It’s hard to be grumpy while staring down a fresh pile of warm waffles slathered in butter and dripping with syrup. That simple. Start Sunday right!
They say that as you age your perception of time changes. As a child, summer seems an eternity away… I never really understood this. I blinked, and here it is the end of another month, with work, bike rides, and at least one hopeful day at a beach calling out to me as summer rapidly approaches. Life got fast. There’s a rush to get out the door to accomplish everything that is supposed to get done today. A rush to come home to finish up, make supper and do the daily chores. There seems to be never enough time these days. What happened to that eternal summer?
Can Life be Simple again?
With all the things that drive our busy lives to go go go, when was the last time you slowed down to enjoy the simple things? Sunday breakfast has become one of my favorite moments. It seems to slow down time and allow everyone to gather, sit and pause before everything starts all over again.
A Warm Pile of Waffles on a Sunday Morning
This breakfast was a spontaneous fix while a couple of friends helped Handsome repair a broken heater on the quick, one Sunday morning. I whipped up some simple Sunday morning waffles, eggs, kielbasa, and foraged for some leftover fresh banana bread as well. It was a regular old fashioned spread. The kind that reminded me of childhood. I figured, if I couldn’t help with all the heavy lifting, I could at least let everyone slow down for a moment and just enjoy one another’s company… We all paused over syrup choices and laughter for a moment, right before life sped up again.

Spiked Eggnog Belgian Waffles with Warmed Boozy Syrup
Apple Pie Waffles
Belgian-Style Yeast Waffles
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 oz unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups buttermilk, room temperature
- Non-stick vegetable spray, for waffle iron
- Allow your waffle iron to preheat according to manufacturers directions. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F and lay a wire rack inside of a baking sheet.
- In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar together.
- In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, butter, and buttermilk.
- Stir egg mixture into the dry ingredients, without overworking. Let rest for 5 minutes.
- Grease the waffle iron with the spray (if required), portion out waffle batter (I use a 1/3 cup scoop for my waffle maker), close and cook until crispy and golden on both sides (they should easily come out of the waffle maker).
- Arrange waffles on wire rack and place in oven to keep warm as you work through the batter.
- Serve with breakfast fixings.
