It is waffle day in Sweden. If you thought Swedes had a love for godis, they also are crazy for waffles.
This year I won’t be celebrating waffle day today but will over the weekend. For those interested my friend, E, gave me the best recipe for dinkelvåfflor. These are waffles made with spelt, a high fiber and protein flour. They are healthy and delicious!
2 ½ dl dinkelmjöl
1,25 tsk bakpulver
3 dl mjölk eller grädde
75 gram smör
1 tsk vanille
– All items should be at room temperature
– Make sure to melt the butter before incorporating into the mix
– Let sit for 10 minutes to allow the baking powder to activate
Toppings for Waffles:
Traditional toppings on waffles in Sweden are sylt (jam), fresh strawberries, and whipped cream. I enjoy all that and ice cream. That’s because I am crazy.
If you want a savory waffle, you can make waffles like mini sandwiches. Since waffles in Sweden are shaped as hearts, you can tear them apart and serve individually.
Some savory toppings on waffles: Basil cream (philly cream cheese mixed with fresh basil), ham, egg, mushroom, fresh shrimps (like a mini räksalad on top of toast).
What is your favorite topping on waffles?
