Orange Waffles

These delicious orange flavored waffles made with orange juice and oil are sure to impress your brunch guests. At the same time the recipe is easy enough to serve your family anytime. I make these in big batches and freeze them for delicious breakfasts throughout the week.

Once you start making your own waffles, you won’t go back to the frozen stuff from the grocery store. The key is to invest in a good waffle iron. I started out with a $9 one from a local super store and couldn’t figure out why no matter what I did my waffles didn’t turn out crispy. It finally dawned on me that the waffle maker was to blame. I know have this Belgian Waffle Baker and have crispy golden waffles every time. Well worth spending $30 on.
