Sunday Morning Waffles …
Not long ago, a good friend of mine graciously lent me her waffle maker for a “test drive”. I’ve been wanting to buy one of my own, but like most kitchen gadgets, I wasn’t sure if it was something I was going to really use. My kids eat waffles for breakfast several times a week, so I thought, like pancakes, that it might be a good idea to make large batches of homemade waffles and freeze them.
So last Sunday, we tried out our first batch of homemade waffles. I’ll just say that I couldn’t make them fast enough! Everyone loved them…and they just kept asking for more! I was lucky enough to be able to sit down and eat the last two for my own breakfast.
I found a recipe on Recipezaar that I toyed with and made my own. We have made them 2 Sundays in a row and have really enjoyed them both times. I am thinking it is going to become a Sunday tradition…
I guess I’ll be going out to buy my own waffle maker this week…thank you Betsy for the loaner! 😉

The waffles look wonderful. We love whole wheat waffles on weekends. We also freeze them and heat them up in the toaster. YUM!
Lovely photos! I bought the All CLad waffle maker from Williams Sonoma a few months back. And I make a whole big batch of waffles at a time and freeze them for the kiddos breakfast! No Eggos in my house anymore!
Aggie, your waffles look really great. Freezing them gives a really quick start to weekday breakfasts. That’s an awfully cute picture of the little ones heading toward the water.
We LOVE our waffle maker! I never thought about making a bundle and freezing them! Def going to be doing this in the future! Thank you for the idea!!
Look great, Aggie! What a great idea to freeze them for later use – a great quick breakfast idea!
Just getting back from Italy and trying to catch up with everyone! 🙂
I would love to make waffles, but with 5 kids that might all I get done that day. 🙂 I found a giant griddle, but haven’t found a giant waffle maker…
That’s nice that she did. Now you’re making delicious waffles for your family.
Hi Aggie… I have not had waffles since my dad made them = ( all the lovely crevices which the butter and syrup can sink into…divine.
Sorry I missed a few posts = (
Those look lovely. One of my favorite foods too. And I don’t own a waffle maker for the same reasons you were talking about.
Plus I am afraid that I will become addicted to them and eat them day and night.
I think it’s better for me to get them when I go out for breakfast or brunch 🙂 (kind of like portion control, hehehe)
I have a waffle recipe taught to me by my Icelandic neighbor from when the kids were babies. I always have them in the freezer. For awhile, it’s all the kids would eat for breakfast! I have 2 waffle makers, and I mix the dry ingredients in advance and keep them in tubs, so they’re there when I need them. Isn’t breakfast great?
I love the healthy recipe. I am book marking. My kids love when i make waffles…we have a heart shaped waffle maker:)
Those look wicked good. I love waffles and pancakes. I actually have a bunch of frozen homemade pancakes in the freezer right now. I know what I’m having for breakfast. 😉
I recently bought a waffle maker and it changed my life (and my daughter’s). While I make her “normal” waffles, I often make myself ricotta waffles. Yours look delicious!
Your waffles look great! I just got a waffle maker this past Christmas, and I’m so happy with it! I haven’t made them from scratch yet (still relying on the waffle mix), but I’d love to try this recipe! I do love how you can freeze them on a weekend and just pop them in the toaster any day of the week.
I like making waffles instead of pancakes. Waffles need less babysitting so I can do other things while they cook.
Love the beach shot!
I really like that you used whole wheat for the waffles – they look delicious.
These look fantastic!
What a darling beach shot! Your waffles look great, too. My entire family enjoys waffles and I know they would snarf these up in mere seconds! I bet these frozen treats taste way better than Eggos! YUM!
These waffles look so good!And for breakfast it is a nice suggestion.
Freezing homemade waffles is such a great idea, especially when everyone is on the go. I like that you used whole wheat flour. Did it change the texture of the batter very much?
Adorable beach shot of your little ones!
Aggie, this looks delicious!! MMMMMM….Lovely!!
These look so good! I am really loving traditions lately. I need to make some more for us. Oh and thanks for the sunny picture!!! No fair!!!
Yum – they look super delicious. I love how you snuck the flax in there!
These look great and so perfect for a Sunday morning!
Aggie! I just LOVE ur site!!! :o)
Do u have to use all purpose flour with the whole wheat flour or could u just use 2 cups of whole wheat?
Hi Allison! I am afraid it might come out very heavy and dense with all whole wheat, I’ve tried it with other recipes, and I finally started just cutting it with the AP flour. But, maybe whole wheat pastry flour will work better, I believe it’s lighter but still a whole grain. Have you ever tried it?
