It’s National Waffle Day, which means it’s your duty as an American to make waffles. Here, nine waffle recipes that go beyond basic Belgian and buttermilk.

1. Almond Waffles 
Finely ground roasted almonds add terrific flavor.

2. Cornmeal-and-Ricotta Waffles 
Cornmeal makes these waffles crispy; ricotta keeps them moist.

3. Yeasty Waffles 
Made with yeast instead of baking powder, these waffles are rich and sweet.

4. Pumpernickel Waffles 
The secret to these chewy waffles? Mashed potatoes in the batter.

5. Banana Waffles with Pecans 
A lot of butter in the batter makes these waffles extra crisp.

6. Carrot Cake Waffles 
The perfect topping for these fluffy, surprisingly gluten-free waffles is cream cheese whipped cream.

7. Gluten-Free Waffles Rancheros 
Masa harina, a flour made from corn, is added to these waffles to give them a sweet, grainy flavor.

8. Cocoa-Pepper Waffle Cookies 
Breakfast meets cookies in these chocolaty waffles.

9. “Rye”-Raisin Belgian Waffle Bread 
There’s no actual rye in these waffles. The rye-like flavor comes from caraway seeds.
