Swedish Crisp Waffles (Frasvafflor)


Waffles are a very popular street food and coffee shop item in Sweden. We also eat them specifically on the Feast of the Annunciation because “Vårfrudagen” (Lady Day in Swedish) sounded a lot like “våffeldagen”, thus became Waffle Day! These are a lot crisper and lighter than American and Belgian waffles and contain no eggs. Serve immediately with whipped cream and fresh fruit or jam.
