best waffle recipe

I got the BEST Waffle Recipe from my friend Stephanie. We do a weekly dinner exchange and one day she brought these amazing waffles to us. She calls them Maryland Cream Waffles. I call them the best waffles I have ever tasted! If you do not have cream on hand to make these waffles you can just add butter to the batter and use milk to replace the cream. Both options turn out really good.

I have told you before when I shared my pumpkin pancake recipe that I do not like pancakes from a mix, and that homemade pancakes are the best!  Well I believe the same is true for waffles! So if you have been having boring waffles from a mix you have really got to give this waffle recipe a try because it is the best! You could make these waffles into pumpkin waffles by adding the pumpkin and spices from my pumpkin pancake recipe. If you make the pumpkin waffles I highly recommend the caramel syrup to go with them.

Be sure to check out all of our homemade syrup recipes. I have always believed that homemade syrup is much better than the syrup you buy at the store. Go ahead! Try one out for yourself. You are going to love homemade syrup!

I have seen these Tovolo egg separators at some of the fancy kitchen stores I have been to. I think they look really cool, but they seem a little pricey. I thought they may make a nice gift though.  Just now, I spotted this other egg separator on amazon and it is super cheap! I wondered it anyone has tried it? It the super low price I just ordered one to give it a try. I get free shipping with prime!

  • thanks for sharing!

  • My family loves waffles, but I have found that most homemade recipes (ie not from a mix) don’t get crisp, even if I cook them on higher heat for more time. Do these crisp up, or do they stay soft, because looking at the photos, I now want waffles for dinner!

    • I just made these last night (divine!!)… and they were nice and crispy when I pulled them off the iron. They were so yummy, my kids wanted them for bfast today!

    • They get crisp. In fact I made one a little too crisp for the hubs the other day and he told me he would not eat it. Finally he broke down and gave it a try. After that her wished I would have made him two!
