The BEST Waffle recipe, complete with fresh strawberries and a homemade cream sauce. Other waffles need not apply!
I’m probably lying in bed, lookin like a lobster in pajamas, right now.
Don’t picture that.
I told you about how we were going to Miami when we talked about these Raspberry Coconut Tarts last week, and we just got back last night.
I burn easily….which is why I probably look like a lobster.
I didn’t want to write you guys something in the middle of a “BED NOW” kind of mood, and risk it making even less sense than normal. So, you’re totally reading Taylor from the past!
I don’t even know. Let’s move on.
I’m sure that we had the most amazing time in all the evers in Miami, at the Blog Her Food Conference, and I’ll tell you guys all about it sometime soon. But. These waffles. They need a post all on their own.
I was a leeeetle bit worried to call them THE BEST WAFFLES EVER. But, you know what? They are.
So, I did.
Also, did you know that it’s National Strawberries and Cream Day! So, it’s the perfect day ever to share these with you, and you should eat them to because parties and celebrations are fun.
Anway. These waffles are really near and dear to me because they are a VERY old family recipe that I grew up eating for special occasions. We never had them for breakfast because, unlike the single serve protein paleo waffles, they are pretty time consuming (sorry, but it’s SO worth it!) so we always made special dinners out of them, just a couple times a year.
People came from all over to eat these waffles guys. And by “all over” I mean, we had tenants living in a basement suite that always came up for waffles dinners. Whatever, people CAME.
The first time MR. FFF had them…he ate 13. 13 FULL WAFFLES, 13 waffles that are 4 squares each. 13×4 waffles. He almost died. He didn’t even care. I was kind of disgusted. And kind of proud.
Sidenote: The elephant in the room needs to be discussed. Yes, there is ¾ cup of oil in here. Yes, there actually is more in the true recipe, I cut it down a bit. No, you can’t cut it back anymore. Yes, it’s so worth it. AND you can use whole wheat pastry flour, ya know, to balance it out. Capeesh?
I seriously could talk about this sauce forever. It’s SO thick and CREAMY AND SWEET…and can be a little scary to make at first, because it can’t get burned at all. But, once you get it, you’re going to want to put it on ALL THE THINGS. And, it freezes well…so you can.
This is getting long and I still have a funny story for you. So, as you may have seen on Instagram, I actually made these for the huberoni’s birthday breakfast. We went out for dinner that evening (yes, it was a food baby kind of day) and I wore one of those dresses that are higher in the front, and longer in the back. I think the kids are calling them “asymmetrical dresses.”
Well, all night, I kept feeling like I was showing my behind to the world, and kept pulling my dress down. But, it didn’t make sense because the back of the dress is supposed to touch the floor.
That is, if you’re wearing it the proper way.
That’s right, I wore the dress BACKWARDS all night, without noticing.
My life. UGH.
Ok. I’m sorry. This is way too long.
Make these waffles. It really IS the best waffle recipe. And it WILL change your life.
And, yes, you can hold me to that. That’s the confidence level I have in them.
