Homemade Strawberry Waffles are a complete joy to wake up to. The strawberries and lemon whipped cream make these truly amazing.
Then I got side tracked by making desserts for fall and the holidays. All of a sudden, the New Year was here, and I just realized that I haven’t made any more waffles.
I’m on a mission to change that right now. Our kids love homemade pancakes, so I have a feeling that a few more batches of homemade strawberry waffles in the freezer would be ok with them.
Usually when I buy fresh fruit it mysteriously disappears. There are three kids that transform into fruit monsters when I turn my back.
Not that I’m complaining. I’m glad they still like to eat fruit over the brownies and congo bars that are usually sitting on our counters.
Of course, that means I need to be smart and buy extra fruit when I want to make something, because it will be gone in a hurry.
Last week I bought a couple extra boxes of fresh strawberries for snacking and because I was going to make another batch of strawberry Nutella twists for an after school snack. But then I saw my lonely waffle iron and decided that a batch of waffles was a better idea.
I’m not a morning person, so I take any chance I can get to make breakfast ahead of time. These waffles can be refrigerated for a few days if you think your family will eat them quickly.
Or you can lay them in a single layer on parchment and freeze them for 30 minutes before putting them into a large freezer bag.
Now comes the fun part of a waffle… the toppings! I happen to love making my waffles look like they are from a fancy breakfast restaurant.
Give me all the dips, fresh fruit, and powdered sugar on top. My daughter, on the other hand, just wants syrup on her waffles.
Either way is perfectly acceptable, but why settle for plain syrup when you can jazz those homemade strawberry waffles up with lots of lemon cream goodness and fresh berries?
These homemade strawberry waffles are perfectly spring-y and full of flavor. I know you’ll love them!
