Puff Pastry Waffle Recipe
Okay, enough facts, let’s get down to business. These waffles could not be easier. You’ll want to make sure your puff pastry to thaw out just a little bit for maybe 20-30 minutes before you get to waffling. (Is that a technical term?)
Now is the good part – the toppings! I’m just a tiny drop of maple syrup and Irish butter. I’m talking good maple syrup – the kind you have to actually put in the refrigerator after opening. Sometimes, I add a few blueberries and strawberries and that’s breakfast, brunch or even a snack!
The easiest waffles you'll make this week! This one ingredient puff pastry waffle is light and a unique spin on your favorite breakfast treat. Served with maple syrup, fruit, or nut butter, these are sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
- Premade Pastry puff Dough
- Powdered Sugar (optional)
- Berries (optional
Remove pastry puff dough from package and allow to thaw for 20-30 minutes.
Unfold dough and cut into 9 squares. (Cutting in 3 rows, and then 3 columns.)Place one square into each waffle reservoir of a pre-warmed waffle maker.
Allow to cook though until each pastry puff square is golden and dough no longer looks raw. (about 5minutes)Remove cooked waffles from waffle maker and repeat until all pasty puff squares are cooked.Serve warm with powdered sugar and fresh berries.
These waffles are crispy, light, and airy, almost like a freshly made churro! Top with powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar combo, or maple syrup for a delicious treat or breakfast.
These are also great to make in batches and pop in the freezers. I recommend freezing in a plastic bag, and popping them in the toaster oven for an even quicker morning.
Although I did thaw the dough for these ones, I’ve made these before with the dough being frozen and it still worked great!
Try these waffles for your next breakfast or brunch and they are sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
