I could do waffles all day long. There is something so wonderfully charming and hearty about them, don’t you think. Every time I make a batch of waffles it is guaranteed my family will pop out from wherever they hide their little selves and gather about. Waffles=family ❀️. It’s a recipe for success every time. These Jiffy cornbread waffles couldn’t be easier and perfect for Saturday mornings!

These waffles are a bit on the non-traditional side in a great way. Because I make waffles so often, and they are full of carbs and sugar, I try to whip up different versions with a little more gumption to them whenever I can. Recipes with extra nutrition, less sugar, or waffles that act as bases for healthier fruit toppings are my faves.

These cornbread waffles are great with add in’s like corn, chives, blackberries, honey, and all SORTS of things. Try something fun!

Is this the time where I risk sounding strange and admit that I really, really like the mess that waffle making makes? I do. And I make a mess! Somehow I always end up with batter out of the iron and onto the counter around it. Every time. I even grin a bit when it squishes out of the sides and drips onto the counter.

These waffles are not sweet at all. You could add a bit more sugar, if you like. Why though? These waffles are perfect for a topping of sweet fruit, honey, or real maple syrup. The texture and heartiness of the cornbread waffles is a perfect pairing with sweet topping and whipped cream. It’s heaven.

Or, real maple syrup.

Which is what this was. Real maple syrup made by Nate. So good!

I sure hope you find time this week to pull out the waffle iron, grab a family member and cup of coffee, and watch batter squish out of the sides together. When you do, smile a bit in your heart thinking of me.

      Oh thank goodness for telling me about that! This is updated from a recipe that included blackberry whiskey sauce and I didn’t get a note deleted from that recipe. Yikes. Glad you caught that. Thanks!
