Waffles

My husband is not a stranger to making breakfast for me.  However it seemed extra special when he made these waffles for me on Valentine’s Day.

Typically when my husband makes waffles he uses Bisquick and a couple of other ingredients. When he reached for the Bisquick he realized we were out.  Now what?  Honestly, a bagel would have been just fine with me.  However, he was not willing to admit defeat so he turned to Google and found this recipe.

I’m glad we ran out of Bisquick because these are the best waffles he’s ever made.  In fact, after my first forkful of waffle heaven I immediately said to my hubby, “We need to blog about this.”  True story.

They taste like a combination of a waffle and a popover.  They are light and fluffy on the inside and crunchy on the outside.  Well, they’re crunchy as long as you cook them long enough, which is the way I love them.

Morning breakfast time with my boo is priceless.  I enjoy our time together and having someone cook for me doesn’t hurt.  😉

We eat our waffles with a simple pat of butter (okay, I like a lot of butter) and maple syrup (the real stuff, not what my husband refers to as “plastic syrup”).  Of course you can slather these with Nutella or peanut butter or go the healthy route and top them with some fresh fruit.  They also make a perfect base for a delicious dessert calorie fest.  Just add ice cream, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream on top for something a lot like a waffle sundae.

How do you take your waffles?

Waffles Recipe
(About 6 servings)

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 and 3/4 cups milk (any kind will do)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1.  Preheat your waffle iron, and spray it with non-stick cooking spray.  You only need to spray it one time for an entire batch of waffles.  There is usually no need to spray it between every waffle.
  2. Crack the eggs into a large bowl.
  3. Using a hand mixer, beat the eggs until they are a bit foamy.
  4. Add the oil, milk, vanilla extract, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to the bowl.
  5. Once everything is in the bowl, beat the mixture just until the lumps are gone.
  6. Pour the batter into the hot waffle iron, and cook until golden brown.
  7. Remove from the waffle iron, top with anything you like on waffles, and enjoy.

  1. I would love a stack of these piping hot waffles served in bed! A few months ago my waffles iron, rest in peace, is no longer with us. You make me want to run off to Fortress today and get a replacement. Sharing of course!

      Oh no! I hate it when kitchen gadgets break.

  2. Ashley says:

    I’m a waffle girl all the way – these look awesome! I love mine slathered with a little nut butter, a drizzle of honey and then some fruit!

    1. Tina says:

      Thanks so much Ashley! 🙂

    That is some perfect looking waffles, Tina! Your husband is a good, good man! Great job! I don’t know how I’ve managed to still not have a waffle maker when I drool over them all the time. But seriously, these belgian waffles look so crisp and perfect. I only need maple syrup (and a waffle maker).

    1. Tina says:

      I’ll lend you my waffle maker! 😉

    My husband has always been a waffle enthousiast and I’m recently reformed. I used to like pancakes a whole lot more than waffles, now it’s about 50-50.

    I tried your recipe, found it very good, I might have taken them out a little too fast, so I didn’t have quite the crunch, but still really good.

    And I like mine topped with fresh strawberry jam and sometimes, when the calories don’t count, with dots of whipped cream on top.

    1. Tina says:

      I’m so glad that you liked this recipe! Sometimes we’re starving so we get anxious and remove them quickly. I find the later batches are more crunchy, simply because we’ve had 1 or 2 to hold us over and we leave the later batches in longer. I’m 50/50 with pancakes and waffles too… I think it just depends on my mood.
      I appreciate you stopping by. 🙂
