Sweet Heart Waffles

Sweet Heart Waffles
On Saturday morning, Smith and Andrew had to be somewhere pretty early, so it was just me and the girls for breakfast.  We decided to make waffles (a popular choice at our house on Saturday mornings!), and then Kensington asked if we could cut them into hearts (thank you heart shaped cookie cutter).  From there, we topped them with raspberry jam and Nutella because #yum and then named them “sweet heart waffles”.  Ah.  Being a girl mom is so fun.  Ha!  Even waffle making can get girly 🙂 .  Maybe you can make yourself some sweet heart waffles this weekend too.
This recipe will yield enough batter for four big Belgian waffles or 8 smaller waffles.
Shopping List
2 cups All Purpose Flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
2 tablespoon sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Maple syrup for drizzling or raspberry jam, Nutella and a bit of powdered sugar
Preheat your waffle iron.  Lightly spray with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar with a whisk.  In a second large mixing bowl, combine the milk, egg and vanilla.
Slowly whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.  Combine but do not over mix.
Ladle batter into hot waffle iron and bake to your liking.
When you’re done, remove from waffle iron and cut into hearts if you like (it’s super easy with a cookie cutter!).  Top and enjoy!

    Well, I must be lazy because I’ve only ever made waffles from a store-bought mix, but that looks easy enough and it’s stuff I keep on hand. Will have to try it….my girls would love sweet heart waffles!

    I received a heart-shaped waffle maker as a wedding gift 27 years ago. It was probably one of my very favorite gifts and we still use it. <3

    Do your waffles get crispy like store bought frozen waffles? I love making them from scratch but they don’t seem to get very crispy, so my kids always want the frozen ones. I’m wondering what the magic trick is for crispier waffles!

      Less batter! If you put less batter in there and turn your setting higher, they get crispier.

    OH YUM! I’m ready to have breakfast again after looking at this!

    So cute! Have you put a cinnamon roll on your waffle iron? Add the icing when it’s done. Adorable and fast breakfast we made today.

    I’m wondering if you’re missing the “butter”? This batter was so terribly dense and thick.

    • Mix and Match Mama February 11, 2018 at 5:25 am

      Nope! It’s the same old waffle batter we always use. We have two irons (Belgium and a smaller, more basic one) and use it for both.

      Mine was really thick too. I added a little extra milk. They turned out dense but good. 😊
