    This recipe looks fantastic! I used to make Belgium Waffles regularly for guests but made them from a yeast recipe. One of the first times I made them, I got busy with other things as when I came back to check the dough, it has risen so much that it was practically taking over the entire counter! I got busy… I can’t even remember how many waffles I made that day, but I can tell you that the baked uneaten ones went into the freezer:) It was a scene right out of I Love Lucy…I can tell you that!

    • LOL, I could see that Jacquie. What I wouldn’t give to have live picture of that. The best part is you got a ton of waffles from it. 🙂

  • Hi Susan. Your post really got my mouth watering, as when we are at home, I make homemade waffles nearly every week. We’re living away for the month, so I am without my trusty waffle maker and really miss it! I guess we’ll have to go out for Belgian waffles. Cheers!

    • That is cool. I hope you found some good ones. There is nothing quite like homemade Belgian waffles is there Doreen. 🙂

      • Hi Susan. Believe it or not, Eggo now has cinnamon & brown sugar Belgian waffles that are pretty darn good in a pinch! Not as good as homemade, but not too bad at all with whipped cream and free strawberries!

        • That may be worth looking for. Better yet I could make my own cinnamon and brown sugar version… yum. 🙂

  • Gosh I have to stop reading your blog right before lunch. I love Belgium waffles. My grandmother used to make them every Sunday night for dinner, so they’re one of my all time comfort foods. My problem is it takes me about 3 bad waffles before I get a good one. How do you stop the oil or butter from browning when the waffle maker has been on for awhile?

    • Waffles were a rare and cherished event in our home when I was a kid Pamela. The old waffle maker was the reason. Now I can make them anytime I like.

      I find that we don’t need to use oil or butter on the waffle maker because of the oil in the batter, thus no burning. 🙂

    What a great idea to use melted preserves as syrup! We haven’t had waffles for probably a month. Guess what’s for breakfast tomorrow!

    • It is the best thing ever on waffles and pancakes Beth. The best part is people think you’ve slaved over the stove to make the berry syrup/sauce… LOL.

      • Beth Niebuhr

        HaHa! That’s a good advantage!

  • I have a good waffle maker and will try this recipe. Thanks.

    • Cool Donna, Let me know what you think when you give it a try. 🙂

  • I love waffles. Problem is that I don’t have a waffle maker. This does look yummy though.

    • Oh then you must consider getting one. It really makes all the difference and it so easy to use too Glynis. 🙂

      • Next gift giving day for me is Mom’s day. I know what I’m going to hint for.

        • Great idea. I hope you get your Mother’s day wish. 🙂

  • hi susan; glad to hear you got what you wanted for christmas a waffle maker and yummy waffles. sounds like santa must like waffles too. i can’t remember the last time we had waffles or even french toast. seth is so uncultured. lol thanks for sharing, max

    • ‘Santa’ and I have really enjoyed our new waffle maker. It’s safe to say our future quests will be served waffles on occasion will they’re visiting. 🙂

    I have a waffle maker like that. I love it. Fresh waffles are SO good. Too bad my youngest rather have a boxed eggo. Silly kid.

    • Don’t you love that waffle maker Krystal? Let’s hope your youngest figures it out because there truly is no comparison… LOL.

  • I do love a Belgian waffle and some bacon on the side every now again for breakfast or even dinner. My waffle maker is a sad little number though and this post give me waffle iron maker envy 😉

    • Aw, I had the same envy until “Santa” gave this new waffle iron. You should seriously consider getting yourself a new one Jeri. 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

    They look and sound delicious! You will have to make them next time I see you.

  • Jon Jefferson

    I need to pick up one of these new fangled waffle makers. Mine is old and slow. We end up making them ahead and then popping them in the toaster when we want some waffles.

    • Oh thane you MUST get yourself a new one Jon. They aren’t that expensive and they make all the difference in the world when making Belgian waffles

  • Catarina Alexon

    Love Belgian waffles and have had them many times when I have been in the country. We make similar but thinner waffles in Sweden that are traditionally eaten with whipped cream and strawberry jam.

    • They are the best in Belgian I’ll give you that Catarina. But I have to say your thin ones served that way are pretty darn amazing too.

  • Rose M Griffith

    So in addition to the KitchenAid mixer I want…I’m going to add this waffle maker to the list. Looks great. Going to have to remodel the kitchen to hold these things…back to the blog: thank you for sharing both recipes–the homemade baking mix and the waffle one. I was never a huge waffle fan until I had one off a waffle truck in Brussels…changed everything!

    • I LOVE my Kitchen aide mixer and now this new waffle maker. They are the best things ever Rose. They just might be worth a kitchen remodel… LOL. .

  • Debra Yearwood

    Yum, that looks delicious, well worth the investment.

    • I love this Waffle Maker Debra. It makes perfect waffles every time. We have used it many times since. 🙂
