If you’re someone who hosts family or friends overnight at your house, then you will love making Blackberry Belgian Waffles as a crowd-pleasing breakfast option. I was so impressed with a friend’s beautiful breakfast plate during our last stay, I insisted we make them again.
The deep pockets of warm waffle are just the vessels you need to hold melted butter, warm maple syrup, and a few extra blackberries. Set out the prepared waffle mix, a choice of fruits and toppings, and let your guests make their own breakfast-hotel style!
Tip: Don’t overfill the waffle maker like I did and create a countertop mess. Yikes!
Serves 8 waffles
Homemade, easy to prepare waffles are a crowd-pleasing breakfast option when hosting overnight house guests. Use your imagination when setting out topping choices.

- Waffle Mix:
- 2 eggs
- 2 c. all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 c. milk
- 2 T. white sugar
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 c. mashed blackberries
- 1/4 c. maple syrup
- whole black berries
- Whisk together the eggs in a large bowl. Add remaining waffle mix ingredients until slightly lumpy.
- Allow the mix to sit in the bowl for five minutes prior to pouring it into a heated waffle iron.
- Use a measuring cup to scoop the mix and drizzle it evenly on to the waffle iron.
- (It will help to use a wooden spoon to spread the mix into the corners so that the waffles come out evenly shaped.)
- Shut the lid and let the waffles form for about 7 minutes until golden brown. (Appliances vary so take a peak to see if your waffles are finished.)
- Remove waffles from the waffle iron and immediately plate and serve with warmed maple syrup and whole blackberries.
You can substitute any other type of fruit for blackberries. A great tip, when serving guests, is to set out a waffle toppings bar including whipped cream, Nutella, coconut, peanut butter, jam, or sprinkles.
