Waffle Day!

Mar 27, 2021

It is Waffle Day!

While (Belgian) waffles in the US are often eaten for breakfast (and have deep pockets), "German" waffles (or ๐—ช๐—ฎ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ป) are normally served in lieu of cake for coffee and cake in the afternoon. (I just call them German to distinguish them from the fluffier and thicker American or Belgian waffles.)

The "German" waffles have a heart shape, are thinner, and you traditionally eat them with ๐—ฅ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐—š๐—ฟ๐˜‚ฬˆ๐˜๐˜‡๐—ฒ (red berry compote) and ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—ต๐—ป๐—ฒ (whipped cream). Though, you can obviously eat them like you want.

In the local museum / cafรฉ "๐——๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—›๐˜‚๐˜€" (low German for 'das alte Haus' or 'the/that old house') in Aukrug, Schleswig-Holstein, waffles are the only thing that is served. You find a seat, in our case a table in the museum's garden, a waiter brings you a pot of coffee (you can order other beverages), and then a plate of waffles along with compote and whipped cream. When you run out of waffles, they'll bring you another plate.

It is advised to put down the compote and whipped cream on your plate first and then use your waffle heart as a scoop.

Getting hungry? You can buy a waffle maker here (, affiliate link) and make sure you use the right recipe, like this one:
