This isn’t your traditional cereal & milk. Oh no, it’s much much better. Cereal IN the waffles, top with a sweet, milk glaze.
I mean, this is probably the best cereal & milk ever.
I used Fruit Loops, and I got that ‘funfetti’ look.
Pulverized Fruit Loops = cereal sprinkles. I think you could use Fruity Pebbles too, but Fruit Loops come in the individual containers, which is so perfect.
This Fruit Loop Waffles with Milk Glaze are a little bit sweet, a little bit fruity, and a lot delicious!

WHY MAKE WAFFLES AT HOME?
Waffles are the weekend breakfast superheroes! Nothing beats waking up on a Saturday morning and stumbling out of bed to a plate of freshly made waffles drizzled with real maple syrup.
Of course, I’m usually the one who makes the waffles so that the rest of my family can enjoy them, but you know what? It’s well worth it.
If it means I get to eat homemade waffles as a reward, I’ll gladly man the waffle iron.
Have you ever made homemade waffles before? I’m here to assist!
- Waffle squares were designed to collect pools of maple syrup and butter.
- These waffles are also delicious with fresh fruit and whipped cream!
- Berry Syrup goes well with homemade waffles.
- If you haven’t tried my homemade buttermilk syrup yet, DO IT; it’s only 5 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to make, and you’ll love the rich flavor!
- Oh, and don’t forget about the dessert waffles. A scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top of a warm waffle almost makes me dizzy. (Neither my children nor I have any complaints about them.
HOW TO KEEP WAFFLES WARM?
- Preheat the oven to “warm.” Preheat your oven to “warm” or the lowest setting available to keep the waffles warm while you make more for your family. Place the waffles directly on the oven rack.
- When you remove the waffles from the waffle iron, place them directly on the rack. The waffles will remain crispy and warm until you’re ready to eat them!
On the weekend, make a large batch of homemade waffles and store any leftovers in the freezer. Then you’ll have convenient toaster waffles for weekday breakfasts that taste just like homemade!
To freeze waffles:
- Allow all of the waffles to cool completely.
- To prevent sticking, place a sheet of wax paper between the layers of waffle in freezer bags. Keep the frozen vegetables in the freezer until ready to use.
Reheat frozen waffles as follows:
- Heat each waffle individually in a toaster or toaster oven until cooked through.
- You can also reheat frozen waffles in an oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. To keep the waffles from drying out as they heat, cover them loosely with foil.
TIPS AND TRICKS:
Waffles aren’t difficult to make, and this recipe is always a hit. Here are some additional tips I’ve gathered over the years to assist you in making the best waffles possible:
- A good waffle iron is required in addition to a good waffle recipe! My Dash Waffle Iron is fantastic. It’s inexpensive, simple to use and clean, and consistently produces golden brown waffles.
- The waffles take about 3 minutes to cook through in my Dash waffle iron. Yours may take a little less or a little more time. If you’re new to making waffles, it may take some trial and error to get to know your waffle iron!
- Warm waffles by placing them on a baking pan in the oven on the “warm” setting until ready to serve.
- Are you looking for gluten-free or low-carb options? Chaffles can be made with the Dash waffle maker. No carbs cheesy buns!

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do my waffles stick to the waffle iron?
Make sure your waffle iron is hot enough before adding the batter. An iron that’s too cool won’t cook the inside of the waffle thoroughly making it more likely for the waffle to split and stick to the pan.
What if I don’t have cooking spray?
Substitute a very thin layer of butter or vegetable oil on the waffle iron. The key here is thin! Too much oil or butter will make the waffles greasy.
Can I use homemade pancake batter?
Waffles have a higher percentage of sugar and fat in the batter, which results in the crispy edges. I wouldn’t substitute one for the other.
What is the difference between a waffle and a Belgian waffle?
The texture is also lighter and crispier. To make a Belgian waffle, you need a waffle iron with a deeper, larger grid pattern. Most Belgian waffle recipes are yeast-based, to get that crispy texture. But you also can use a waffle batter that uses beaten egg whites for lightness like this one
