At our house making Belgian Waffles are like cereal; a quick meal that everyone loves. Everyone in my family has a favorite Belgian waffle, and favorite toppings (chocolate syrup, whipped cream, sprinkles, and fruit syrups), but this time I tried a few new ones.
My parents gave us a Kenmore Elite Belgian Waffle Maker for Christmas, and we have been using it weekly! It only take 2 1/2 minutes to make the perfect Belgian waffle, and my kids are full for hours. What more could you ask for?
To keep things quick and simple I usually just buy Krusteaz Belgian Waffle Mix, and throw in some add-ins that my kids love.
This weekend we made Cocoa Waffles & Walnut Chip Waffles:
For the Cocoa Belgian Waffles:
- Add 2 Tablespoons for unsweetened cocoa powder to your mix (4-5 waffles)
For Walnut Chip Belgian Waffles:
- Add 1/2 cup of walnuts & 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (4-5 waffles)
For Pecan Craisin Belgian Waffles:
- Add 1/2 cup of pecans & 1/2 cup of craisins
- For Vanilla Orange Belgian Waffles: (we're trying this one next weekend!)
- 1 tablespoon orange zest, 1 teaspoon vanilla
I have also been informed that you can make pizza in a Belgian waffle iron! One of my readers saw it on an episode of Rachel Ray! I plan to try this recipe as well. Do you have a favorite Belgian waffle iron recipe? If so what is it? I would love to try it out on my family! Apparently (from what I've seen on Google, there is no end to what you can make using a waffle iron). I have seen waffle iron cookie recipes, pizza recipes, and even calzones! I may dedicate an entire month to waffle iron recipes and declare it national waffle iron month!
