I love waffles that are a little crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I received a waffle maker as a gift a couple of years ago and have finally found my go-to recipe. Waffles are really easy to whip up, and I love accompanying my fluffy and delicious waffles with fresh fruit and warm real maple syrup.
Making waffles reminds me of when I used to work at Ben and Jerry’s scooping ice cream. One of our job duties was making waffle cones in a waffle maker. I remember the sweet scent when making the vanilla waffle cones and trying to make the perfect one.
When Lance and I are unsure of what to make for dinner, usually breakfast is the first thing that pops in our heads. Breakfast for dinner is a favorite of ours especially making waffles from scratch. Sometimes we put a little vanilla extract in and other times blueberries if we have them on hand. These waffles are always a treat when we have them!
When I was little I used to love pouring maple syrup on my waffle until every square was covered. No matter how you eat your waffle, you will love these!
