Waffles

Waffles are a  classic brunch dish for me. Although I can eat one at any given point of time - lure me in with that whipped cream :) Well - I'll let the picture below talk for itself - what do you think?




These are light, crispy from the outside and spongy within type of waffles . It's like making your  very own version of dessert for breakfast, while you play around with a choice of toppings!! This waffle recipe has a twist of its own. The batter is infused with Chocolate Rose tea from Teabox and so is the whipped cream. Result - see for your self!!

I so wish you could smell the delightful aroma of chocolate, rose and maple sliding over like a smooth surfer and finally settling on that golden shore of  crisp delectable waffle - all homemade yo!!




 Aroma of this particular tea is so refreshing with every single sip it will surely transport you  all the way at a garden in Nilgiris . And how can one go wrong with Strawberries dunked in maple syrup and whipped cream? Oh this one is pure indulgence to me...ssssh  all dieters stay away!



P. S - If you do not have a waffle maker at home, simply drop a ladle of  batter onto a lightly greased, heated frying pan and fry until golden brown on both sides.

So here's what you need to make these brown beauties and I give you the choice to deck it all up - toppings I mean :).

INGREDIENTS :

150gms - All purpose flour
1 tsp - baking powder
1/2 tsp - baking soda
1 tbsp - Castor sugar
125 ml - butter milk
50ml - Chocolate Rose tea (optional)
1/2 tsp - Vanilla Essence
75g - butter melted
Maple Syrup, Whipped cream and Strawberries - to serve



PROCEDURE:

1. Heat some water in a vessel and let the tea leaves diffuse in it. Strain and set aside.


2. Sift the flour, baking powder and soda into a bowl. Stir in the sugar

3. Put the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, Teabox - chocolate & rose tea in a second bowl and whisk well, until all the ingredients are well blended.



4. Fold in the dry ingredients until you have a smooth batter.



5. Spoon a layer of the batter into a well heated waffle iron and spread flat. Cook for about 2 -3 minutes until crisp and golden.



6. Serve warm with a nice dollop of whipped cream, crumbled walnuts, chocolate sprinkles and strawberries. Finally drizzle in the maple syrup.




Tadah!! Treat yourself to some indulgence by trying out this recipe at home and I would love to hear your feedback in the comments section below :)



Sweet dreams!!
