Golden, Delicious & Syrupy…It’s Waffle Bake Time in Lufkin
The year is 1957. Dwight D. Eisenhower is President of the U.S. The Brooklyn Dodgers make the move to Los Angeles. The music world is caught up in Rock 'n Roll led by Elvis. The price of an average home was about $20,000 and a gallon of gas would set you back 24 cents. And, the Lufkin Rotary Waffle Bake was born.
The Lufkin Rotarians are getting things set for their 65th annual Waffle Bake. It will be held nightly from November 30 through December 2 at the Angelina College Cafeteria. Delicious waffles and sausages will be served from 5:30 - 7:30 each evening.
Last year's Waffle Bake was a drive through only event due to safety protocols that were in place. This year, you have the option to dine-in or drive through. If you choose to stay in your car, just enter the area from Daniel McCall Drive and then just follow the signs.
All tickets for the Waffle Bake are $5/each and can be purchased from any Lufkin Rotarian or at the door.
65 years of serving up some of the best waffles you've ever tasted, and 65 years of keeping the recipe secret. Sure, flour, milk, eggs and sugar are some of the standards, but some say that the Rotarians have made a deal with Tinker Bell to have her spread some magic dust in the batter.
Whatever the secret may be, all I know is that the end result is an ultra-delicious waffle served with love by the Lufkin Rotarians. Here's a look at some of the happenings at last year's drive through event.
