Waffles are a much-loved confection around the world. Pandan waffles are a regular sight in neighbourhood bakeries around Singapore. In Sweden, there is a special day to celebrate waffles.

Waffle Day or Våffeldagen on 25 March marks the beginning of spring, and Swedes enjoy this treat with jam and whipped cream, or simply with coffee

Swedish waffles are flatter than the more famous Belgian waffles; they are usually made in a special waffle maker which creates heart-shaped waffles. 

The Belgian version was introduced to the world at the Brussels World’s Fair in 1958. They eventually became a hugely popular breakfast food in the US and other parts of the world.

In Singapore, waffles are typically eaten at brunch or as an indulgent snack topped with fruits, honey, maple syrup, chocolate sauce, or ice cream. We ask chefs in Singapore how they enjoy their waffles.
