You know that I bought the waffle maker so that to be able to make my son’s most favourite breakfast, but gluten free. He just loves waffles. Unfortunately, he has very specific demands how the waffles should look like, be it gluten free or not. That is why I am happy to say that the waffle maker is just priceless, it helps me create waffles in the right shape and my kid usually doesn’t know they are home-made, not store-bought.
Today I am offering you to try another recipe that you can easily use with your waffle maker – Belgium waffles.
Belgium waffles, according to my experience, are sweet and usually softer in texture than the other waffles. But even my fussy eater didn’t have any problems eating them, which makes them a definite hit in our household.
I served this breakfast with chocolate spread and strawberries and cream. You can use other toppings that you like with your waffles – jams, honey, maple syrup, fruit, peanut butter, etc.
This breakfast didn’t need a lot of time to prepare, so you can easily surprise your loved ones with a delicious meal in the morning this weekend. I, personally, used my waffle maker to make the waffles, click here to see it. And I’ve used gluten free self-raising flour, but you can use an all purpose flour as well, whatever you have at home.
Give them a try!
