Celebrate U.S. National Waffle Day With 14 Delicious Waffle Recipes

National Waffle Day Recipes

Today is National Waffle Day! Observed in the United States on August 24, National Waffle Day celebrates the anniversary of the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron. In 1869, Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York received a patent for a device to bake waffles. But don’t get confused! The U.S. National Waffle Day is not the same as International Waffle Day.

International Waffle Day is celebrated on March 25.

In Sweden, Vårfrudagen (Our Lady’s Day) is celebrated on March 25, nine months before Christmas, on the Christian holiday of Annunciation. Vårfrudagen sounds a lot like Våffeldagen, and due to the confusion between the two words, the day also became known as Waffle Day.

Over time, Waffle Day also became a celebration of the beginning of spring, when Swedish women would move from winter tasks to spring tasks, which included the preparing of waffles. Waffle Day is now celebrated around the World by eating waffles.

We’ll have all new waffle recipes to wow you with in March, and until then, you can enjoy these 12 mouthwatering waffle recipes, perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert!
