The Best Brunch Waffles

 The Best Brunch Waffles are super quick to make and easy to make sweet or savoury with your choice of toppings. I love a bit of both!

Waffles are now my most favourite way to start the day! Whether I top them with healthy granola and yoghurt or fresh berries and cream or even go full out and enjoy the best brunch waffles were sweet and savoury come together to make something beautiful!

The Best Brunch Waffles Topping Ideas

There are so many ways you can top these brilliant waffles. You can go super healthy or super naughty and make it a sugar fest. Here are my top topping suggestions


Maple Syrup
Fresh Banana
Strawberries and cream
Hot mixed berries
Sprinkles (mostly for fun but still a valid choice)
Ice cream


Poached or Fried Eggs
Baked Beans
Make it a vessel for a full English breakfast? A few friends hated this idea but we did try it and it definitely worked.

The Best Brunch Waffles topped with bananas, bacon, ice cream and sprinkles
This photo has caused controversy. A few people really think it’s wrong to have all of these flavours together. I don’t. I loved it. Bacon and maple syrup taste great together, as does maple syrup and bananas, ice cream and bananas work too. Bacon, surprisingly me and my taste buds, also works really well together. The smoked bacon I used for this, with the vanilla ice cream gives you that sweet and salted flavour that can be so moreish.

The best breakfast waffles to me are topped with smoked bacon, authentic Cornish clotted cream ice cream, bananas and a drizzle of maple syrup, plus a few sprinkles because why not! So simple but a wonderful idea and truly delicious.
