Sleepover Waffles

Ally's Mom here! Trying out something new at Cooking With Ally! Initially the blog was to focus on Ally taking the lead on the cooking and her followers were cooking along with her. School and extra-curricular activities have demanded more of her time, leaving less time for her to devote to the blog, Therefore, I am going to take over the blog and re-position it as ME cooking WITH Ally. With that said, Ally's away at camp right now so for my first post, I was on my own!

I am sharing with you my "Sleepover Waffles". I make these frequently when the girls have friends sleep over. They're simple to make, just a few extra steps from using a mix, but taste so much better. The addition of browned butter is what really takes them over the top.

I like to serve them buffet style: in quarters with an array of toppings (chocolate chips, strawberries, syrup, whipped cream). You really could go nuts (literally) here. Be creative!

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Sleepover Waffles (inspired by The Gourmet Gourmand)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ¾ cups milk
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)  
  1. Preheat your waffle maker.
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt. Whisk well to mix.
  3. In a separate bowl combine eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk thoroughly to combine.
  4. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Swirl intermittently. Watch carefully and as soon as butter browns and smells nutty, remove from heat and pour into a separate bowl to cool briefly.
  5. Pour egg-milk mixture into dry ingredients and whisk well to combine.
  6. Drizzle warm brown butter into dry ingredients and whisk until completely incorporated.
  7. Using a ladle or measuring cup, pour about 1 cup of batter into your waffle maker. Flip and cook per waffle maker instructions.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. Makes 5-6 waffles.

  1. Pretty cool, I make an overnight waffle mix too -- but of course sourdough based. Amazingly bubbly in the morning, so you add some baking powder and get really fluffy cakes. But, I am really interested in your butter browning thing. NEVER tried that, and there is a lot of butter in my mix, so it would be a perfect signature to add! Thanks!
