As usual, I saved my best recipe for last. These waffles look impressive but are a cinch to put together. They begin with Bisquick plus some eggs and oil. Simple so far, right? Now this is where the secret ingredient comes in that makes this waffles so light and fluffy on the inside, but crisp on the outside – club soda. Yes, that is right, club soda. Don’t be alarmed when the batter looks thin, it works, trust me.
You also are going to mix some crushed pineapple into the batter to help it get that tutti frutti name. You end up with little pockets of sweet and frutti goodness. Top these waffles off with some sliced bananas and diced strawberries and a drizzle of syrup. You don’t need much syrup due to all the sweet fruit. Finally, add a dollop of sweetened whipped cream to top these babies off.
These waffles are so light and refreshing, not heavy at all on your stomach. The fruit really is the star and focus of this dish and is the perfect way to start a beautiful spring morning!
