Homemade Waffles with Strawberries & Whip Cream

Since it’s Memorial Day Weekend, and a perfect time for breakfasts that are a little more on the special side, I thought I would share this recipe from my friend Karen. You can even add blueberries on top to make it red white and blue and a bit more patriotic. 😉

Many of you know Karen as a moderator on the TotallyTarget Forum, and she also does a tremendous job of helping me with my giveaways and other things around here on TT. But Karen is also a fabulous cook and I have managed to talk her into sharing one of her recipes & I hope there will be more to come. 

Keep in mind if you are short on time, you could substitute with a boxed waffle mix and still use fresh fruit and fresh whipped cream to still make a delicious dish- but here is her recipe from scratch…

  • 2 cups Cake Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups milk

Directions: Preheat waffle iron. Sift together flour, salt & baking powder in a bowl and set aside. In second bowl mix together egg yolks and sugar until yolks turn pale yellow and sugar is dissolved. Add vanilla, butter, and milk & combine. Whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture just until combined (do not over-mix). In a 3rd bowl beat egg whites with mixer until soft peaks form and then gently fold egg whites into batter with a rubber spatula. It’s important not to over-mix.

Coat the waffle iron with cooking spray and cook waffles until golden brown. Top with fresh made whipping cream (just whip 1 cup heavy whipping cream with 1 tablespoon sugar until it gets to the right consistency) and then pile on fresh strawberries and/or blueberries.

– Thanks so much for sharing Karen!

  1. We had homemade waffles with smashed strawberries on top for breakfast this morning. I think our waffle maker Christmas present was one of the best things we got! My 21 month old can eat a whole waffle, which says how delicious they are! My recipe was almost the same as yours 🙂

  2. Great timing with this recipe as I have this on our dinner plan for this week. I’m going to cut out the whip cream and replace it with a little homemade strawberry syrup to go with the fresh berries. I’ll definitely be using the waffle recipe.
