International Waffle Day recipes

International Waffle is today!  25th March is International Waffle Day so what better time than today to share my favourite waffle recipes.

International Waffle Day

Regular readers will know I am a huge fan of waffles and use our waffle maker to cook all sorts of things (it isnt just for waffles you know, you havent lived until you have done a whole cooked breakfast in your waffle machine).

First up on my list of favourite waffle recipes is the one above for

Mini Egg waffles.

Madness I know, and I thought it would be a complete disaster because the chocolate would melt all over the waffle machine.   However, it didn’t. The batter rose and covered the chocolatey eggs, encasing them in waffly magic.

Why not give them a go, yourself?

If you don’t want something quite so seasonal, how about trying one of these other recipes

Bounty Waffles

Pimms Waffles

Coconut and raspberry waffles

Gin flavoured waffles

Chocolate waffle cake

If you want to go ALL OUT and create a stunning centre piece then how about this, I made the cake mixture but you could just as easily do it with a shop bought packet cake mix, cooked in the waffle machine and then decorated with cream and strawberries. The trick is to leave each cooked cake/waffle until it has completely cooled — trying to remove it when even remotely warm will cause it to fall apart.

PS if you like all things Waffle, have you seen I have a Waffle board on Pinterest?

  • Just going for my run… But these look tasty for when I return! My waffle maker always seems to stick. Do you have to pre oil yours? Mind you it’s pretty old. Could probably do with an upgrade!!

    • Nope, have never had to grease mine for waffles, though I do if I am waffling something other than waffles. Then I use one of those squirty oils like Flora.

      • Ok. I’ll try it!! (Wondered if you would delete my comment above tho as the url is wrong and it is linking to something dodgy which I need to sort out and I’m pretty sure you don’t want that link on here. ) many thanks. Ann
