Waffles

My Favorite Waffle RecipeI never liked pancakes growing up and waffles were only okay if I used so much butter and real maple syrup that it’d ooze out as I cut them.  I never put two and two together, but my mom hates pancakes and waffles.  I mean she NEVER eats them and makes them only after much nagging.  Don’t tell her, but I think I hated them growing up because they were terrible!  Mom’s a fantastic cook, but if she doesn’t like something, she doesn’t try really hard to make that dish tasty.

My Favorite Waffle RecipeFast forward a few decades to life as a mom and I realized that I do indeed adore both pancakes and waffles.  It took me a while to find the perfect waffle recipe.  This one is it.  I use a “motel style” Belgian waffle maker only. I like the deep divots for holding butter and syrup on our waffles.    Although this recipe takes an extra bowl and the mixer, it is worth the effort.My favorite waffle recipe

    I love waffles, but I don't have a waffle maker. I'll have to put one on my wish list. I will save this recipe for when I get my waffle maker.

  5. >Kids must have had fun and the best part is that they get to eat waffles. I like that you can freeze them and pop them into the toaster as I always have so many leftovers.
