Since the sweet waffle recipe is so "basic", you can feel free to go crazy with the garnishes and toppings 😉 . For example, serving them with whipped cream, in addition perhaps chocolate sauce and chocolate shavings, alternatively my homemade Nutella, or even a good portion of caramel cream or custard. Of course, the combo with ice cream is not to be underestimated… If you like it fresher and lighter, you can serve cherries, fruit compote or red fruit jelly with the classic waffles.
