Easy Homemade Waffles

JJ has been bugging me for waffles. At least five times a week he wants waffles, doesn’t care if it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, he is asking for waffles. So finally one Saturday morning I made him some waffles. I was hoping that would stop he begging me for waffles, but it didn’t. Oh well. I do love making these waffles on the weekend, so we can have some leftovers during the week. Sometimes I even make them and freeze them so I have them on hand. I wish I could eat the  frozen waffles, but they all have ingredients in them that can trigger ADHD. So we are better off with lots of homemade stuff at our house.

I usually set the milk and eggs out early when I know I am baking. That way the ingredients get to room temperature. I like the waffle batter to sit a little bit before cooking them. I find this helps the waffles to be a little bit fluffier when they cook. We use a good maple syrup for the topping, but you can definitely do some fruit too.

Tips & Recommendations

Make sure the milk and eggs are room temperature, that way the melted butter wont make scrambled eggs. Frozen waffles can be reheated in a toaster.
