Mickey Mouse Tradition

I grew up with a ton of traditions. I mean at the time they aren’t traditions, but then I look back and they are some great memories! My grandma use to have this Mickey Mouse waffle maker and all of us grandkids loved it! Grandma would make us mickey mouse waffles, how special is that?!

Now that my son, Trent, is here I want to give him these little memories like I had! Of course, when his first birthday was coming around the corner, this mickey mouse waffle maker popped in my head, especially since my grandma was flying out for his first birthday party. I thought it surely isn’t made anymore! But I was wrong! The same exact waffle maker is still being made! If your kids love mickey this waffle maker is a must to own! Not only does it make cute waffles of mickey, but it cooks the waffles perfectly!

Trent’s first birthday party morning, my grandma and I spent making and eating Mickey mouse waffles together, this time with my boy there too! While he wasn’t the biggest fan, my little health nut baby, I bet he will be as the years go on! My husband and I tried again on his actual birthday morning and he LOVED it, probably because the waffles had blueberries this time, but still!

Share your favorite birthday traditions or memories with your grandparents!

Plus, if you are in need of a good recipe to use with the mickey waffle maker, I fell in love with Joanna Gaines’ The Best-Ever Fluffy Pancakes batter in her new cookbook! Get it Here: Magnolia Table


The Best-Ever Fluffy Pancakes

Joanna Gaines

What you need:

2 Cups Flour

1/4 Cup Sugar

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder

2 Teaspoons Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Salt

2 Cups Buttermilk

10 Tablespoons melted unsalted butter

2 large eggs

**Tip for Mickey Mouse waffles- I cut this recipe in half and it gave about 3-4 Mickey waffles.


What to do: 

1.) In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt with a whisk. Set aside.

2.) In a medium bowl, whisk the wet ingredients- buttermilk, butter, eggs.

3.) Add wet mix to the dry mix, mix till combined. Let stand at least 15 minutes or longer. It will get super fluffy!

4.) Heat your waffle maker, or you can make pancakes. ** For mickey waffles add about a 1/4 cup to the main part and a scoop full to each ear and close waffle maker, give about 3 minutes and check.

5.) Add mixture, and cook till golden.

6.) Serving options butter, maple syrup, powdered sugar, strawberries, etc!

*we love blueberries in our batter!
