Salted Caramel Popcorn Waffles

When it comes to breakfast, people either tend to favor pancakes or waffles. Of course it’s possible to love both and we certainly do. So it just depends what mood we’re in. And today we are 100% in a waffle kind of mood. Furthermore, we’re in a salted caramel popcorn waffles mood because it’s our new combination obsession.

Waffles are made from a leavened dough, usually using baking powder for the rise, and then cooked between two hot metal plates that have surface indentations. That gives the waffles their characteristic pattern and all the nooks where delicious maple syrup can pool.

You can buy frozen waffles, of course, and just heat them up in a toaster or oven. But we don’t think the taste holds up to homemade. Fortunately, waffle irons are not expensive and many are small so they don’t take up valuable space in a small kitchen. The batter itself is very easy to make and you don’t even need an electric mixer. Just a whisk and a little elbow grease is all that’s needed. In fact, the waffles come out better when the batter is still a bit lumpy so hand whisking is ideal.

We tweaked a few different waffle recipes to come up with one that is thick but still fluffy and tender. We absolutely insist that all waffles need some kind of sauce because that’s the whole point of their shape. We wanted salted caramel vibes for this recipe so caramel sauce instead of maple syrup is definitely an option. We also tried mixing the two sauces and really liked that too. And, of course, everything needs a crunch so we topped our waffles with freshly popped popcorn and then sprinkled on some sweet and salty caramel popcorn seasoning.

Do you absolutely need a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top? Technically no but, also yes. We think you do.
