The Best Waffle Recipe – Valentine’s Day Breakfast in Bed

Jump to Recipe

This is the only and best waffle recipe you need! Even beyond valentine’s day breakfast. However, I developed this recipe specifically for valentine’s day breakfast in bed and I think it is perfect!

This easy waffle recipe is quick, inexpensive and so pretty. I will admit that the color of the waffles is very intentional for the images.

The beetroot gives it subtle and light pink color mostly on the inside. But if you want to be extra like me use a little bit of food coloring.

Homemade Waffle FAQ:

  • How to keep the waffles warm? Preheat the oven to 200F and place a large plate in the middle. Store the waffles there covered with aluminum foil.
  • Can you freeze these easy waffles? Yes! Stack them in a ziplock bag or in an air tight container and pop them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • How do you reheat cold and frozen waffles? If cold, wrap in a paper towel and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. If frozen, pop in the toaster for a minute or two.

Valentine’s Day Breakfast in Bed Ideas:

I love Valentine’s day and honestly, I love making breakfast for my husband. He is more of a bacon and eggs sandwich kind of guy, but every once in a while he likes to be spoiled.

I like making shakshuka plates with bread or waffles on the side to dip with. These fluffy souffle pancakes are going to be a true labor of love that you can share with your loved one in the kitchen.
