We are winding down with our last few French Fridays with Dorie recipes, and happy for a break  from the fish and aspic to focus on this lovely Waffles and Cream Dessert.

Belgian Waffles and Cream Dessert

Bill, AKA the picky hubby, has not liked my homemade waffles thus far. I’ve whipped up egg whites to create fluffy waffles with a crisp exterior to lackluster reviews.

Yes, he is a Bisquick fan and not shy to admit it. So could I serve him this waffles and cream dessert for breakfast or even dessert without a little grumbling? I wasn’t so sure.

The Process

As I’m not the waffle maker in our household, there was a little trial and error. The first one stuck securely to our non-stick waffle maker, so I sprayed a generous portion of Pam onto the surface before cooking up round two.

Light, sweet with a crispy exterior, my second attempt went off without a hitch. I thought the results were marvelous. Bill grabbed a chocolate confection I had prepared earlier in the week for his dessert that night, but eyed the stack in the fridge the next morning.

While I was at yoga, he devoured the leftovers, mixing the strawberries and cream for his personalized topping. Dorie suggested fudge or caramel sauce, but maybe not ideal for breakfast.

Ice cream is another alternative when serving as dessert. A fourth hubby approved recipe in a row!

  2. Yay – is this a Bill approved record? Your waffles look so delicious. Waffle making is definitely an art with wrangling the pan.

  3. Very pretty and now I have a serious hankering for some strawberries too:@)

  4. These look so good, my perfect breakfast!

  5. Four in a row? That’s an impressive run. Although, I have a feeling the winning streak will end with next week’s salmon tartare 🙂

  6. I haven’t perfected waffle making so I’ll have to give these a go. They look great!!!

  7. Mmm.. yummy! These waffles look just perfect!

  8. Waffles, strawberries and cream – the perfect breakfast combo for me! I love Dorie Greenspan, too! Pinned to remind me I need to make this for my family. 🙂

  9. I want the same for my breakfast ! Bill make me laught, he is so playful, just like a kid 😉
    Happy Easter Liz ! x

  10. Whoo hoo for 4 approved recipes in a row! Is it a record? 🙂
    Looks beautiful and I bet it was a fantastic breakfast!

  11. We are a waffle family and make a version once a weekend. I will try this version. (My sister is a biskquick fanatic, too. I have never really seen the appeal.)

  12. We love waffles in our house…Dorie’s recipe was a delectable winner! Yours look gorgeous, Lizzy!

  13. Ahhh I so need to a get waffle maker :/ I’m missing out on so much.

    These look PERFECT! I actually prefer them with strawberries and cream. Although waffles for dessert is a great idea too. Going to be missing French Fridays 🙁


  14. They look perfect Liz – and soooo yummy!

  15. I knew your waffles would be picture perfect, Liz!

  16. Liz, haha my Paul is also a Bisquick fan and not shy to admit it either. . but glad these waffles were a hit!!! they look delicious!!! Happy Easter weekend to you and your family Liz!

  17. Homemade waffles are one of my favorite weekends treats! These look perfect!

  18. Wow, Bill’s been surprising in his tastes lately. I’m guessing that his streak will be broken with next week’s recipe. Your mention of Bisquick reminds me that my mother made pancakes with Hungry Jack mix and waffles with Bisquick, so they would taste different. Where are your signature raspberries this week?

  19. Oh my word! I love these simple yet delicious waffles!

  20. If at first you don’t succeed try try again! The second one worked better for me too. Must be a thing. We had no leftovers by morning!

  21. I was craving waffles right before I gave birth. I finally made them one morning only to have them completely stick. They tasted good but where a mound of mess on the plate. These look fantastic. I love that Bill sneaked his big taste while you were out.

  22. If didn’t like these waffles I would say he was certifiable. Your toppings sounded wonderful. Glad you got to escape for a little yoga. I need to get back to yoga myself.

  23. They are pretty as a picture Liz. I think you have now become the official waffle maker at your house!

  24. Lovely photos! I can’t wait to try these with strawberries.

    Happy Easter!

  25. Aw Lizzy this look georgeous!!!
    Love it!
    Have a happy easter!

  26. Look wonderful and delicious Lizzy:))
    Have a nice weekend!

  27. Lol, I’m sure you’re relieved to be done with aspics for a while! These waffles look perfect, Liz! And Bill’s a smart man for topping them with whipped cream and strawberries – that’s always a fabulous combination! Have a wonderful Easter weekend, my friend!

  28. There’s nothing more delicious than waffles with cream… I am sold..

  29. I’d choose these over fish aspic any day. 🙂 Breakfast or dessert, either would be okay with me, especially with those lovely strawberries on top!

  30. If I could wake up to a plate of these every morning.. I would be one happy person Liz. Perfect stack of waffles!

  31. not my typical breakfast, but i bet i’m ready to perform extraction surgery of impacted wisdom tooth, lol

  32. Good on you for persevering! I tried waffles once and they stuck terribly so I made them into pancakes. I should have kept going and spraying it!

  33. I should just get a waffle maker already! This looks so good!

  34. Even though you are not the waffle maker in your family, you are much better at making waffles than me. I don’t even own a waffle iron. I think they are available now but they certainly weren’t when I was growing up. The first time I had a genuine waffle was when I was 16 and travelled to the US for the first time. A family friend in Oregon made me waffles with maple syrup for breakfast – having been brought up on cornflakes, I’ve never forgotten it. Happy Easter Liz to you and all your family xx

  35. I am up early, in the motel, haven’t had breakfast, am facing my last bit of a 1,000-mile journey and your Post made me very, very hungry. I doubt if they are serving waffles today in the Breakfast Room of Grand Junction’s LaQuinta! I will see. And that second picture, Liz, wowsie. It doesn’t look like virtual but the real deal. I have owned and left behind one waffle iron from the 1950’s, a Mickey Mouse waffle maker and a Cinderella Stagecoach Waffle maker. I think I can beg one when I get home and see if I agree with Bill about this recipe. Nice Post.

  36. I haven’t had waffles in so long. Thank you for the inspiration, I’ve got to dig out my waffle maker. 🙂

  37. Oh Liz, your photos are always stunners and this week was no exception. The waffles are gorgeous. So happy to hear that Bill approved and enjoyed them – makes it even more fun. Happy, Happy Easter to you and yours ~

  38. It looks so beautiful and springy! DELISH!

  39. Hi Liz, happy Easter…. I’m not sure what Bisquick is, so excuse my ignorance, but your waffles look fabulous! Sorry I haven’t stopped by in a while, been sorting out my health issues (LPR) and also been travelling AND we have had family visiting from overseas. Happy Easter lovely. Pinned this one. xo

  40. The presentation is so pretty, Liz! Waffles are very popular in Singapore too; we’ve the cheaper ones that are going for just about $1.50 to the dearer ones at $10. I love mine with scoops of ice-creams! Yum!

  41. Bill is so funny! And yay, Liz for the fourth Dorie victory with your husband =)

    Thank you for the egg whites tip and the link to the NYT recipe. I’m a waffle making newbie, too so I appreciate the opportunity to replicate your splendid looking creations =)

  42. This breakfast looks so delicious, what I wouldn’t give for a bite 😀

    Happy Easter!

  43. Oh, your waffles are perfect. I made them once, they stuck so badly, I ended up mixing through ice creams with maple, haven’t gone back & tried again. I really must. 🙂
    Hope you’ve had a wonderful Easter. Happy week ahead. 🙂

  44. If there was a gold medal for waffles… I think your waffle just won one. 🙂 Now they look pretty perfect… score10 from this judge!

  45. My waffles never look as mouthwatering as these!

  46. You are on a roll, Liz! What beautiful waffles! I am not surprised that they got the Bill stamp of approval.

  47. yay! waffle success!!!! These def. look flawless!

  48. LOL! he would! maybe thats the key, Liz! Just leave a bunch of leftovers in the fridge for the next day and he’ll secretly eat them?? 🙂

  49. gosh i am going to try out this weekend
