Homemade Belgian Waffles

It’s International Waffle Day so of course we had to celebrate this momentous occasion with a waffle recipe. Waffle Day was first celebrated in Sweden but has gained universal appeal due to the deliciousness that is waffles. Belgian Waffles are thicker than regular waffles which makes them perfect for holding lots of toppings. We love to pile fresh fruit on top of our waffles but you can top yours with whatever you like – berries, bananas, Nutella, chocolate sauce, maple syrup, ice cream, cream, yoghurt, sprinkles – you’re only limited by your imagination.
