This waffle recipe is like a family secret. It’s been passed down through generations – from Js’ parents to J, and now we’ll pass it down again. There’s a reason why we don’t ever make any other waffle recipe – these waffles are the fluffiest, lightest, most delicious breakfast waffle ever.
Want to know the secret? (Okay, the recipe isn’t an actual family secret.) It’s whipped egg whites. Folding whipped egg whites into your waffle batter creates the absolute fluffiest waffles! And you know what’s great about light and fluffy waffles? You can usually eat an extra waffle before you’re full 😉
Today I topped my waffles with the Homemade Spiced Apple Butter I made the other day. Yowsa. Waffles and apple butter go together like green eggs and ham. (Have you ever wondered exactly what green eggs are?! Anyway.) This recipe creates waffles that are light on the inside, slightly crispy on the outside, and smothered with cinnamony Apple Butter. There’s no real need for maple syrup, but I doused mine with some anyway. Because dessert for breakfast = winning.
Give these fluffiest waffles a whirl. I bet they’ll become your family’s favourite too!
