If you ever decide to buy a waffle maker, or you already have a waffle maker but never use it because you don’t have the right waffle mix, then this is the recipe you need because it makes the most delicious, light and fluffy waffles.
I recently bought a waffle maker after increased doubts I would actually put it to good use. I mean how often was I really going to make waffles, and how often did I actually even want my kids eating waffles anyways? Besides, once the initial hype of making waffles at home ends, my waffle maker was probably going to end up way back in my pantry and never come back out.
In spite of my initial reluctance I really enjoy having a waffle maker at home, thanks to this simple recipe that uses just a few standard ingredients. I must admit we don’t eat as much waffles as we did when we first got our waffle maker, but it does make an appearance more often than I had imagined. Homemade waffles is a great treat for the whole family, especially on Sunday mornings, and a tasty afterschool snack guaranteed to bring a smile to any kid.
A sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar over waffles is how my kids enjoy them, but adding some fresh fruit and whipped cream also never disappoints. What’s your favorite waffle topping?
