurt. Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, oh my!

Savory Baked Potato: Make any dinner more interesting with waffles! Load the waffles up with sour cream, scallions, bacon and hashbrowns.

Fig & Pear Jam

Blueberries are traditionally a summer fruit but who says you can only enjoy them in August? No time to make your own mix? Check out the Maine made blueberry pancake mix available on our website.

Blueberry Basket Table Runner
Blueberry Yogurt Multigrain Pancakes
Makes 12 to 14 4-inch pancakes
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain, full-fat yogurt
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tbls butter, plus extra for skillet
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup barley or rye flour
  • 2 tbls sugar
  • 1 tbls plus 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 1 cup blueberries, rinsed and dried


Blueberry Pancake Mix
  • Melt half of butter. Remove from heat and stir in second tablespoon of butter until melted.
  • Whisk egg and yogurt together in a medium bowl. If you’re using a thin yogurt, no need to add any milk. If you’re using regular yogurt, stir in 2 tablespoons milk. If you’re using a thick/strained or Greek-style yogurt, add 3 to 4 tablespoons milk. Whisk in melted butter, zest and vanilla extract.
  • In a separate, small bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir dry ingredients into wet only until dry ingredients are moistened. A few remaining lumps is fine.
  • Preheat your oven to 200°F and have a baking sheet ready to keep pancakes warm. Heat your skillet or saute pan to medium. Melt a pat of butter in the bottom and pour 1/4 cup (about 3 tablespoons) batter at a time, leaving space between each pancake. Press a few berries into the top of each pancake. When the pancakes are dry around the edges and you can see bubbles forming on the top, about 3 to 4 minutes, flip them and cook for another 3 minutes, until golden underneath. Transfer pancakes to warm oven as they are done cooking, until you’re ready to serve them.
