Naptime Notes

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

The key to this recipe is a malt powder. If you don’t add it your mix may seem a little bland and basic. But, no matter how you make it, be sure to have fun dressing up the waffles once their made. My favorite toppings are sliced fruits, maple syrup, fruit syrup and sweet cheeses like ricotta or mascarpone.

Naptime Stopwatch

Make the pancake mix takes all of 5 minutes! Making the batter and enjoying the pancakes takes about another 10 minutes.
