The Best Breakfast You’ll Ever Make (For Real Though): My Grandma’s Waffle Recipe

Grandma's waffle recipe: best ever
My late maternal grandmother was an incredible woman. With a deep and everlasting love for family, for good friends, and a really well-crafted baked good, she was a also a master in the kitchen. Homemade pastry, next-level chocolate chip cookies (you can grab her recipe here), a picture perfect sunday roast… there wasn’t anything she couldn’t do. But her claim to fame has always been the waffle. They were bar none, hands down, the best waffles in the entire world – I have no doubt about it. Light as air on the inside, crispy and golden on the outside, they were literal perfection in every sense of the word. She’d always serve them alongside her homemade wild blueberry sauce, and we’d all go a little nutty each and every time. Needless to say, it’s a bit of an honour to share my Grandmas waffle recipe here today.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we have over the years – and if you do whip em’ up please share on instagram using the hashtag #LarkandLinenRecipe. 

PS – this maple syrup is my absolute favourite. You simply can’t beat real, Canadian, maple syrup – let me tell you

    My husband is a first responder, so he works a lot of weekends. When he is home on a Sunday, we often do a big family breakfast with our three children. A tradition that our children look forward to, often asking at the beginning of the week if Dad will be off the following weekend, knowing we will have a big family meal, together. I can’t wait to incorporate these waffles into our Sunday breakfasts, I am sure they will be a hit! xo

    Do you think they come out better with butter or oil? I know it makes a huge difference when I make cakes so I’m just curious which one makes a better waffle :-)

    “Add to wet mixture to flower mixture” – Should be ‘flour’ mixture…..

  6. Jake says:

    Can you post the wild blueberry sauce recipe also? That sounds like a perfect combination :)
