Red White and Blueberry Dessert Waffle Stacks – and the Sweet Secret to Crispy, Crunchy Waffles

Waffle Stacks

Waffle stacks – for dessert or breakfast? You decide!

A great way to start the day on the Fourth of July. But then again, a great way to END the day on the Fourth of July.

In the Pancakes vs. Waffles debate, I stand firmly on the side of waffles. I mean, C’mon, all that crispy goodness of the waffle surfaces,  just empty little squares waiting to be filled with butter and syrup. What’s better than that???

I have recently been making dessert waffles. There is one trick to making them with the perfect crispy crunch on the outside: sugar.  Yes, just plain old regular sugar. You just sprinkle a tiny bit on the surface of your waffle iron right before spooning in the batter and – my oh my! – this adds the perfect sweet crust! Trust me on this one and just try it! Turns waffles into sweet crispy desserts!
