The waffle has been around in some form since the 10th century and it’s origins are in the communion wafer irons that came into use at that time. It was another five hundred years before the addition of beer yeast for leavening brought about the recognizable grid motif of the modern waffle. From the beginning, however, the popular waffle has often sported more decorative patterns than the simple grid and there have long been waffle irons to create a myriad of patterns in this delightful treat.
