Today is officially "Waffle Iron Day." But, who can talk about waffle irons without talking about waffles? I mean, that little crispness on the outside and the fluffy goodness on the inside, all topped with your favorite toppings of fruit, syrup, butter, ice cream and myriads of other topping ideas. And, the nice thing about waffles is the way they hold the syrup on every bite!
For Christmas, Maddy received this adorable Mickey Mouse Waffle Iron! The perfect gift for a Disney lover! Since we are planning a family reunion in Disneyland, she is planning to bake everyone Mickey waffles to keep that Disney theme going!
Of course, she has tried it out on her nieces and nephews already and made them this delicious vegan waffle recipe! These really are so good! And vegan! Who knew?
When my husband and I were first married, we received a stove top Belgium Waffle Iron (similar to this one) than we used for years. Finally one year, Lindsey bought me an electric one (similar here) that I have used ever since. I don't even know what I have done with my stove top one, which is kind of sad because it did make really thick and fluffy Belgium Waffles! But, my electric one does a great job as well (and is quicker and easier).
Of course, I love lots of fun toppings! Here is what I made to show you on this post, blueberries and whipped cream! Yum! All on top of a great and super simple waffle recipe.
Lindsey loves pumpkin pie spice everything, so her fave choice was a no brainer! And, Alicia reminds us that you don't always have to go super sweet with waffles, she loves chicken and waffles!
