Waffles are Delicious. Here are Recipes to Suit Everyone’s Tastes.
We love waffles and there’s a chance you do, too. Okay, now that that’s out of the way – let’s cut to the chase and dive into the photos and how to make these delicious heavenly grid beings.
Waffles can be enjoyed on Sunday or just in the morning if you’ve got the time. They are filling, can be topped with basically anything, and can be made to all diet types (vegan, whole wheat, etc). We’ve included seven recipes to different waffle styles below with photos that are good enough to make you crave brunch as you read.
Without further ado, let’s dive into 7 waffle recipes and all the right equipment that you’ll need to make them!
Classic Belgian Waffles
The classic. What makes a Belgian waffle a “Belgian Waffle”? That’s a great question – we asked ourselves the same thing. Belgian waffles are traditionally thicker and fluffier than other waffles, and the batter is very yeasted (meaning it has more yeast than usual).
It’s also important to make Belgian waffles in a Belgian Waffle maker. Without one, you won’t get the right technique and shape. To start making Belgian Waffles for yourself, here’s a highly-rated classic Belgian waffle recipe.
Since most people don’t have a waffle maker, maybe it’s time you invested in one. Used frequently on weekends (or weekdays if you have the time) a waffle maker is a good investment that can last a while if properly maintained after each usage. Some classic Belgian waffle makers are certainly better than others so be sure to read any reviews before you buy!
Whole Wheat Waffles
Whole wheat waffles are easy to make and not that different from classic waffles. The batter will usually contain a few differences to normal batter with the inclusions of whole wheat flour, flax seed meal, and/or wheat germ. Pretty simple – and these waffles can be more filling over the course of a morning! Here’s a classic recipe for whole wheat waffles for you to try out!
Vanilla and Lemon Zest Waffles
The Vanilla and Lemon Zest recipe is a slight twist on the classic recipe. Usually, it’s the toppings that make the waffles different but this recipe has the difference baked right into the waffle itself. You can check out the recipe here.
Heart shaped waffles aren’t too hard to make – if you have the right equipment. Here’s where you can order that elusive heart-shaped waffle iron to impress your guests (or your kids) at the next brunch. You can also gain enjoyment from the fact that you have adorable heart-shaped waffles all to yourself whenever you want. Both work!
- Nonstick waffle maker bakes 5 heart-shaped waffles at a time
- Quad baking system for custom texture and color; fast temperature recovery
- Choose deep-bake mode or "crisp exterior/moist interior" setting
- Unique "floating" top plate for uniform thickness; cord storage; recipes included
Okay, we lost it with these waffles. The syrup dripping down the side is beautiful and the taste is like a Sunday morning waffle explosion in your mouth. Who wouldn’t want these exact waffles?
For the ultimate Buttermilk Waffle recipe, you can find it here. This version comes out crispy on the outside but tender on the inside – and can even be reheated in the toaster if you make extras to freeze for a workday morning.
Crispy Yeast Waffles
These crispy yeast waffles are great if you’re looking for a little more crunch to your waffle texture. No soggy waffle here! The recipe we feature does call for the batter to be prepared the night before and left at room temperature, but they are worth the effort for that perfect Sunday brunch. To make your very own yeasty waffles, here’s the awesome recipe.
Vegan waffles are another easy to make twist on the classic recipe. Substituting the eggs and milk can be done with things like unsweetened applesauce and unsweetened almond milk. Recipes can go one step further to make gluten-free waffles by incorporating gluten-free flour. All in all, there are lots of variations for all diet types and intolerances. Here’s the recipe for vegan waffles.
Perhaps you’ve purchased a Belgian Waffle Maker? You’re going to want the top-rated tongs for grabbing those hot bad boys. Waffles, we mean.
- With the function of a turner and a fork, this is an excellent tool for lifting waffles from a hot waffle iron. Silicone prongs fit neatly into pockets to secure waffles without tearing.
- Eliminate the risk of using metal forks with electric waffle makers. Won't scratch glass, nonstick, ceramic or metal surfaces.
This is a photograph of waffles with blueberries on top. It looks delicious. The following recipe is one that calls for the blueberries to be inside the waffles and in a sauce on top of the waffles. Do we have your attention yet? Good – because here’s the recipe for the ultimate blueberry waffles.
Blueberries are just one addition to the mix – you can add chocolate chips, banana, raspberries, etc. for a variety of different taste and textures in your waffles. Feel free to experiment and get back to us!
