With tweens in the house, we’re in the midsts of sleepovers, campouts with the occasional lazy Sunday morning when we don’t have things to do. And on those days the normal cereal for breakfast just isn’t enough for the hungry kids. So although the apple and cinnamon muffins go down well it’s my ever so easy lazy morning waffles (as named by the kids) that are the biggest hit. So here you go my delicious and simple waffle recipe that the kids are loving.

I’ve tried lots of waffle recipes from the mass of cookbooks that I have but they are all so complicated. Split eggs, use about 100 bowls (or so it would seem).
But to be honest I’m more of a throw it all in a bowl, use a jug to pour onto the waffle iron, let it go and then watch the kids eat them.
And this recipe really works like that!
The speed that they go down I have to presume that they are good I honestly don’t know as by the time I’ve finished making them they have all disappeared.
The waffle batter mix makes 8 good sized waffles in my Waffle Iron but they fly off so quickly that it’s hard to tell.
Although you can keep a plate heated and pile them up as soon as they start cooking the kids descend on the kitchen drawn by the smell and start to eat them up.
We’re not flashy with toppings on a sleepover – there is maple syrup, chocolate sauce, and Nutella that’s it. It seems to cover everything that the kids enjoy.
