Waffles Day - Våffeldagen

This one is pretty self-explanatory. It involves waffles; wonderful jam, or sylt in Swedish and some whipped cream. Here is a quote from some local press on what waffle day means to the Swedish: “It means you're allowed to gorge on said food all day long without feeling guilty”. Who said anything about guilt? Even the carb-conscious gets a day off. Nobody should be marginalised. This is Sweden.

Recipe Waffles

1.25 cups cold water
1.5 cups flour
1 pinch of salt
2 cups of whipping cream
butter for the waffle iron
whipping cream

Mix water, flour and salt until smooth. Whip cream until stiff and fold together with batter. Bake with butter in a waffle iron at full power and put them on a grid to cool. If you don’t have a waffle iron or sandwich press, cook them as you would pancakes. Beat the cream and place on waffles with raspberry, strawberry or cloudberry jam.

How to do it like a local:

There is no trick. You just eat it. With a coffee. There is nothing done in Sweden without a coffee. And especially not waffles.
