Valentine’s Day Breakfast Waffles

Although we don’t make a huge fuss of Valentine’s Day it’s nice to have a little treat especially if it falls in half term where I have a bit more time in the morning. These were requested by my eldest as he wanted some red waffles for Valentine’s day.

They are super fluffy and although they do take a little longer to prepare than our easy waffle recipe it is worth it for the taste.

We’ve topped them with a cream cheese glaze, but you could use your preferred topping, in fact why not have these for dessert and top with some ice-cream!
