How would you describe your school day mornings?
If you’re like me, you’re rushed.
By the time we get to the kitchen, there’s little time to make a full breakfast.
What to do? A quick and cold cereal, or a warm and yummy treat?
Next time you reach for that package of frozen waffles, consider this alternative. These are easy to make, freeze well and toast for an easy meal on the go.
Here’s an easy breakfast idea for busy school mornings and relaxing weekends.
Belgian waffles cook quickly in a waffle iron and emerge a beautiful golden colour. They have a smell that’s warm and inviting!
In order to save time during our busy school week, I make extra waffles on the weekend and freeze what we don’t eat in individual bags. Then when serving them, I simply toast them on low in a pop-up toaster, and they are ready.
When you’re running late, they are a perfect little package to eat on the way to school.
The recipe that I use is a simple one. You mix the dry ingredients together, you mix the wet ingredients, then you mix it all together. That’s it!
This recipe makes approximately 8-10 waffles.
