Waffles are simply pancakes that have aspired to something more than their basic ingredients, if you think about it (Waffle Love). Waffles are an idea that was so wonderful it continued being reinvented—with amazing results. There are over a dozen different variations of waffles around the world, with different batters and toppings; waffles are an idea that was so good it kept being reinvented—with delicious outcomes. They come in all shapes and sizes, are crunchy or chewy, sugared or spiced, and we adore them!
Sweet Sweet Waffles- Waffle Love
Waffles are traditionally served with butter and maple syrup, as well as fruit and whipped cream (Waffle Love). There’s no reason not to put it on a waffle if it’s sweet. Try caramel macchiato waffles if you want something a bit more involved: just mix in some strong espresso (or excellent quality instant coffee powder) and a pinch of cocoa powder to your waffle batter, then top the cooked waffles with whipped cream and caramel sauce!
WAFFLES WITH SALT AND PEPPER – Waffle Love
Waffles aren’t only for breakfast anymore! Chicken and waffles are popular savoury pairing, but have you tried chilli and waffles? Cook the batter in your waffle iron with your favourite cornbread mix, then top with chilli, sour cream, shredded cheese, onions, or any other chilli toppings (Waffle Love). When the weather cools down, this makes a great and hearty dinner, but it’s just as amazing in the summer—and you won’t have to worry about turning on the oven and heating up your house because everything is done on the waffle iron!
Feeling a little posh?- Waffle Love
These are unique waffles designed to commemorate significant life events such as birthdays, anniversaries, or simply a leisurely Saturday morning. Waffles are excellent at any time of day, and the only thing better than waffles are fancy waffles. By adding anything to the batter or utilising creative toppings, you can dress up any waffle.
If you want a confetti cake waffle, we propose cake sprinkles, fresh berries if you want a pop of colour without the artificial hues, or chocolate chips if you want to have chocolate for breakfast (because who doesn’t?!). If you want to add more taste and protein to your waffles, try tossing in some peanut butter and topping them with grape jam for a waffle PB and J. Make a crazy face with toppings, create a fun design, or spell out a unique message. A less typical syrup option, such as jam, caramel, or chocolate sauce, is another fantastic way to improve your waffle. Mix and match until you discover the perfect waffle—and then mix and match some more because you never know what you’ll come up with (Waffle Love).
Waffles on the Side
Waffles are typically thought of as the main course, but even when served on the side, their distinct texture and flavour steal the show! You still don’t believe us (Waffle Love)? Try your hand at something new and see what you can come up with! If your waffle routine is getting old and you’re looking for a fresh recipe, try mixing waffles into other foods! These are just a handful of our favourite ways to serve waffles on the side, since why limit yourself to just one waffle every day?!
BOWLS + WAFFLE CONES
A conventional waffle cone is available at your local ice cream shop, but it is hard, crunchy, and frequently stale. Make your own with a fresh fluffy waffle and ice cream!
Imagine a luscious caramel coating sandwiched between two golden waffles… sounds incredible, right? The Dutch devised this delightful nibble (Waffle Love), which is traditionally dipped into their morning coffee. Make a gourmet waffle out of this side by mixing coffee into the waffle batter and spreading caramel on top!
BURRITO WITH WAFFLE
Burritos for breakfast are ideal for hectic mornings. Use a waffle instead of a tortilla to customise a normal breakfast burrito. It’s all of your favourite breakfast foods wrapped up in one easy-to-carry wrap! Make it sweet with fresh fruit and whipped cream, savoury with eggs and vegetables, or combine the two with bacon and maple syrup.
That’s how we like waffles—basically, we’re saying that we’ll eat any waffle, any waffle, and we simply like waffles!
