Sharing the BEST waffle recipe from scratch, my Nana Kay’s easy & delicious homemade waffles recipe!

Maybe for some of you waffles don’t remind you of summer but growing up every summer we would go to my Nana and Grandpop’s house on Long Beach Island and they would make homemade waffles for breakfast.

I am not sure how many batches of waffles Nana and Grandpop would make for my big family but I do remember having to wait my turn… and we always served the homemade waffles from youngest to oldest which is the same way we do it in my home today!

Step FIVE – Add your Waffle Batter to the Waffle Iron.

Bake your batter in your favorite waffle iron.

I find that a soup ladle does a great job adding waffle batter to a waffle iron.

I was fortunate enough to know her into my teen years.  

She was an amazing knitter and would knit all my sweaters, hats, gloves and scarves growing up:).
