Make scrumptious Swedish waffles with Leila Lindholm

On March 25 every year, Swedes open up their waffle irons so they can indulge in freshly baked waffles with jam and whipped cream. This delicious tradition actually originates from a misunderstanding. The original Christian celebration on that day, Annunciation Day, in Swedish is called Vårfrudagen, which sounded very much like the word Våffeldagen, meaning Waffle Day.
