Fluffy Belgian Waffles

We recently returned from our first 10-hour road trip to South Dakota. We were like mega tourists with our camera and backpacks. We got all adventurous in the Black Hills, meandering through Custer State Park and Mt. Rushmore. It was simply gorgeous.

There’s no eye candy like the great outdoors.  Difficult hikes up rocky terrains in the summer heat = totally worth it = breathtaking beauty ⇓

The Littles shocked me at how well they navigated the tricky terrain of the wilderness. They were rewarded with coming face to face with huge elk and other wildlife like they’ve never seen.

As if that weren’t fun enough, our family flew in from Cali to hang with us last week. The Littles embraced every minute of entertaining their little cousins here in our Twin Cities stomping grounds. We finally got to show off our beautiful summer in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Top with Berries, Maple syrup, or Powder Sugar

Just a few weeks ago, strawberries were aplenty and the farms were bursting with them. Hubby, the boys, and myself went berry crazy; we brought home a minivan full of lush, ripe, red, juicy berries.

After all, fresh strawberries are my favorite thing to toss over just about anything. From ice cream to pancakes to these fluffy Belgian waffles.

Or Serve Waffles Just as They are

Let’s just savor a moment of silence over these fluffy Belgian waffles.

Golden, slightly crispy edges, fluffy on the inside, and melt-in-your-mouth.

Simply divine fresh off the waffle iron. It’s perfection with a layer of freshly sliced strawberries on top and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Or pure maple syrup, if that’s your jam.

These Fluffy Belgian Waffles are made with a sweetened batter, so they’re tantalizing just as they are. Just serve ’em up with some berries and you’re good to go. One bite of these homemade waffles and you’ll totally leggo of those Eggos.

    Before now, I always did think waffles were not healthy-enough breakfast. I have always classified them with burgers, fries and other food one could easily consider as junk foods or fast foods. After going through your article, I was compelled to make more researches and I stand corrected. I sincerely want to THANK YOU for this insightful piece and be sure that I would have a lot of waffled-breakfast from now on. I hope you read my comment and also get check out MY WEBSITE for some exciting contents.
