Did You Know?
American waffles are made from a batter leavened with baking powder. They are usually served as a sweet breakfast food, topped with butter and various syrups, but are also found in many different savory dishes, such as fried chicken and waffles or topped with kidney stew. They may also be served as desserts, topped with ice cream and various other toppings. They are generally denser and thinner than the Belgian waffle.

Waffles were first introduced to North America in 1620 by Pilgrims who brought the method from Holland.

Thomas Jefferson brought a waffle iron from France, and waffle frolics or parties became popular in the late eighteenth century.
