Christmas Waffles are fluffy Belgium waffles from scratch topped with confectioners sugar, Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread, a homemade cranberry-raspberry syrup, sliced almonds and fresh fruit perfect for Christmas morning.
All families have their holiday traditions and on the search for new ways to celebrate. We like to celebrate Christmas morning in my home with an early morning wake up to open the gifts Santa had left under the tree, followed by a family pajama breakfast before heading out to see the extended family.
These homemade Christmas Waffles are the go-to for our morning pajama party! The kids help mix up the batter and enjoy putting whatever yummy toppings they want over the top. A mug of hot chocolate is a great pairing for a fantastic beginning to Christmas.
I found something new for this years Christmas Waffles! New Land O Lakes Soft Squeeze Spread is made with real butter in a convenient, easy to squeeze bottle for less mess and no crumbs. Plus, you can squeeze the deliciousness into every waffle groove effortlessly making our waffle morning a breeze.
Land O’ Lakes is a producer of dairy products that are made with simple, quality ingredients. I found my Land O Lakes Soft Squeeze Spread at Kroger in the refrigerator section with margarine.

Time to make some Christmas Waffles! And, no… you don’t need it to be Christmas to makes these. Christmas Waffles are great for any weekend brunch or have a prepared batter in the refrigerator to whip up some waffles before the kids head off to school during the week.
The trick to a deliciously fluffy Belgium waffle is how the egg is prepared in the batter. All the waffle ingredients will be mixed together in a large bowl- except the egg. You will separate the eggs to only use the whites. Then, beat the eggs using a hand mixer until they form a soft peak. A soft peak is achieved when the a curl is formed when the hand mixer is lifted out of the bowl. Those egg whites are then folded into the batter.
- 2¼ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder

- Land O Lakes Soft Squeeze Spread
- Begin with the cranberry-raspberry syrup (can be prepped the day before). In a saucepan, add the half cup cranberries, half cup raspberries, 1 cup water, half cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Whisk while bringing to a simmer and cover for 15 minutes.
- Let the sauce cool and then put through a mesh strainer. Store in fridge for up to 5 days.
- In a small mixing bowl, use a hand or stand mixer to beat 2 egg whites to a soft peak or until they are white and fluffy. Set to the side.
- In a large mixing bowl, add all other waffle ingredients: flour, baking powder, 3 Tablespoons confectioners sugar, salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, vegetable oil and milk. Whisk until blended.
- Fold in the egg whites.
- Read instructions of your Belgium waffle maker before you get started because each will have a slightly different cook time. Warm up the waffle maker and add ⅔ cup batter. Cook 3-4 minutes or as per your waffle makers instructions.
- Top with Land O Lakes Soft Squeeze Spread and anything else you please.
