It can be a real effort to get a healthy breakfast on your table which is also filling and hearty. That’s where pure Belgian waffles come in to save the day! This deceptively simple treat is made by cooking a waffle batter between two plates to give it a distinctive shape and texture.


According to Allrecipes, the food-focused social networking service, there are over a million searches for waffles a year and ranks in the top 50 items searched. It’s not surprising waffles are so popular—that’s why we’re proud to make elechomes waffle makers which are the perfect way to satisfy your waffle cravings, whether they be savory or sweet. 


Do you only picture breakfast when you think of waffles? If so, you should think again! Waffles can actually be used for super-tasty savory dinner meals on weeknights, too!


According to food researchers, as many as 35% of people eat homemade waffles regularly. Here’s the breakdown of what people think of waffles.   


Favorite Waffles to Try


There’s a saying that goes “You can’t be sad if you’re eating waffles!” Ok, well that might not be true for the 1.25% percent of people that describe their perception of waffles as “very negative” (what did waffles ever do to you?!) but for the rest of us, there are some different waffle recipes out there worth trying that can give us a whole new appreciation for this unique form of food! Below are instructions on making different waffle types:


  • Step 1

Dissolve yeast in a bowl, add water. Take a bigger bowl and add flour, sugar, and baking powder. Stir in the dry ingredients until combined. Whisk in the yeast mixture, milk, butter, egg yolk, vanilla until smooth.


  • Step 2

In a medium bowl beat eggs until it is able to stand up firmly. Add into the batter and let it sit for 20 minutes.

 

  • Step 3

Heat and grease the waffle maker. Pour the batter and cook until waffles are golden. Flip the waffle iron back over and enjoy it with maple syrup, Belgian Chocolate-Fudge Sauce, or toppings of your choice. 


Some of my absolute favorite waffle styles are:


1. Bananas Foster Belgian Waffles
 These are one of the most-searched-for, delicious waffles with banana cooked directly into the waffle. Keep your maple syrup, fruits, and ice-cream in the fridge the day before so they’re fresh.

 

2. Crisp and Airy Gluten-Free Waffles 
Are you allergic to gluten and can’t normally eat waffles? Well now you can! Gluten-free waffles can sometimes be dense but folding egg white into the batter gives it a nice lift in texture.


3. Kimchi-Cheddar Waffles
It sounds crazy but you can turn basic waffle into a savory meal by just adding kimchi and gooey cheddar cheese.

 

4. Waffled Brownie Sundae 
If you love brownies but want it a different way, try cooking it in a waffle iron, serve it with ice-cream and enjoy your new favorite decadent dessert!


5. Multigrain Waffles

If you’re the type of person that loves to indulge in waffles but would prefer a slightly healthier iteration on the recipe, we’ve got just the thing for you! This recipe uses 3 different grains: whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, and old-fashioned rolled oats. Top it with fruits and yogurt for an extra tasty treat.
