We love waffles for breakfast and on Christmas morning it's one of the days that the kids get a real treat of fun waffles with our delicious Christmas tree Belgium waffles. There's nothing difficult about them and they take just 10 minutes to prep and look fantastic as well as tasting delicious. As they are so good we had to share them with you so here you go our delicious Christmas Waffles.
Christmas Belgium Waffles
Whether you have these on Christmas morning like us or you make them for a treat to share with the family these are one of our favourites to enjoy this time of the year.
Unlike our easy waffle recipe, these do take a little more prep to get them really fluffy and extra mixing to get the Christmas tree colour right. The key to them is separating the egg yolk and white so that you can beat the egg whites.
The extra fluffiness means that in the holes you get some of the frosting collect and it tastes extra special.
Growing up Christmas morning breakfast was the one day that we could have a really sugar filled breakfast, my kids may get it more than once a year but I know as a parent I need that sugar fix.
I tend to be one of the first to come downstairs to get the turkey started and then will mix up the batter for these waffles and switch on the waffle iron to heat up. Then head back upstairs to watch the kids open their presents in the stocking.
By the time, that's done (it's really quick in our house!) the waffle iron has heated up and I can head down and start to make up the waffles.
Got a family member who doesn't like waffles then our Christmas Cinnamon Roll Recipe is a great alternative and they will love them.
How to Keep your Waffles Warm so you can Breakfast Together!
My mom had a hostess trolley and Christmas day was the one day of the year that it was used. From breakfast through to Christmas dinner it was on and kept everything warm so that we could all eat together.
I don't have a hostess trolley, so instead we have worked out a system in our little oven. As the oven is heated with the turkey cooking I use the top oven to keep the waffles warm on the plates so that I can decorate them.
Plating up your Christmas Waffles
This is the fun bit of Christmas breakfast, plating up the waffles, the glaze or frosting is really quick to make so whilst the waffle iron is cooking I make that up and then start to plate them up.
Our waffle iron is circular and the waffles split into 4 pieces, so I split it up and then to have a more "authentic" Christmas tree I place just ¾s of the pieces in a stack.
Don't worry that spare one is great this mix makes 5 servings - 4 waffles in total and then the remaining one is used to create an extra plate that normally the kids share.
With the stack of 3 in the shape of a tree I then drizzle the glaze to look like tinsel and add a few sprinkles I have laying around. They kids love them it's the best thing for Christmas morning they say!
