Waffles

We love waffles, but eat them far less regularly than we do pancakes.  And I”m not sure why.  They’re actually just as easy to make with my neat little waffle iron.

I almost always make plain waffles and then also some blueberry waffles – especially for Nolan, who is a big blueberry fan.

I use the same recipe as I do for pancakes, but am careful not to add too much milk, since batter for waffles needs to be on the thicker side.

To add blueberries, I pour about as much batter onto the waffle iron as I normally would, add a few blueberries to the top, poking them down just a bit, then I drizzle a tiny bit more batter on top of the berries.  This helps get them nestled into the center of the waffle and also keeps the blueberry from sticking to the waffle iron.

*Waffle iron tip:  Keep a can of cooking spray nearby when making waffles, and lightly spray periodically.

  1. I really, REALLY want a Belgian waffle maker with the removable plates. That’s why I never use my waffle iron – I hate cleaning it. :-) But then again, I’m too cheap to buy the one with removable plates. Ha!

  2. I just made these for my girls, for lunch of all meals. :-) They were fantastic! I used 1/2 and 1/2 whole wheat/white flour, and used coconut oil because I only had salted butter and the recipe already has a plenty of salt. I am definitely hanging onto this recipe and will make it again and again. Thanks!

  3. Made these for breakfast this morning. I got 6 waffles total, and my 3 boys split 2 of them. 4 are going in the freezer. Yay! They are good, but very filling! Next time I think I’ll add some vanilla extract to them.
