MONKEY BREAD WAFFLES

I remember as a little girl helping my mom prepare for Christmas morning. I would help her make the rolls and get the pan ready for our traditional breakfast. Once we woke up we had to wait for my parents to get dressed and my mom would put breakfast in the oven so it would be ready after all the excitement of Santa was over. We ALWAYS had warm monkey bread after opening gifts and this gooey, tasty treat always takes me back to those cozy Christmas mornings.

Now that I am a mom it is time for my little family to make our own traditions. I knew I wanted to continue the tradition of monkey bread on Christmas morning, but with our own little twist. My family LOVES waffles. We have breakfast for dinner at least once a week, and waffles are our favorite choice. I decided to combine these family favorites into one delicious breakfast treat, perfect for Christmas Morning.

Have you ever had monkey bread? Your family might call it something different, but it is basically rolls with sticky butterscotch and walnut topping. For these waffles, I made the topping into more of a syrup. This is where you will start. This rich butterscotch sauce is super easy to make and really makes these waffles unique and delicious.

HOW TO MAKE MONKEY BREAD WAFFLES:

1.5 cups of water

1/2 cup of butter

3/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1- 3.4 oz package of Butterscotch instant pudding (not the sugar-free kind)

1 tsp of cinnamon

 

Heat all your ingredients in a saucepan. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and let the sauce thicken. Serve warm. (Seriously, it’s that simple!)

Now make your waffles. I swear by my Croquade Waffle Maker from Sur La Table. We used the Belgian Waffle Plate, I love that I can change the plates out to make stuffed waffles, panini sandwiches, heart-shaped waffles, or even waffle cones. But the best feature, by far, is that the plates can be removed completely for easy cleaning. No more wiping down the cooking surface with a damp rag, you can really get these babies clean!

Where was I? Oh yes, cook your waffles however you would like. We used Vanilla Liege Waffle Dough that you can find here. Any favorite waffle recipe will work, but these Liege waffles with Belgian pearl sugar really take the recipe up a level with their extra sweetness. If you have never had Liege waffles before, you have to try these. The pearl sugar leaves little-caramelized bits of crunchy sweetness throughout the dough that is to die for!

Top waffles with warm butterscotch syrup, whip cream, and walnuts.

They taste best in your pajamas, surrounded with the ones you love most. Trust me.

We don't really have a tradition except for ensuring we have a cake to sing Happy Birthday Jesus with. This year we went simple and did an Italian sweet bread, eggs and our cake :)

PS Your waffles look delish!
