In Sweden the Feast of the Annunciation is familiarly called Vaffelsdagen (Waffle Day), and here is a favorite recipe for that dish. Lingonberries is the traditional Swedish topping.

DIRECTIONS

Sift the flour with the salt and add to the cream together with the water which should be ice cold. Keep this batter in the refrigerator for one to two hours. Then melt the butter and add to the batter. Heat the waffle iron and bake your waffles as usual. Serve with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon, or stewed lingonberries.
