Nothing is Better than Freshly Baked Waffles! Let’s Make Waffles!

  • 3 min read

Do you like waffles?

Waffles have been loved and popular in Europe, especially in Belgium since ancient times. So are they in Japan – especially among teens or women.

However, do you know that waffles taste best when freshly baked?

The surface is crispy and the sugar smells savory, which is a very tempting smell. You cannot have this crispness in pre-made waffles. Once you experience its supreme taste, you can never eat normal waffles again.

Today we are going to introduce a homemade waffle recipe.
