Believe it or not, I am not a breakfast fan. Most days, I skip or have something small such as a yogurt. I know, not the smartest and breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, but I just can’t do it.
If my family and I go out to breakfast, I order a yogurt parfait, or a few sides from the menu. I’m no fun, I know! However, I do love the occasional breakfast dinner. Especially waffles, so anytime I add those to the meal plan, I get quite excited!
When my hubby and I first married, both of us weren’t too knowledgeable in the kitchen. I could make a few simple meals, but waffles to me came from Bisquick. It’s what I knew from childhood and loved as a kid. My hubby, being a HUGE breakfast fan, didn’t love waffles. Talk about opposites attracting, right?!!?
Well, after trying a fruit variety at a local breakfast spot, he told me he didn’t like the boxed mix waffles, but did in fact enjoy Belgian waffles. Immediately, I knew we had to test different at home recipes and see if we could come to agreement on one. We purchased a Belgian waffle maker from Amazon (highly recommend, see link below) and began testing. Our first few batches were complete failures. Either a sticky mess, burnt, terrible flavor, too tough, too soft, and more.
It was quite the discouraging trial until THIS recipe. This was the first recipe we both agreed upon! We immediately gave it two thumbs up and declared it our new go to. We have tweaked it a few times since then and now, its pure perfection!
The texture is great, slightly crisp on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. Perfectly golden color and a hint of vanilla flavor. We love to pile fresh fruit on ours, whereas my kids enjoy theirs with way too much syrup, haha!
Once you try this waffle recipe, you’ll never look back!
