As a working mom, I don’t always have the time on weekdays to cook Pickle an elaborate breakfast. I try to make up for that on the weekends by cooking things I know that she will love, and that require a bit more effort than opening a yogurt container or pouring a bowl of cereal.
Waffles are a family favorite, and this is an interesting twist to a typical waffle. We have a belgian waffle maker, and this recipe will make four large belgian waffles. They also freeze decently, and can be thrown in the microwave or toaster over to reheat on a school morning.
- 1 3/4 c. flour
- 1/4 c. cornstarch
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp light brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 c. milk
- 1/4 applesauce (I prefer a chunky version to make the waffle more apple flavored)
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- sprinkle of nutmeg
- Heat your waffle iron and be sure to butter or spray with cooking spray.
- Wisk together all your wet ingredients. Combine all the dry ingredients and then wisk into the wet ingredients.
- Cook waffle until golden brown per your waffle iron instructions.
- Top with butter and syrup as desired.
- You can also add chopped apple to the batter to intensify the apple component, and my daughter still likes chocolate chips in hers!
