Fruit Belgian Waffles, Easy to Make!

I love Fruit Belgian Waffles, and I have been wanting a way to make them at home for quite some time.

Squee, I love new small appliances! {oops, my domestic self is showing}
Recently I got a Flip Belgian Waffle Baker with Removable Grids from Hamilton Beach.

Oh how I adore thee! I have been wanting a Belgian Waffle Maker for some time now, yet always wondered: Do I really need it? Will I use it enough?

I know the answer now: YES!

When I first got the appliance my husband’s eyes popped out, “You mean like the ones you see in restaurants and hotel breakfasts?” Again, YES! The Belgian Waffle Baker has the professional {and very cool to use} flip feature to ensure even baking of the waffles. Impressive, right?

Well hold on, here are some more features:

  • Brushed stainless steel housing
  • Removable, dishwasher safe, non-stick grids
  • Power and Ready indicator lights
  • Drip tray catches excess batter
  • Browning control
  • Cool touch handle

Not sure what I love more, the flip feature or the fact that I can pop thie grids into the dishwasher to clean. Wait, I know what I adore best – the waffles it makes!! Duh!

Make your own batter {or use the store-bought boxed kind, it doesn’t matter}, and spray the grids with cooking spray {you have to do this or they’ll stick}. Then pour your batter into the grids until covered. Then you close, flip and wait just a few minutes. They pop out just like that and there you have it – Belgian Waffles!

I serve ours with syrup, fresh or de-thawed {from frozen} fruit. I suggest strawberries and blueberries, our favorite combination. Then add a dollop of whipped topping to finish the dish.

Weekends especially, the girls request waffles more often than pancakes now. Which is fine with me because making these waffles is quicker {less than 10 minutes}. They come out of the grids fluffy and when served as Belgian Fruit Waffles – delish! Look at the photo above, I made our waffles before the topping fully unthawed. That’s fast!

So yes, I use this small appliance often. I now wonder what the heck I was waiting for! You can get yours at Sears in Canada, for an ARV of $59.99.

  1. Oh these look delicious I have a waffle maker and would not do without it now! We have waffles quite often in our house!

  2. I’ve been jonesing for a waffle iron for ages; now you’ve convinced me to get one! I’m a big fan of simple recipes, and of knowing exactly what’s in my family’s food, which is why I steer clear of the boxed waffles from my childhood. 🙂 But now, everything changes…
