Why are waffles so much better than pancakes? Is it the crispy exterior matched with the fluffy interior? Is it the perfectly proportioned pockets that scoop up syrup and toppings?

  1. These recipes look fabulous Liz! Our nice waffle maker broke a few years ago and we had to pitch it. But I saw a great sale on All Clad ones at Williams Sonoma last week and so I got one for the family for Christmas. It should arrive any day now, I will definitely be back here to try out some of these great waffle recipes on our new waffle iron!

  2. I like waffles because I do like the crispy exterior. Plus they are easier to clean up after and maintain. Way back when, I used to post a waffle recipe weekly. Maybe I’ll get back into that.

  3. Riley got me a waffle make for Christmas last year and we’ve used it three times. I’m so ashamed because waffles are so good! I need to get in the habit of making a bunch at once and freezing them. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Sweet or savory waffles – I don’t care so long as I get a waffle! I was actually just talking with someone today about my love of waffles and how I NEED them at least once a week.

  5. Oh yum! These all look delicious!

  6. YUM! I think that waffles are more delicious than pancakes because they have the little divets which perfectly house the butter and syrup! 😀 I love a classic Belgian waffle with fruit and maple syrup!

  7. Wow. Those all look spectacular!

  8. I am so with you on the waffles over pancakes debate. I’ll admit that I’m more interested in sweet than savory waffles, but honestly I’ll take them any way I can get them. When we make them (too infrequently), I try to make a few extras and freeze them. I pop them in the toaster on weekdays – so much better than plain toast:)
