Red Velvet Belgian Waffles

Homemade waffle

Breakfast is one of the things that really stress me out. It has to be quick and at the same time can appeal to your kids appetite especially very early in the morning. I hate it if I made something and it is left untouched by them… and normally if they do that, the next morning they will have cereals for breakfast hehehe. I know I know.. I am a terrible mother. Don’t have to state the obvious…

Normally I do make things that they love in advance and freeze them such as rissoles and murtabak filling, so in the morning, I just need to fry them or assemble a mini murtabak for breakfast. So.. this waffle was made to see if it is worthy enough to make it to the breakfast table hahaha. I made the whole batch last week and it yielded about 16 small squares of waffles. I freezed a few squares and last weekend I reheated them up using the toaster and the waffle iron. Both turned up to be okay but my preference is still using waffle iron. I am pleased to tell you that this recipe is good enough to be another frozen food items in the freeze hehehe.
