How to evenly spread butter in each square of a waffle

butterwaffle

We made large Belgian-style waffles tonight and I found it incredibly difficult to evenly spread the butter in each square. In fact, it was so time consuming, by the time I was done, the waffle was barely hot 🙁

As a second attempt, I cut a tablespoon of butter into 16 tiny cubes and let each cube melt in the waffle butter receptacles. This was slightly more effective but it got butter all over my fingers in the process 🙁

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Melt the butter and brush it on with a pastry brush.
