My kids have become accustomed to weekday breakfasts consisting of our normal go-tos of cereal, eggs, or oatmeal. This is mainly due to time constraints in the morning, especially during the school year.
But weekends are a different story. On weekends they love to request pancakes, French toast, or their new favorite breakfast dish, waffles.
This past Saturday morning came and my 6 year old nicely asked if I would make him waffles for breakfast. Of course I did. We recently got a a new waffle maker that makes four square waffles at once. The best part is that the waffle maker has drip trays on the side to prevent the batter overflowing and dripping all over the sides. This makes for a super easy clean up.
This is my go-to waffle recipe. It's super easy to make and if you substitute regular flour for whole wheat or gluten-free, it tastes just as good! The kids love helping make this waffle recipe, too.
I hope you enjoy making these waffles on the weekend (or any other day) with your family!
