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…
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!
