Waffle day - what's your favourite waffle topping?

Tomorrow it's International Waffle Day and I'm planning on having a waffle feast with my friends! I love waffles, best pudding ever. Was curious to hear what your favourite or unique waffle toppings are, or if you've got any superior waffle recipes. Personally, I prefer thin, crispy waffles with heaps of maple syrup, or strawberries and whipped cream.

      kermit, when you say thinned out Nutella-what do you use to thin the spread?

      1. re: HillJ

        HillJ, I just use a very little bit of milk or cream (I guess you could say cream helps to thin out the crepes, and thicken the hips lol ;)). Hope this helps?

        1. re: kermit

          Thanks, kermit! That does help. I usual warm Nutella to thin it but sometimes that warm result isn't what I really want to do.

    2. There is nothing better to me than Butter & Syrup.....

      I do like vanilla ice cream on a waffle every so often..but B&S rules!

      1. Your question made me think of my new-found favorite blog:


        That being said, there is nothing like real maple syrup and real butter.

        My daughter started a new Easter tradition (actually, to make things easier for me, and to stop me from over-cooking for the holidays, hehe). We had a waffle brunch, and I'm going to do the same this year. Fresh fruit and meats on the side (for the carnivores), veggie-sausages (for the vegetarians), ice cream and anything else that might be good. Strawberries and whipped cream sound great - of course we'll have real maple syrup, too.
