What is a Waffle?
A waffle is a batter- or dough-based cake cooked in a waffle iron patterned to give a distinctive and characteristic shape. There are many variations based on the type and shape of the iron and the recipe used.

Waffles are eaten throughout the world, particularly in Belgium and the United States. Common toppings are strawberries, chocolate, sugar, honey, syrups, ice cream, and pieces of other fruits. (Wikipedia)

A waffle iron comes in many shapes and sizes – and they have been around for hundreds of years.  Last year we shared history of the waffle iron.

Waffles are one of those fun foods to make and eat.  There seems to be an unlimited number of recipes, toppings, and foods to go along with Waffles.  One such variation is a dinner time with fried chicken (my grandson Evan enjoys this meal).

So go ahead, find a new recipe or make up your own and enjoy a Waffle!!
