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.

Spicing up the Mix

  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:
    • Make Waffles
    • Make One Egg Waffles
    • Make Belgian Waffles.
  2. Add fruit, nuts, herbs, spices, or cheese. Each of these additions gives the waffle a new taste twist.
  3. Add cocoa for a chocolate waffle.
    • You could also add crumbled crispy bacon to the waffle mix. The combination of salty bacon and sweet toppings naturally compliment each other.
  4. Add pureed fruit for strawberry, peach, mango, etc., flavored waffles.
  5. Make substitutions for water such as pineapple juice and chunks.

Adding Different Toppings

  1. Add chopped fruit, including strawberries, or stewed fruit.
  2. Add various flavors of ice cream.
  3. Smother it in cream and chopped banana slices.
  4. Cover the waffle with chocolate.
  5. Add cooked ham and egg. This is a great "cooked full breakfast" variant.
  6. Sprinkle coconut over the waffle.
  7. Slather jam or jelly on your waffle.
  8. Shake powdered sugar over the waffle. While simple, it's a very effective flavor boost.
  9. Make a fruit salad waffle. Use as many different fruits as you'd like to add flavor and interest.

Changing the Presentation of Waffles

  1. Look for waffle shapes in your kids' favorite characters.
  2. Create heart shaped waffles for an interesting variation on the usual. These are ideal for Valentine's Day or breakfast in bed for a loved one.
    • Any shape different from your usual shape can be fun.
  3. Layer the waffles. Rather than simply placing the waffle on a plate as if that's all there is to it, try a fancy presentation..
  4. Make a little mountain from the waffle.
  5. Take the time to make the cream into little shapes such as stars. It can look very effective when evenly balanced across the waffle.
  6. 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.
  7. Make a waffle "wrap". Fill with sliced meat and cheese, or roasted vegetables.
  8. 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.
  • Melt butter to drizzle on top of the waffles.
  • Allow your first waffle to be a test to see if you need to adjust the heat setting.
  • If you don't want to make waffles you can get the toaster ones from the supermarket
