4-Ingredient Dutch Cream Waffle Recipe

waffle-recipe-4-ingredientsDid I ever tell you that my nickname in college was “Sha-Waffle”? It’s because I loved waffles so much. I remember late night trips to the club library and after working up an appetite, I would love going to IHOP or Denny’s and indulging on a delicious and buttery waffle. I’ll admit that if I do make waffles at home, they’re not always homemade. Usually, when I make them, I’m making them quickly and it’s boxed waffle mix to the rescue. Today, however, I’m sharing an easy 4-ingredient waffle recipe that’s pretty delicious.

I have no idea what it is about waffles and why they’ve have grabbed my heart. I mean, if we’re being honest with ourselves, waffles are just pancakes with indentions, right?

waffle-recipe-dutch-creamSo the path I took to finding a 4-ingredient waffle recipe was simply out of hunger. John and I were sitting around the house and we were both really hungry. I’m not sure why we didn’t just get dressed and go out to grab food but we didn’t. As I was rummaging through the kitchen trying to figure out what we could eat, I started Googling things. I somehow came across a few recipes for something called a Dutch cream waffle. There were quite a few sites that featured this waffle recipe but I decided to land on Le Creme de la Crumb’s recipe.

This Dutch waffle isn’t anything I’d heard of before but it’s a great option if you’re out of milk. I was a little apprehensive at first because the batter didn’t look like anything I was used to. While I was attempting to make this 4-ingredient waffle, John came in the kitchen and saw a look of despair on my face. I sadly said to him that I didn’t know if we were going to be eating waffles. In a split second, so much went through my mind. The most prevalent thought was that we were never going to eat. Do you see how irrational I get when I’m hungry?

Needless to say, I was surprised at the fluffiness of the waffle and the way it plumped up in the waffle maker. I did feel like the waffle needed a pinch of sugar or something. Maybe when you make it you’ll have a different experience. Whether you think it needs a sweetener or not, this is definitely an easy waffle that you can whip up in no time (literally).

A 4-ingredient waffle recipe is just what the doctor ordered.
