No Waffling-Waffle Day

Quick, dig out that waffle iron. Today is International Waffle Day. Not to be confused with just plain 'ole Waffle Day which is August 24 (that's the day the first patent for a Waffle maker was issued to Cornelius Swartwout) or, International Chicken And Waffles Day which is October 3, 2008, International Waffle Day is a Swedish tradition which has been adopted world wide. No waffling for me, I'm going to drop these recipes and then, I'm going shopping! Enjoy International Waffle Day.

The scanned recipe pages below (click to enlarge) are from an Aunt Jemima leaflet titled Magical Recipes.
