When it comes to food, sometimes I can be a bit indecisive. These Raspberry Almond Belgian Waffles? The perfect example. When my husband asks where I’d like to eat on a rare night out, it drives him crazy when I name a list of places as I always have a multitude of options that sound good at any given time. These waffles came about as I had two ideas on what to make one day – the other was this Raspberry Almond Cheesecake Cake – and instead of selecting just one, I made both. You’re welcome.
I mean, can you imagine what you’d do if a tray of theseRaspberry Almond Belgian Waffles was set before you? It would be like the breakfast and brunch angels got together and decided to reward you for a lifetime of good deeds in a single meal. A waffle that’s soft and fluffy on the inside, yet crispy on the outside. In other words, perfection. These waffles are a spin-off of my infamous Yogurt Waffles which also inspired my Chocolate Chip Yogurt Waffles. Yes, I take waffles very seriously!
The raspberry almond flavor that makes these waffles so special? Talk about the most delicious shortcut ever! A jar of Raspberry Amaretto Preserves from Robert Rothschild Farm is the secret to taking these waffles from ordinary to extraordinary. A delicate blend of sun-ripened raspberries combined with the delightful sweet almond taste of amaretto. I love that there are only seven ingredients included in these preserves and I can pronounce every single one of them, just like all of their other products. And seriously, their new packaging is seriously stunning. I’m in love with that copper colored lid!
But what’s a waffle without syrup? I melted additional preserves and whisked them into maple syrup for the ultimate waffle topping. Garnish with fresh raspberries and sliced almonds and you’ve got a restaurant quality dish in a matter of minutes! I’m also thinking this would be the easiest meal ever to impress mom on Mother’s Day. (hint, hint.)
SIDE NOTE: Looking for a great waffle maker? I absolutely love this waffle maker as it makes TWO waffles at once! Gone are the days of taking forever to make everyone waffles as they eagerly await breakfast. I also love that you’re able to set your desired doneness and it then beeps when ready. No more constantly opening and closing the waffle iron to check on things.
Can I make a final suggestion? Double this recipe. No, triple it. Any leftovers of these Raspberry Almond Belgian Waffles can be frozen for a quick and easy treat any day of the week. Believe me, your family will thank you. And you’ll thank me. It’s like a never ending train of thankfulness.
