Waffles from scratch with Homemade Syrup

Starting off by saying, I have already failed my “blog more” goal. Sixteen days into the year, it might a new record. I promise you I’m going to try {really hard} to post on here more.

Anyway if you are anything like me, you have a deep calling for breakfast. It’s Monday morning, which means 2 things. One: I’m dreaming of the weeken and two; Monday blues are a real thing. Especially when you have to work on a holiday {happy MLK day}. I live for the weekends {who doesn’t} mostly because I have time to actually make {and eat} breakfast. Having time to make breakfast is a huge blessing in disguise, not only does that mean experimenting with different recipes but also ending up with a carb filled delicious breakfast. So I decided to whip out the waffle maker this morning and get to work.

Funny story about the waffle maker. A few months ago, I had an unhealthy obsession with the waffle maker. When I say unhealthy obsession I mean like I was making everything from grilled cheese to potatoes in the waffle maker. Don’t worry, I came back to my senses and started using the waffle maker again to actually make waffle. That’s when I came across this waffle batter recipe from AllRecipes, after making a few adaptations and coming up with a syrup recipe this is one of my go to breakfast recipes.
