Spring announces its arrival in many ways. But in Sweden, golden waffles with jam signal the coming of spring. Yes, only an Authentic Swedish Waffles Recipe will do!
Don’t Waffle on a Good Breakfast
When I lived in downtown Chicago, there were several Swedish diners that served authentic Swedish waffles, and I was lucky enough to live just around the corner from one — Ann Sather.
When I first discovered these treasure troves, I thought I had found heaven.
I can actually inhale the scent of these wonderful places just thinking about them.
You see, some people are egg people. They like omelets or scrambled eggs or Eggs Benedict.
Not me! I’m a waffle girl.
So when I heard about Swedish waffles, I thought I’d have to try them out to see what all of the fuss is about.
My first surprise was that the Swedes do not put syrup on their waffles. Oh no!
They’re traditionally served with whipped cream and wild lingonberry jam (affiliate).
Plus, Swedish waffles are slightly thinner than the American version so you can enjoy several.
Yes, the ingredients for the waffles are important. But just as important is the kind of jam you put on it.
Please please please make sure you get the really good stuff, such as Felix Lingonberry Jam.
