Strawberry Vanilla Waffles

Sharing is caring!

Strawberry Vanilla Waffles are crispy and golden outside, tender and moist inside, with hints of vanilla peeking through and topped with mountains of fresh strawberries! The perfect Spring treat!

It’s Spring!  One thing I absolutely love about spring are all the fresh strawberries you can find in your local market.  They’re screaming “Hey!  We’re over here!”.  Admit it!  Your cart just automatically heads over in their direction.

Strawberry Waffles

I grew up in a small town in San Diego County, California. We were surrounded by strawberry fields! One of things I miss about California, besides the ocean, are those wonderful red gems of juicy fruit!

Every spring I would watch those specks of red starting to dot the hillsides.  It was glorious! I just knew that any day, I would get to go to the strawberry stand with my Mom and pick up a flat of berries. I also knew I would sneak one, bite into it, and have the juice just run down my chin! (I might actually be drooling right now!)

There is nothing like giant, fresh picked, strawberries!  I’m pretty sure there are going to be fresh strawberry stands in heaven! There has to be if it’s going to heaven for heaven’s sake!

I was in the market Friday and sure enough, those little red jewels started crying out to me and my cart took on a life of its own. So, Sunday I whipped up a batch of my favorite strawberry vanilla waffles! Nothing say’s “Good morning Sunshine” like this beautiful waffle smiling up at you! I know it made me jump out of bed!

Strawberry Waffle Love!

These are really simple to make. I used my Belgian waffle iron but, you could use a regular waffle iron and it will be just as amazing!

One little secret is to drizzle a little maple syrup on the waffle before topping them with the fresh cut up strawberries. It just kicks up the flavor a notch or two. Be sure to make your bowl of strawberries and sugar first so they have plenty of time to macerate.  (That’s just a fancy word for making juice out of your fresh fruit). It helps to create the perfect strawberry topping for that vanilla waffle.

Strawberry Waffles! The perfect Springtime breakfast!

After your berries are doing their thing, mix up the waffle batter.  If you don’t like vanilla you can just omit that from the batter recipe.  I absolutely love the added flavor! Either way this recipe makes the most delicious crispy vanilla waffle!

TIP: Be sure to spray your waffle iron between each waffle so that you don’t end up with a sticky mess!  Plus, they just make the waffles extra crispy.

 There is just something amazing about that wonderful crispy vanilla waffle with those beautiful sweet ripe strawberries! It makes for the perfect combination! Top it off with some yummy whipped cream!

I hope you enjoy these wonderful springtime waffles as much as I do!  Watch out!  Your little birdies are going to give you sweet sticky kisses!
