WAFFLE TOPPING IDEAS
I prefer butter and syrup. However, this homemade raspberry sauce would be amazing . You can also top with whipped cream and fresh fruit. My kids prefer peanut butter with syrup.

WAFFLE RECIPE: FAQS
How do you reheat homemade waffles to make them crispy again?
After making the waffles let them completely cool. Tear your waffles into triangles if your waffle iron creates a natural division. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Pop into the toaster when ready to reheat. Enjoy with butter and syrup.

How do I store the leftover waffles?
Once cool, store leftover waffles in a airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. When ready to enjoy, pop into the toaster to crisp up. You can also freeze the leftover waffles and toast from freezer when ready to eat!

Can you use this recipe to make pancakes?
Waffle recipes tend to have more fat (hence the butter) than pancake recipes do. Try this recipe if you’re in the mood for pancakes.

What’s the difference between Belgian and regular waffles?
Belgian waffles tend to be thicker. You use a unique waffle maker to create them. The recipe also calls for a leavening agent (the baking powder in this recipe) which allows them to be nice and fluffy.
