Waffles are one of my favorite breakfast treats. A few years ago I bought a Cuisinart waffle maker to make my own. Freezing the extras is a great way to have fast waffles anytime. After much experimenting, I have 2 delicious, reliable waffle recipes to share.

Waffle maker. Uses about 1/3 cup batter per square.

Yeasted Belgian Style Waffles

The first of 2 delicious and reliable waffle recipes takes a little planning as it is yummiest if you make it the night before and let it do it thing overnight in the refrigerator. I cannot take credit for this recipe. After fooling with yeast recipes I found this one by King Arthur Flour that has great taste and texture. Yeasted Belgian style Waffles by King Arther Flour. All the work is done the night before so all you need to do is heat up the waffle maker. Try them! They are so worth it.

I love maple syrup and living in Canada we have access to fairly affordable maple syrup. As it must be stored in the refrigerator I like to pour it into a ramekin and give it 20 seconds in the microwave. The smell of warm maple syrup is intoxicating!

    1. When I haven't used my waffle maker in a while I heat it up and brush it well with coconut oil. Coconut oil's high cracking temperature means it doesn't get sticky.
  1. Hmmm...malted milk powder? I've never heard of that...can I find it in a normal grocery store? My kids LOVE waffles and would eat them every day if I let them! I've always used mixes but have wanted a great homemade recipe!
    1. I used to get it from King Arthur Flour and you can also order it from Amazon. It’s adds a nice flavor for a change.
