Weekends to me are for leisurely breakfast with a pot of coffee. English breakfast and pancakes are my absolute favourites, followed by waffles. To be honest, I love waffles equally but finding a decent place in the neighbourhood which serves healthy and low-calorie waffles is far more challenging than I thought. On top of all the calories you seem to pile on and money you spend, hardly any place seem to get the texture even remotely right so there goes my weekend mojo and moolah. Ha! So one fine day, husband decided to surprise me with a waffle maker. Ta-da! Problem solved (We own this model but it’s out-of-stock on Amazon at the moment, for other options see ‘shop the recipe’ section below the recipe section).
Bazillion waffle combinations here I come! Breakfast, meal or dessert; using whole wheat, oats or sorghum flour; topped with fried/pached eggs, cheese, mango, berries, Nutella, maple syrup or ice cream; well you get the idea. ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES! It’s truly such a versatile piece of equipment you could invest into, to up the delicious quotient of your weekend brunch situation.
Just like all the recipes on this blog, this recipe could not have been simpler. Definitely groggy eyes and child friendly. Addition of brown butter is an extra step but lends such a great depth of flavour and your kitchen will smell fantastic. And if you don’t want to do the extra step to brown the butter (if that’s even possible!), replace it with a healthier substitute – extra virgin coconut oil. All other ingredients are usual pantry staples. These waffles have crispy exterior and soft interior, just how perfect waffles should be. So what are you waiting for?
Go on and have a lovely weekend. ✨
