Waffles are fluffy, filling and are safe to be consumed whilst running for the bus in the morning. They are simple, yet delightful, and if you had to choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life…well obviously it would be waffles.
It’s always nice when something so delicious requires very little effort. But results in maximum happiness and taste bud satisfaction. If you’re not keen on consuming several hundred calories in one sitting then you can always go for a healthier option by chucking some fruit in there. You can have them sweet AND savoury.
Waffles don’t have to be reserved just as a main attraction on your plate. They can also be stuck into amazing milkshakes too!
Traditionally, waffles are served with butter and maple syrup, or fruit and whipped cream. If it’s sweet, there’s no reason not to put it on a waffle. If you want to try something a little more involved, just add some strong espresso (or good quality instant coffee powder) and a pinch of cocoa powder to your waffle batter, then top the cooked waffles with whipped cream and caramel sauce!
Waffles aren’t just for breakfast! The classic savoury combination is chicken and waffles but have you tried chilli and waffles? Use your favourite cornbread mix and cook the batter in your waffle iron, then top with chilli, sour cream, shredded cheddar, onions, or any of your favourite chilli toppings. This makes a delicious and filling dinner when the weather turns cool, but it’s just as good in the summer—and you don’t have to worry about turning on the oven and heating your house up because it is all done on the waffle iron!
