I have made these Strawberry Waffles numerous times over the past year and they are always a hit with the family. They are also especially perfect for using up a few leftover strawberries and come together quickly.
A basic flour mixture with sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and a little nutmeg is combined with chopped fresh strawberries and buttermilk to create a light batter. Spoonfuls of the mixture are then heated in a waffle iron until golden and fragrant, then served warm with desired toppings.
For Valentine’s Day, I topped the Strawberry Waffles with a few festive sprinkles, cacao nibs, whipped cream, and fresh strawberries cut into hearts. The kids love to add a drizzle of chocolate sauce (or even Nutella). Simply butter and a drizzle of maple syrup would be perfect for a lighter, easy breakfast.
A Few Waffle Tips
If the batter is too thick, whisk in a splash or two more of buttermilk. If too thin, add a little more flour (be careful not to add too much or the waffles will lose their tender and light texture). Mix the ingredients together until just combined with no streaks.
Want to serve the waffles warm all at once? Preheat an oven to 250˚F (120˚C) and arrange the cooked waffles in a single layer on a baking sheet. Keep in the warm oven until all the batter is prepared.
Leftover Strawberry Waffles can be frozen in a single layer until solid, then transferred to a freezer-safe bag. Bake straight from the freezer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and in a 350˚F (180˚C) oven until heated through, about 10 minutes.
The amount of waffles created will depend on the type of waffle iron. My parents gave me a mini waffle maker a few years ago and the kids enjoy the smaller size. This recipe makes about 10-12 miniature waffles, but closer to 6-8 standard sized.
