1. Vanilla whipped cream & blackberries
Whip up your favourite go-to basic waffle batter and cook waffles in a waffle maker until crispy and golden brown. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat 1 cup whipped cream until soft peaks form. Add 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract and continue to whip until thick and glossy. Transfer waffles to a plate or platter, dollop with vanilla whipped cream and top with fresh blackberries and mango or peaches.
2. Espresso chocolate sauce & raspberries
If you're a chocolate lover, start off by stirring a little Dutch-process cocoa into your waffle batter. Then, once your waffles are all ready, top them with a drizzle (or a good squeeze) of good quality chocolate or fudge sauce and scatter with fresh raspberries or strawberries.
3. Prosciutto, avocado, sour cream & grated cheddar
Start off by adding a little grated cheddar and freshly chopped thyme leaves to your waffle batter. Then, once your waffles are set to go, top them with thin slices of salty prosciutto, avocado slices, a dollop of sour cream and more grated cheddar cheese. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
4. Cinnamon sugar, caramelized apples & vanilla ice cream
If apple pie is your thing, this is the recipe for you. Make a waffle batter with little hits of spice from ground cinnamon and nutmeg. In a small bowl, stir together 2 tbsp granulated sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon and set aside. Core and slice 2 apples into wedges. Melt a little butter in a large skillet, add apples and a sprinkle of sugar. Cook, tossing often, until apples are soft and caramelized, about 5 to 10 minutes. Once waffles are ready to go, top with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar, some caramelized apples and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Pure indulgence!!
5. Sliced bananas, salted peanuts & caramel sauce
As this variation is already quite rich, we recommend whipping up your go-to basic waffle batter. Once waffles are golden and ready, top with sliced banana (if you're looking for over-the-top-indulgence, try caramelizing them first), coarsely chopped salted peanuts and a drizzle of caramel sauce or dulce de leche.
