Being at work I don't have access to my books but I'll offer
an opinion.
Wafres were pretty much a constant companion of the evening
meal throughout Europe. They were made with a thin batter,
often including wine, and fried thin and crisp between two metal
Wafres could be savory or sweet with additions of soft cheese,
herbs, spices and often topped with a sweet powder mixture.

Making sweet wafres with saffron is definately probable since
saffron was very common for color and flavor and would give
the wafres a golden color.

I'd have to see the recipe to make a better assumption and
would need to go through my files at home to try to find the
period version. But, with what I've been given, I would have to
say they are period.
