In honor of Mother's Day tomorrow, I thought I would share my Mom's recipe for Belgian waffles. Just like her banana bread and whipped shortbread recipes, I have tweaked this recipe to accommodate our food sensitivities. (gluten for Stella and I, cow's milk for Sadie) If you don't need to worry about food allergies, you can use regular flour and cow's milk instead of almond milk.
This recipe is simple to make and uses basic ingredients that I (usually) have on hand.
I usually get 5 waffles per batch, but sometimes I will double it so we have leftovers. We just pop these babies in the toaster and they are just as good as when they come out of the waffle iron.
Speaking of waffle irons, mine has been falling apart for months now, so I finally ordered myself a new one. This is the model I had been using, but it didn't stand up very well. I explored some other options and decided to give this more budget-friendly option a try.
I am happy to report that my new $35 dollar waffle iron works great! I found it really easy to use and WAY easier to clean than my previous one.
The instruction manual that came with the waffle iron suggested making brownie waffles...um...how genius is that? I gave it a try midweek and it was a hit with the family!
With a scoop of ice cream on top, this was a delicious treat! I attribute my love of cooking and baking to my mom and I am so grateful to her for sharing her tried and true recipes with me over the years. I hope my kids will also use and share these recipes...specifically I hope they use this waffle recipe tomorrow morning and make me breakfast in bed...hint hint!
Thanks so much for reading, and if you have any questions or comments, please leave them for me below!
