Vanilla Waffles

Vanilla Waffle

Although I bake most goods from scratch, I tend to err on the boxed side of things with waffles and pancakes. This past weekend I broke the mold and tried a from scratch waffle recipe I found on All Recipes. I kept the recipe the same except for adding one extra tablespoon of sugar and increasing the vanilla to one tablespoon. (You can never have too much vanilla)!
The batter may have been thin, but the waffles cooked up wonderfully fluffy with a sweet vanilla aroma. My husband smothered his with butter and pure maple syrup while my daughter ate hers plain. I, on the other hand, prefer my waffles drenched with homemade blueberry topping and whipped cream when I have it. Which begs the question, how do you like to eat your waffles?

The waffle batter will be quite thin yet bake up nice and fluffy.
