In the late 14th century, the first known waffle recipe appeared in an anonymous manuscript, written by a husband as a set of instructions to his young wife. The recipe read: “Beat some eggs in a bowl, season with salt and add wine, toss in some flour and mix. Then fill, little by little, two irons at a time with as much of the paste as a slice of cheese is large. Then close the iron and cook both sides. If the dough does not detach easily from the iron, coat it first with a piece of cloth that has been soaked in oil or grease.”

The other thing that makes this recipe great is that most of the ingredients should be in your pantry, making it just perfect for whenever the mood strikes.
