Easily obtainable breakfast that you can dress up in various ways to make breakfast a little extra special Sunday mornings. Or have them for dinner, as a snack, whenever! Top them with powdered sugar, whip cream, maple syrup, berries, butter or whatever else you can imagine.
The easiest way to know your waffles are done is if the steam has stopped coming out of the waffle iron. I had set the iron on 4. But I gauge it by the steam. Also, my iron makes 4 square at a time, so if you have a circular one, it’ll probably make bigger waffles. Check out the iron I have here ; it comes with a convenient pancake plate too that makes perfect pancakes like the ones in this recipe.
If you have leftover waffles, you can throw them in the fridge and when you want more, pop them in the toaster for a couple minutes!
