Homemade Waffles

I usually make homemade waffles almost every week especially during the weekends. They are the kind of comforting dish that everybody love and never get enough with.

This is my favorite homemade waffles recipe so far. The batter is easy to work with and the waffles come out light, crispy and fluffy.

These homemade waffles are best served right away, while they are still a bit crispy on the outside, with  a piece of butter and maple syrup or honey. You can always come out with various toppings like softened cream cheese or whipped cream, fresh fruits or jams on top.  In any way you choose to serve them they are simply amazing and they are definitely a perfect choice for a quick breakfast or even as dessert.

    Oh man, it’s been too long since I’ve had homemade waffles. I remember how much I loved it as a child – we used a French recipe (I have sort of a second mom that’s from France) and ate them with fresh berries… so wonderful! Thank you for reminding me of these wonderful occasions 🙂

  2. Kaitlin Author says:

    These look amazing! Whenever I try to make pancakes they turn out very thin and flat. These are gorgeous!

    What are those orange berries? I imagine some sort of relative to the kumquat?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      The orange berries are Sea Buckthorn Berries,they are very healthy.They have a high amount of vitamin C and E content. Yes they look similar to kumquats and they have a sour taste.

  4. Those pictures are beautiful! I only wish I had a waffle maker…

    I am guilty. I admit. Most of the time it is store-bought-straight – from – the-box-waffle-mix I serve for my kids for breakfast. I wanted to make homemade version but sometimes there are just lots of alibis 🙁
    Anyway, my kids still love them…But your homemade waffle recipe is a few steps easier than my version so i think I am gonna try this out. Happy Breakfast everyone! Thanks for sharing!

    Was feeling kind of gloomy after recently losing my father. About 30 years ago he rewired an old waffle iron for me. Just made your recipe and my family absolutely loved it! Nothing like comfort food. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      I am really sorry for your loss, I know how you feel, we've been in a similar situation about 3 years ago. I am glad I could help you with my recipe so you could  use your father's waffle iron.

    Hey Ella,

    Greetings from Moscow, Russia! Just wanted to say how much of a fan of yours I am, and these waffles are my absolute favorite. It’s the only recipe without tons of butter and doesn’t make me that guilty. Also it’s my favorite comfort food, so when smth happens, you and a pint of icecream are my best helpers 🙂 Thank you, you’re amazing.
