Perfectly golden and crisp on the outside, with a light and fluffy interior. Top with a pat of butter and warm maple syrup, and dig into these mouthwatering breakfast treats. Quick and Easy Waffles are great to throw together for a speedy and decadent weekend breakfast, and are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve been staying warm this week! It was so cold in the beginning of the week, that the boys and I decided to just hang around the house. Sometimes those are the best days. 🙂 We had fun playing, doing projects together, and of course, creating many new things in the kitchen. Thankfully, the temperature warmed up a bit this weekend, and we were able to bundle up and head outside. The boys loved playing in the snow! We even built a tiny snowman and had some sled races. It was great to have Grandpa join us in our snowy backyard fun! Here are a few pictures from this week:
With all of the wintery weather outside, I love heating up our house with a nice warm breakfast. These Quick and Easy Waffles are the perfect morning treat. They only require a few basic ingredients, that I’m guessing you already have in your kitchen. These waffles are great to make with your kids, or can easily be whipped up before the little ones, or your husband, even get out of bed. There is just something so wonderful about coming down to the aromas of rich, buttery, freshly baked waffles.
Another thing I love about enjoying these waffles on the weekend, is that they are FANTASTIC when reheated. Plus, they also freeze well, too! Just pop a few in the toaster, slather on the butter and syrup, and you can dig into that weekend goodness all week long.
For a little variation, try topping these waffles with fresh fruit, such as strawberries, blueberries or bananas. If you’re craving something a bit more decadent, add chocolate chips and whipped cream. However you dress them up, one thing is for sure, these Quick and Easy Waffles will be a family favorite in no time!
Slightly crisp and fluffy waffles that come together in a flash.
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 large eggs
- 3 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), melted and cooled slightly
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, slightly beat eggs, then whisk in the milk and vanilla.
- Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, add the wet ingredients, and gently whisk together. Don't over mix. Then carefully fold in the butter with a rubber spatula until just combined, batter should be slightly lumpy.
- Using a preheated waffle iron that is lightly greased with cooking spray, pour batter onto iron, spread slightly if needed, and gently close lid. (Use about 1/4 cup batter for an iron that makes smaller waffles, or about 1 cup batter for an iron that makes larger waffles). Bake according to waffle maker directions. When waffles are done, carefully remove from griddle with a fork. Repeat with remaining batter and serve warm with syrup.
To keep waffles warm while cooking, place waffles on a wire rack on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.
