3 Steps To Making The Best Waffles Plus, Fabulous Family Fun Memories

These Buttermilk Waffles are delicious. Kids love them![/caption]

Buttermilk waffles are a family favorite at my house.  It seems like most kids love waffles.  These buttermilk waffles are a family favorite for weekends.  The buttermilk, pecans, and vanilla are a great combination in these homemade waffles.  Cooking waffles are a great way to get your family involved in the kitchen.  Have someone measure all the dry ingredients while others work on measuring the wet ingredients. Everyone could take turns using the waffle iron to make their waffle. This could all be done while the bacon is cooking in the oven.  See my post on oven-fried bacon.

I hope you take time with your children over the next few weeks while they are out of school and spend some quality time in the kitchen.  Everyone will learn how to work together along with many other valuable lessons.

Heat maple syrup and butter until melted.  Serve on top of the waffles.
