Happy National Waffle Day (U.S.)!

August 24, 2009

Regardless of whether you’re baking any vegan waffles today, if you live in the U.S., consider taking a few silent moments away from your busy schedule to acknowledge the vital contribution of Cornelius Swartwout on this date in 1869. That’s when he patented the first waffle iron in the U.S. If you live elsewhere, I’m curious to know when the waffle maker came to your country, and whether you have a National Waffle Day.

Thanks, Cornelius!
