Waffles with White Sauce

My heritage is Norwegian on my Mom's side and German Mennonite on my Dad's side so my food loves can be a little mixed up. At Christmastime we usually have special foods from both. Lefse for the Norwegian in us and Peppernuts for the German Mennonite.

When we have waffles, my German Mennonite heritage insists that we have White Sauce to go on top. My kids love it, Hubby doesn't. It is kind of like a thin homemade vanilla pudding that is poured over the top of your waffles. Yum!!!

White Sauce for Waffles:

2 Cups Milk
1/3 c. sugar
2 T cornstarch mixed with a little water or milk to make a slurry
1 tsp. vanilla (unless its Monday morning, then you might need a little more☺)
dash of salt.

Bring milk, sugar, salt to boil. Whisk in cornstarch slurry until thickened. Take off heat and add vanilla. Serve over waffles.


  1. How did you know I had been looking for this recipe? My dad is also of Norweigan descent and use to make this every Saturday morning for breakfast, but of course when I was younger I never cared about the recipe.

  2. Stephanie-
    I'm so glad I could help you find this recipe!!!

  3. This looks good! I like any variation on the waffle! :)


LOVE hearing from you
