Don’t you just love spoiling yourself or some else with a plate of The Best Waffles!! Big, crispy and delicious waffles. Filling the little nooks with butter and dousing the pile with pure maple syrup. The first known waffle recipe dates back to the late 14th century, really?? Who knew they were around that long.
There are loads of variations of waffles but most of us think of the Belgian waffle, which has become Americanized. There are Brussels Waffles, Scandinavian, Hong Kong and Flemish. There are waffles fried chicken with waffles, hotdog waffles or waffles on a stick. Besides the Scandinavian waffles my favorite are these. Light as air and crispy!!
Love how the little pockets fill up with butter and syrup!!
