My kids love waffles for breakfast and I love an easy waffle recipe. This waffle recipe fits the bill as it is quick, easy and makes great waffles. Make extra waffles and freeze for a quick breakfast later. Serve waffles with maple or homemade buttermilk syrup. If you have more time, try my overnight yeasted waffle recipe for some really out of this world waffles!
My kids are usually pancake eaters for breakfast, but recently they have been asking for waffles instead. My favorite waffle recipe, Overnight Yeasted Waffles, are not exactly the kind of waffles you can make on a whim. So I went searching for a simple and quick waffle recipe that didn’t require beating egg whites or letting yeast rise. And boy, did I find a winner!
These waffles are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. When it comes to waffles, it’s important to really whip your eggs up so I actually used a blender to get mine nice and frothy, but a tiny bit of elbow grease with a whisk would work, too.
The other thing that made these waffles superb was the flavor. I accidentally poured in more vanilla than intended. I’m guessing it was around 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla, but adjust to your taste.
Someday I’m going to adjust my red velvet pancake recipe in to red velvet waffles! Yum!
