It’s National Waffle Day!

If your house is anything like mine, waffles are a necessity for life. PJ would eat waffles probably every day I think. That and grilled cheese sandwiches. But today, we do waffles!

Waffle Day History

Now for your Waffle Day history lesson. Waffle Day actually commemorates the anniversary of the first waffle iron patent issued, not the creation of the waffle. Waffles have actually been around since the 14th Century when a husband penned the first known waffle recipe as a set of instructions for his wife.

On August 24, 1869, Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York received his patent for the waffle iron. We know waffles existed long before then, but the invention made waffles more readily available.

More Fun Facts
  • 1911 : The first electric waffle iron is introduced by General Electric.
  • 1953 : Eggo Frozen Waffles are sold in supermarkets for the first time.
