These waffles are one of the best weekend breakfasts that we make in our home. Especially at this time of the year when fresh strawberries are in season. We love to sprinkle chocolate chips and sliced strawberries over them. And of course, top the waffles off with some whipped cream!
Are you as excited about strawberry season as I am? About mid-winter I start thinking about going to buy or pick fresh strawberries. That is about when I run out of our homemade jam. I also love to make these Strawberry Rhubarb Bars when it is strawberry season. I just wish the season would last a bit longer…it is usually 2-3 weeks and then they are done. But, the good news is that raspberries and blueberries are ready usually right after the strawberries are done! What is your favorite berry? I have a hard time picking one. Just as I was going to say strawberries, I thought about how much I love raspberries too and blueberries are so good for us…that is a tough one!
So, back to breakfast…sorry I got thinking about strawberries there for a minute…these waffles are pretty easy to make. Of course, you will need a waffle iron. This Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker is the one we have and it works great! Before starting, I would suggest slicing up your berries so that they are ready to go once your waffles are cooked. The waffles cook pretty quickly so you will want those strawberries ready to sprinkle over your warm waffle. When you are ready to start making the waffle batter, turn on your waffle iron and let it heat up while you whip up the ingredients.
For each waffle, you will need about one cup of batter. We measure out a cup, but some usually stays in the measuring cup…that is fine. No need to scrape out the batter each time. Instead, you might have enough for an extra smaller one at the end. This recipe makes four waffles. Sometimes we make one and a half of the recipe so we can have a little more because they are so delicious!
My kids and I like to sprinkle chocolate chips and strawberries over our waffles and top it off with some whipped cream. My husband prefers to skip the chocolate chips and just sprinkle some strawberries and top with whipped cream. What do you like on your waffles? Syrup and powdered sugar are also great options for a these waffles! I actually think you could eat these plain and still love them. But of course, if you are a chocolate lover like me…you go for the chocolate chips and strawberries!
With it being strawberry season now, we love to have them over our waffles. Another great recipe with fresh strawberries is this Spinach Strawberry Salad that we made recently. It is so quick and easy to make. And the dressing that goes with it…yumm!
What is your favorite recipe to make with strawberries? There really are so many good ones out there. Enjoy your waffles and have a great day!
