A little backstory about me was I had a weird obsession with waffle makers. It could have been rooted back to our beloved family vacations we took while growing up, the ones where the hotels would have a "make your own waffle" station for their complimentary breakfast. Granted, I couldn't use it due to cross-contamination, but would happily watch my sister and dad make their waffles.

This led to years later, my dad purchasing a waffle maker for the house. In celebration, my dad declared midnights on Saturday to be waffle ice cream sundae time. We would force ourselves to stay up late and then gather in the kitchen to pig out on dairy-free waffles topped with ice cream (dairy-free ice cream, of course). This was short-lived but was such a fond memory.

This is probably why one of the first things Joe and I added to our wedding registry was a waffle maker. Now we make our own tasty memories with one of our very own and use this batter recipe that is safe for me to eat! Granted, we now only have waffles for breakfast or dinner, but for old-time sakes, may have to plan a midnight waffle party soon.

The best thing about this batter is you can also use it to make pancakes!
