You know what today is? It’s the first day of the WEEKEND! Because I count Friday as the weekend. Mentally, it’s just a survival mechanism.

Anyway. The weekend means it’s time for waffles.

And not just any waffles. My very favorite, reader tested and approved, much beloved homemade Belgian waffles completely from scratch!

Part of the reason I love this recipe so much is because it’s SO easy to make. Lots of Belgian waffle recipes make you whip egg whites. Or worse– make you wait for the batter to rise! ????

Actually, yeast waffles are on my to-do list. So don’t be too surprised when you see them here at some point. But in general, I like a waffle recipe that’s a simple mix-and-pour. And when said recipe also tastes just like a recipe that calls for whipping egg whites? Super.

My mom always made waffles for Sunday night dinner when I was growing up. But not just waffles. Waffles done up right. Whipped cream, real maple syrup, chocolate chips, strawberry sauce, pecans… the works.
