How Good Are The Waffles? So. Good.

How good are these waffles? So. Good.

I ain’t even kidding.

Most any waffles are good. Most any waffles are great. But all waffles are not created equal.

How good are the waffles I’m about to go on and on about?

So. Good.

The best.

In the world.

In a nutshell: this is the best homemade Belgian waffle recipe I’ve ever made.

Not even a drop of hyperbole.

How Good Are The Waffles? So. Good.

Oh! Before we go any further, let me clarify: you can use this waffle recipe in any waffle maker. I just happen to have a Belgian waffle maker, so of course that’s what I’m using, but maybe you don’t. It’s okay; use what you gots!

What follows is an actual conversation that was had the last time I visited the kiddos and made Sweet E waffles (from a mix – not homemade).

Girl: Whose waffles are better? Choochie’s or Daddy’s?

Sweet E contemplating….


Girl: Are you kidding?! Choochie’s are SO MUCH BETTER!

Me to Girl: Oh, hai – these aren’t homemade; they’re from a mix.

And that’s what happens when you don’t go homemade.

Go homemade or GO HOME!

Waffles originating from anywhere are okay with me – but Girl had a point: homemade is better….ever’….stinkin’…time.

BONUS TIP: Make this glaze to top yer waffles. You will never ever regret it.

The waffles from the recipe below are my favs (and Boy’s and Girl’s and Garry’s and Sweet E’s – I think!) – they are the best waffles in the world to us!

I haven’t shared my beloved waffle recipe in some time – and I know you’ve been searching for the best waffle recipe in the land.

In. The. Land.

OMT! making the boldest of proclamations!

Seriously, look no further.

So, how good are they?

So. Good.

The day I made these waffles, they became an instant family favorite – I had found waffle nirvana.

While pancakes are tasty and easy, some days, some occasions, call for waffles.

Man, I love waffles, don’t you?

Who doesn’t?!

Not rhetorical. Come on, answer the question.


For those of you who answered in the negative, my theory is this: If you don’t love waffles, then you simply haven’t had my waffles.

How Good Are The Waffles? So. Good.

Gaze upon their waffley goodness.

They are light enough to make you roll your eyes in ecstasy (done it).

Firm enough to hold up to rivers of maple syrup and mounds of butter (done it).

And delicious enough that they’ll show up in your dreams (over and over again).

Pretty bold, right?

Sweet babies, you gotta know by now that OMT! ain’t messin’ around when she says something she makes is deeeee-lish.

This particular recipe is a little more complex than most, but I’m telling you that these waffles are worth the effort to make.

These are the best Belgian waffles; they are light, yet filling, and sure to put a smile on your waffle-lover’s face.

Just talking about them is making me waffle-hungry!

I’ll ask ya again: Who doesn’t love waffles?!


How Good Are The Waffles? So. Good.

Holy moly, YAAAAAAS!

Typically, if I’m going to the trouble of making these delicious squares o’love, I double the waffle goodness.

1: We eat what we want, then put the rest in the fridge or freezer.

2: They’re a great grab-n-go waffle for the kids before school, as they can be eaten cold or warmed up. Sweet E loves this tip!

3: They’re an easy afternoon snack smeared with peanut butter and raisins. Or Nutella and chocolate chips!

They’re a fun indulgent supper when you’ve had a hard day. Add eggs and breakfast sausage, or bacon (mmmm, bacon), and you’ll have a new favorite supper.

Since I dislike buying frozen waffles (they remind me of hockey pucks), making this recipe serves two purposes:

#1: The taste is far superior to frozen.

#2: They cannot be used as a Frisbee by your creative children.


We’ve topped these spectacular waffles with cut-up fruit, peach preserves, apple butter, eggs and bacon, pear butter, Maple Syrup, pineapple honey glaze, peanut butter and whipped cream.

Soon, I’m trying a cookie butter version!

The combinations are endless – use your imagination for what appeals to your taste buds.


~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links at no cost to you. ~

Just in case you’re interested, I’m including a link below (and in recipe card) to the waffle maker I use.

SPOILER ALERT: I adore this Belgian waffle maker.

I’ve had it for years and love it.

It’s a bit more expensive than the cheapie brands, but truly worth the money.

The day it dies, I’m gonna be the saddest Choochie in the land. I may even hold a wake in its honor. Nothing weird about that, right?


Most of the year it resides in a cabinet, collecting dust, but when the time comes to make waffles, this waffle maker is a thang of beauty – it shines!

Workhorse, it is. And easy peasy to clean.

Cause let’s be honest: when you’re making waffles it usually means you have a house full o’people, and no one is gonna want to spend their time cleaning waffle maker grooves, right?


In all the years I’ve used this maker,  don’t think it’s ever took more than a simple wiping down to clean it.

Lastly, I’m not a fan of non-stick cookware, but this waffle maker is my exception (mostly because of eliminating time-consuming cleaning the grooves issue).

Not only do the waffles come out easily, there is rarely a need to add oil or butter to the maker to ensue waffles come out with ease.

Um, can you tell, I truly love my waffle maker?

There you have it: a recipe for the best waffles in the world and a waffle maker to make them in.

You just gotta do is find the soon-to-be happy eaters.

Please come back and let me know how much you and your family, friends, co-workers, randos loved the waffles.

I can’t wait to read your comments of joy!

Happy Waffle Makin’, my babies!

    We just love making homemade waffles. We tend to make a huge double batch when we cook them up so we can enjoy some for that morning and freeze a few to use throughout the week… though now that the boys are teenaged the recipe doesn’t seem to stretch as far… 🙂 We’ll have to try this recipe and compare it out our favorite one.
