WHAT ARE GERMAN WAFFLES

German waffles what we call in German the “Kaffeeklatsch” (that means the usual gossip while sipping a cup of coffee with a piece of cake). The regular American waffle irons make rectangle waffles but the authentic German waffles are usually made with a heart shaped waffle iron.
