{Buttermilk Syrup}

This is the only syrup we use for THESE¬†and waffles and traditional pancakes. It is amazing, there really is nothing like it. I haven’t bought regular maple syrup from the store in a looong time thanks to this. Its easy to make and refrigerate afterwards to use again and again, if it lasts that long.


1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs light karo syrup
1/2 tsp baking soda


In a large saucepan (it needs to be larger, because this will foam up quite a bit) over medium heat, melt the butter, add the sugar, buttermilk, vanilla and karo syrup, mix all together and bring to a boil for about 1-2 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the baking soda (this is where the foam comes in) let sit for about 5 minutes or so to thicken up a bit before serving.

{Whole Wheat Belgian Waffles}

This was a delicious breakfast! We decided to serve them Bed and Breakfast style, with fresh strawberries, strawberry sauce, whipped cream and a little sprinkle of powdered sugar. Yummy!

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbs sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
1/3 cup melted butter

Preheat your iron while you make the waffle batter.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and butter or oil.

Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until combined.

Cook the waffles as directed in the instructions that came with your waffle iron.
