Homemade waffles are super easy to make and this recipe has minimal ingredients. A delicious way to treat your sweetie to a special breakfast. Turning the waffles red makes these fluffy waffles fun. The fresh strawberry sauce is tasty and a pretty topping. It would be yummy on ice cream or shortcake. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
