I made these waffles for a stay at home, best friends brunch and it was a complete hit, so I am sharing the fall goodness with you! Here is the recipe so you can soak in the season and brunch with the best of them!
Ingredients and Equipment
- all-purpose flour 2 cups
- Baking Powder 2tsp
- butter milk 1/2 cup
- whole milk 1 cup
- unsalted butter 4tbs (melted, but not hot)
- eggs 2 ( separate the whites and yolks. Make sure they are room temperature)
- vanilla extract 1/2 tsp
- salt 1 tsp
- sugar 1/3 cup
- cinnamon 1/2 tsp
- ginger 1/8tsp
- cloves1/8 tsp
- allspice1/8 tsp
- nutmeg 1/8 tsp
- waffle maker
- mixer (upright or hand)
- hand whisk
Making the Waffles
Step 1: Make the Batter
- Plug in your waffle iron and let it heat while you prepare the batter.
- Whisk together 2 cups of flour, 2 tsp of baking powder, and 1tsp of salt in a large mixing bowl. Once evenly mixed, use your hands and push the mixture to the outer edges of the bowl, leaving a circular gap in the middle to pour your wet ingredients.
- Pour 1 cup of whole milk, 1/2 cup of butter milk, 4 tbs of melted butter, and two egg yolks into the center of your dry ingredient mixture. Using a hand whisk, whisk together ingredients until they are evenly mixed.
Step 2: Make the Meringue
- In a separate large, clean, mixing bowl, using an upright or hand mixer, whisk two room temperature egg whites until frothy (you should see bubbles and the mixture should just begin to turn white).
- Once frothy, gradually mix in 1/3 cup of sugar. Whisk on high until you create a meringue with soft peeks. This means that the egg whites should be the consistency of shaving cream!
- Make sure your bowl is big, your eggwhites are room temp, and all or your utensils are clean as can be or your meringue will not set up!
Step 3: Combine and Cook
- Add the meringue to the batter, and gently fold until you do not see any white in the mixture.
- Then add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/8 tsp of ginger, 1/8 tbs of cloves, 1/8 tsp of all spice, and 1/8 tsp of nutmeg.
- fold until spices are evenly distributed.
- Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and pour your batter in! Follow the cooking instructions for your specific waffle iron! and there you go!
And there you go! Wonderful, seasonal waffles to share (or not lol that’s on you!) Happy fall, and don’t forget to make Everydaylicious!

What do you do when you feel as if you cannot hold your emotions within you? When you are a cup, ill equipped to hold the volume of your feelings, and at any moment, it can all come spilling out creating a mess that would be more than a little inconvenient to clean? For me, the answer is I write it down. Since I was a child, I have loved to write, and very early on I realized that when I put my ideas into words, even if I was unclear when I started, by the time I finished, I would have more clarity than when I began. As an adult, I can add personal color to the widely accepted and research backed consensus that journaling can be life changing. When I post on my instagram story about my journal, I’ve had several people ask me how I journal and what I journal about. I am here to offer research, ideas, and resources for those who wish to know more and begin to journal.
Sunday Scaries is deeper than just deciding not to work on Sunday, or getting all your work done before you go home. That dread of going to work may mean that you are burned out. By focusing on improving your physical and emotional resources, you can begin to make steps to take not only your Sunday back, but also your life.
Thank you for reading, and I really hope this helps. I mean it when I say that being intentional about rest and fun has changed my perspective and outlook on life. I am hoping the same for you. You deserve to have joy and peace in your life. Until next time remember, mind, body, and then classroom. In that order.
