Waffles! Waffles! Waffles! Our favourite waffle makers from @BrevilleCanada

I’ve got some amazing waffle recipes for you!  I’ve discovered a fabulous vintage cookbook that has the best waffles I’ve made and I hope you’ll enjoy them too.  I’ve recently had the pleasure to review two types of waffles makers from Breville Canada. The first one I adore for big groups or when we have friends when family visits over for brunch.  It’s the Smart Waffle 4 piece.  Easy to clean up, 5 settings to choose from which are: Classic. Belgium, Chocolate, Buttermilk and Custom.

With this, I made a kid classic.  Banana Walnut Waffles and served my kiddo’s freshly squeezed orange juice blended with banana.  A nice weekend treat.
 
Banana Nut Waffles:
1 1/2 cups of regular all-purpose flour(sift before measuring)
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tbsp of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 finely chopped walnuts
1 tsp of grated orange peel
2 eggs separated
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk
1/4 salad oil ( I just use grapeseed oil)
1/2 cup of mashed ripe banana’s
 

Sift flour again and with baking powder, sugar, salt and soda into a bowl.  Stir in nuts and orange peel.  Beat egg yolks with buttermilk, oil, and mashed bananas: blend with dry ingredients.  Whip egg whites until they hold peaks, and fold them into the batter.  Bake on preheated waffle griddle until medium brown.  Serve topped with sliced bananas, melted butter and syrup.

Thinking of a more savoury dinner type of waffle to use with the Smart Waffle 4 piece waffle maker?
Try this!

Sour Cream Waffles with Shrimp and Mushrooms
1 1/2 cups of regular all-purpose flour(sift before measuring)
1 tsp of baking powder
3/4 tsp of baking soda
3/4 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of caraway seed
2 eggs (beaten)
1 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of salad oil (I use grapeseed)
Sift flour again with baking powder, soda and salt.  Add the caraway seed.  Mix beaten eggs, sour cream, milk and salad oil.  Blend with dry ingredients until mixed.  Bake in your waffle maker on a lower setting.  Keep warm in the oven before serving at 200F.
 
Shrimp-Mushroom topping
1/2 pound of mushrooms, minced
2 tbsp of fresh minced parsley
4 tbsp of melted butter
1 tsp of caraway seed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 pd of cooked medium shrimp
1 cup of sour cream
2 tbsp of sherry (optional)

Saute mushrooms and parsley in butter until mushrooms are cooked.  Sprinkle caraway seed and salt.  Stir in shrimp. Heat through.  Stir in sour cream(and sherry if desired) and heat until just heated through.  Serve on top of waffles.

I love this little waffle maker.  It doesn’t take up too much room and it’s perfect for little hands to grab thanks to the size of the triangular waffles.  I use this the most and the settings are great for that perfect waffle.  It’s called The No Mess Waffle maker and I sure hope Santa will have one under the tree for you!  Priced at $199.99.

If you’re looking for a wonderful Christmas morning waffle to make let me tell you about the Gingerbread Waffle pictured above.  Your home will smell heavenly!  Poached sweetened apples or applesauce makes a nice accompaniment.
 
Gingerbread Waffles
1/4 cup of butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup light molasses
2 eggs separated
1 cup of milk
2 cups of regular flour (sift before measuring)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp of salt
Cream together the butter and brown sugar.  Beat in the molasses and egg yolks and milk.  Sift flour again with baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt.  Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Stir in dry ingredients into creamed mixture then fold the beaten egg whites.  Pour batter into the waffle maker and set to your preference.
 
Lemon Custard Sauce:
Using an electric mixer beat 3 eggs with 1 cup of sugar until thick and pale yellow.  Beat in 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of grated lemon peel, dash of salt and 2 tablespoons of butter.
Pour into top of double boiler and cook, stirring over simmering water about 15 minutes until mixture is slightly thickened and coats a spoon.  Serve warm or cooled.
Ginger Cream:
Whip 1 cup of heavy cream with 2 teaspoons of sugar; fold in 2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger.
 
Never buy frozen again with this recipe!

If you’d like to skip buying prepared waffles you can make your own with this recipe.  I just pop them in the toaster.  Super easy, super yummy and great for a quick breakfast.

Rich Waffles
1 1/2 cups of regular all-purpose flour(sift before measuring)
3 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp sugar
3 eggs separated
1 cup of light cream (I used 18%!)
1/4 cup melted butter
 
Sift flour again with baking powder, salt and sugar.  Beat egg yolks with cream and melted butter. Mix into dry ingredients.  Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry and fold them in.  Bake in your waffle maker.  
 
Serve with Honey Butter
Beat 1/2 cup of butter until creamy and gradually beat in 1/4 cup honey. Spoon into a bowl.

So these are my favourite waffle recipes.  I think you’ll enjoy them all and with Christmas around the corner, I hope you’ll make the Gingerbread waffle.  Kids love them.  This post was written in collaboration with Breville Canada.  All opinions are always my own.

    I’d love to see you feature a Café Venezia Espresso or any of the espresso makers. It’s so hard to make an informed decision on purchasing an espresso maker as there are so many to choose from with so many different features
