International Waffle Day is today

International Waffle is today!  25th March and whilst everything around us seems to be changing I need to recognise days like this just to feel some semblance of normality, don’t you?

International Waffle Day

Since international Waffle Day also falls around Easter I decided a few years ago to combine the two and decided I would experiment a bit.  Regular readers will know I am a huge fan of waffles and that this blog has loads of them, including these chocolate and coconut Bounty waffles.    You know me, I do like to try and make things a bit “what on earth is that” and out of the ordinary so I thought I would have a go at making a waffle with Easter eggs IN them

Madness I know, and I thought it would be a complete disaster because the chocolate would melt all over the waffle machine.   However, it didn’t. The batter rose and covered the chocolatey eggs, encasing them in waffly magic.

Why not give them a go, yourself?

  • Just going for my run… But these look tasty for when I return! My waffle maker always seems to stick. Do you have to pre oil yours? Mind you it’s pretty old. Could probably do with an upgrade!!

    • Nope, have never had to grease mine for waffles, though I do if I am waffling something other than waffles. Then I use one of those squirty oils like Flora.

      • Ok. I’ll try it!! (Wondered if you would delete my comment above tho as the url is wrong and it is linking to something dodgy which I need to sort out and I’m pretty sure you don’t want that link on here. ) many thanks. Ann
