Yep, this is pretty much everything you want to avoid if you’re striving to follow a keto regimen. But every now and then, you’ve got to say WTF! and give yourself a reward day (not a cheat day; that’s the wrong psychology).
This. Is. It.
Waffles the way they were meant to be. Waffles with the light texture of a fresh-fried donut. Loaded with sugar, carbs, gluten and—if you’re good to yourself—enough fat to remind your body there’s still hope. These aren’t mix & cook. There is a detailed recipe based on a centuries-old French formulation (request in the comments), it takes time & specific ingredients, and it rewards precision. It also helps to have a true waffle iron with heavy plates. Small squares or Belgian style both work, but the latter have some extra visual appeal.
Want to try a full-on coma? Top one with salted caramel gelato. Your heirs will thank me.
