How to Spice Up a Plain Waffle

Shared by Mystech

One of the simplest ways is to NOT use frozen ones. You know who you are! 😉

Plain waffles might do it for a while but there will always be a time when spicing up your waffle makes it more than just breakfast – it becomes a feast for brunch. This article provides you with some delicious suggestions for spicing up your plain waffle.


  1. Know how to make waffles from scratch. Making your own waffles means that the taste will always be superior to the commercial mix. Trying out different recipes might be enough on its own to provide a spiced-up waffle, and wikiHow has some excellent suggestions:

  2. Spice up the mix. Even before you get to the stage of adding delicious waffle toppings, consider spicing up the waffle mix pre-cooking. Some delicious ideas include:
    • Add fruit, nuts, herbs, spices, or cheese. Each of these additions gives the waffle a new taste twist.
    • Add cocoa for a chocolate waffle.

    • Add pureed fruit for strawberry, peach, mango, etc., flavored waffles.
    • Make substitutions for water such as pineapple juice and chunks.
  3. Add different toppings and spreads to the waffles. Be daring and move beyond the butter or maple syrup. There is an infinite variety of choices possible! Some of these include:
    • Add chopped fruit, including strawberries, or stewed fruit.

    • Add various flavors of ice cream.

    • Smother it in cream and chopped banana slices.

    • Cover the waffle with chocolate.

    • Add cooked ham and egg. This is a great “cooked full breakfast” variant.

    • Sprinkle coconut over the waffle.

    • Slather jam or jelly on your waffle.

    • Shake powdered sugar over the waffle. While simple, it’s a very effective flavor boost.

    • Make a fruit salad waffle. Use as many different fruits as you’d like to add flavor and interest.

  4. Try different waffle shapes. Waffles made into various novel shapes can be a brilliant way to spice up a plain waffle. This technique can be especially handy for kids and for romantic breakfasts.
    • Look for waffle shapes in your kids’ favorite characters.

    • Heart shaped waffles make an interesting variation on the usual and are ideal for Valentine’s Day or breakfast in bed for a loved one.

    • Any shape different from your usual shape can be fun.

  5. Present the waffle in new ways. Rather than simply placing the waffle on a plate as if that’s all there is to it, try a fancy presentation.
    • Layer the waffle.

    • Make a little mountain from the waffle.

    • Take the time to make the cream into little shapes such as stars. It can look very effective when evenly balanced across the waffle.

    • Make a waffle ice cream sandwich. Use two waffles for the edges and fill with ice cream. Use a knife to cut and square off the ice cream. See also Make a Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Waffle Sandwich and Make a Peanut Butter and Apple Waffle Sandwich.

    • Make a waffle “wrap”. Fill with sliced meat and cheese, or roasted vegetables.

  6. Hold a waffle cook-off with your friends. Challenge one another to come up with the tastiest, most interestingly presented waffles for brunch one weekend. Whatever the weather, this can be a really fun way to cook up a shared breakfast together, and will definitely spice up your waffle experience!



  • The more you add to the mix, the more the heat setting/cook time will need to increase.
  • Allow your first waffle to be a test to see if you need to adjust the heat setting.
  • Melt butter to drizzle on top of the waffles.


  • Be careful of the hot waffle iron. Supervise children cooking waffles.
