The Delicious History of the Waffle

The Delicious History of the Waffle

From Simplicity to Sophistication

A hot waffle fresh from the iron is a breakfast delight that has stood the test of time. But where exactly did this culinary marvel originate, and how has it evolved over the centuries? Let's take a tasty trip down memory lane and uncover the history of the waffle, culminating in the game-changing innovation from Dilettoso with their organic oat flour mix.

The Birthplace of the Waffle

The story of the waffle begins in ancient Greece. The Greeks were known to cook flat cakes called "obelios" between two metal plates. These early waffles were simple and lacked the distinctive grid pattern we've come to associate with waffles today. Fast forward to the Middle Ages in Europe, and waffles began to take a more familiar form.

In Belgium and France, "wafel" or "gaufre" made their appearance, cooked over an open fire using intricate irons imprinted with coats of arms or religious symbols. The batter was a mix of flour, water, and eggs, making it a humble but delightful treat.

Evolution of Ingredients

Waffle recipes started simple but evolved significantly over the centuries. The introduction of ingredients like butter, sugar, and leavening agents in the 16th century added flavor and texture, creating the fluffy waffles we love today.

In the 18th century, waffles made their way to America with Dutch immigrants. By the 19th century, waffle irons with the iconic honeycomb pattern became popular, giving waffles the look we're all familiar with. The versatile nature of waffles allowed them to become a staple in both sweet and savory dishes.

The Dilettoso Revolution

While traditional waffles have long been a favorite, Dilettoso has taken the waffle game to a whole new level with their organic oat flour mix.
