Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to this wonderful dessert. It is a great version of making regular waffles, but several times healthier for your body. The holiday is celebrated annually on March 11.
Historians believe that the first waffles were made as far back as the Ancient Greeks. They were called “obleios. The dough was placed between two hot plates of metal. At that time, waffles were not a dessert. They were seasoned with cheese and herbs. Gradually the waffle recipe penetrated into Europe. There they were made with lean dough (water and flour). Waffles were often available from street vendors. They were especially in demand during Lent.
The appearance of oatmeal-nut waffles correlates with the 18th and 19th centuries, when the food industry was actively developing and culinary experiments were conducted. The use of oatmeal and crushed nuts made it possible to achieve an excellent taste of the dessert, as well as make it much healthier than other versions of the dish.
- The waffle iron was invented in 1869 by Cornelius Swartwout, a New Yorker.
- The waffle’s fluted surface serves more than just a decorative role. It allows you to hold the filling without allowing it to spread.
