Are you a pancake, french toast or waffle person? I feel like most people tend to fit into one of three categories and really only switch teams when one of the offerings is hard to resist. 

Me? For the most part I’m a french toast gal. I just love the crispness of the bread against the custardy inside.  Plus pancakes tend to be too filling (although I won’t say no if someone wants to go to Clinton St. Baking Co.) and for a long time I was a waffle snob.

I still kind of am a waffle snob. To me waffles come from one place and need to be made one way.

From Belgium and with pearl sugar.

Do you know the problem with that? I was really limiting myself when the waffle craving hit. It was either make my way out to the waffle truck or dedicate 2+ hours in the morning to waffle making.

Yeah, so that kind of meant to get over my waffle snobbery.  Do you know how I figured it out? By adding texture to the waffles!

Belgian-style waffles, i.e. the bland and fluffy ones you get at the diner weren’t going to happen. Adding cornmeal to the mix gives crunch in every bite and more flavor than just flour.  

Those blueberries? An added bonus for color and taste. Don’t have blueberries around? Add raspberries or blackberries. 

So maybe after all you can learn to love more than one breakfasty bread in the morning.

    Oooh, I love that you throw French toast into the mix–if it comes down to it, then I’m firmly in the waffles camp (though French toast is so tempting). Your cornmeal waffles sound amazing!

    I never did get a waffle maker back when I got married. And somehow, I’ve managed to go all these years without one! If I did have one, these would be on the list of waffles to make for sure. Heck, I may even go out and buy one so I can try them out. 🙂 They look great!

      That was a must when I got married. Although every time I use it I regret the model I bought. It’s impossible to clean. One of these days I’ll get a new one.
