There is considerable debate as to the origins of waffles. The Dutch insist that they invented them, though the classic modern Dutch stroopwafels (syrup waffles) were actually invented in Gouda during the 18th Century, though chiffon waffles, made with separated eggs were certainly known in the Netherlands in the 16th century. The Belgians also claim that waffles are a Belgian invention and the classic Belgian waffle, leavened with yeast certainly has a long pedigree. But the oldest reference to waffles we have comes from an English recipe for waffles in a 14th century cookbook. Today, however, British waffles tend to be savory potato cakes served as a main meal accompaniment rather than for breakfast. There are two main types of waffles. The standard waffle, where all the ingredients are simply combined together, and the 'chiffon waffle' where the eggs are separated before being mixed. Typically the chiffon waffle is lighter and fluffier than the standard waffle.
