The Lady Day = Vårfrudagen in Sweden.
Waffle Day actually started as a linguistic misunderstanding - it's Lady Day and in Swedish that's called "Vårfrudagen".
That was quickly transformed into "Våffeldagen" = Waffle Day" which sounds somewhat similar."
Crispy Wafflesmakes at least 12
360 g all-purpose flour
500 ml milk
125 g butter melted
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
200 ml ice cold sparkling water
1 tsp baking powder
Whisk together all ingredients except for the baking powder, and leave for fifteen minutes.
(You might be able to leave it for longer, but I think it's better to add the mineral water when you're close to baking.)
Add the baking powder when you're ready to bake.
Bake, using a waffle maker.
You might have to grease it slightly before the first waffle.
Don't use too much batter, or the waffles won't be as crispy.
It is good to eat them with whipped cream and a good jam or fresh berries.
I wish Patricia Antonia Friedson a really nice and pleasant birthday on July 27! I hope you, Patricia, see this and know that it would be...
