  • When selecting butter for this recipe, use a high-quality butter for best results.
  • Be sure to use fresh orange zest for the best flavor.

  • For a healthier option, use coconut oil instead of butter and almond milk instead of cow's milk. This substitution will provide a lower fat and cholesterol content while still providing a delicious flavor.
  • For a gluten-free option, use a gluten-free flour blend instead of all-purpose flour and use gluten-free baking powder. This substitution will make the waffles suitable for those with gluten sensitivities or allergies, while still providing a light and fluffy texture.

Coconut Waffles Replace the orange zest with 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut. Replace the butter with 6 tablespoons of coconut oil. Replace the milk with 2 cups of coconut milk.

Vanilla Ice Cream: Vanilla ice cream is the perfect accompaniment to Orange Waffles, providing a creamy contrast to the zesty orange flavor. The sweetness of the ice cream will also help to balance out the tartness of the orange syrup.

Whipped Cream: Whipped cream is a perfect accompaniment to Orange Waffles, providing a light and airy topping to the waffles. The sweetness of the whipped cream will add a bit of extra sweetness to the waffles, and its creamy texture will help to balance out the tartness of the orange syrup.


Q: What is the best way to melt butter?
