HONEY WAFFLES WITH BLACKBERRIES
When blackberries are in season and ripe, they can be almost as sweet as raspberries and much juicier! When they are at their perfect ripeness they are best eaten straight away, without turning them into a crumble or baking them in a cake.
If you’re lucky to live in the countryside or have a back garden with some blackberry bushes, go out and pick a few and serve them with some honey waffles – replacing sugar with honey makes them feel somewhat wholesome.
This recipe is really easy and quick to make but you do need a waffle maker/ waffle iron.
To make ca 6-8 waffles you’ll need:
- A waffle maker, I’m afraid
- Maple syrup (optional)
- 120g unsalted butter/baking spread
- 3 eggs
- 100g runny honey
- pinch of salt
- 1 vanilla bean
- 200g self-raising flour
- 150ml milk
Mix the butter, eggs, honey, salt and vanilla bean mark until creamy, best done with an electric whisk. If the mix starts to curdle, add a spoon full of flour.
Add the flour and milk and whisk until fully incorporated into a smooth dough.
Bake a ladle full at a time in the waffle maker, adjusting the baking time depending on your waffle maker and taste. I like mine a little cross on the outside.
Top with a handful of berries, drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!
