What began in 2014 in a waffle cafe in Chicago has now spun-off into a steadily climbing trend as people find more and more creative ways to enjoy two classics mashed into one – the waffle, and the donut. Oh yes indeedy. Simply put, instead of frying the donuts in oil, they’re griddled in a waffle iron. Drizzle that with glaze, sprinkles, chocolate, and pretty much anything else you can think of, and you have yourself a wonut. Woah, that’s nuts (sorry, had to). It’s not surprising this is a trend, because these days, everything is being made into waffle form, and why the heck not? It makes little tiny caverns for your icing/glaze/gravy/topping of choice and that’s just delicious and convenient. While the wonut shop scene is dying, the at-home versions are still as hot as ever since it’s a way to enjoy a creative homemade donut, without the fryer. Try it for yourself and I’m sure you’ll be saying “Woah, that’s nuts.”
