August 24: Celebrate Waffle Day
In Scandinavia, people celebrate birthdays, namedays and half birthdays. It's a good system, yes?! especially for all who love fresh flowers and sweet cakes. The same schtick applies to Waffle Day -- there are two, one on March 25 (that's the "international" waffle day) and another on August 24 (the "national" waffle day). Whatever. It's a good system for waffle lovers.
First, meet the food blog dedicated to waffles named, aptly, Crispy Waffle. Sheryl insists that waffles be leavened with instant yeast -- no baking powder, here -- and her favorite waffle recipe is mixed the night before, making it perfect for weekend mornings. If you can't find instant yeast, a commenter suggests how to use active dry yeast in Sheryl's post for perfect waffles.
