Plautdietsch word of the day: wofeliesa

Plautdietsch word of the day: wofeliesa

Pronounced: vo-ful-ee-sa

What it sounds like: A name for a walking doll.

What it means: waffle iron.

The one pictured here is of the earliest design that fit over the largest hole on a wood burning cook-stove. The "Mennonite" variety are thinner than Belgian waffles and are served with that famous white sauce!

Here we see Willie Poetker enjoying waffles and white sauce!  The recipe for the famous white sauce and many other traditional Mennonite favorites are included in The Mennonite Treasury of Recipes, which has remained the go-to standard for Mennonite recipes.
