I was craving waffles yesterday and so I decided that I would make us some for our breakfast today. (Saturday as I write this.) But not just any waffles . . . Toasted Almond Waffles!
All winter long I wait for the summer months for good light, but for some reason I am not getting it. Grrr . . . sorry that these photos are so poor, lightwise.
These waffles are great, using both flour and ground almonds in the batter . . . and not a lot of sugar, only a minimal amount . . .
More almond flavour comes from the use of almond extract. The ground almonds make these nice and crisp edged . . .
I love the wholesome texture that the ground almonds give as well . . . and of course there is even more almond flavour from a sprinkle of toasted almonds scattered over the top.
I enjoy mine with a dusting of icing sugar, and some fresh raspberries . . . so good . . .
Peaches are also nice . . . or blueberries . . . or a mix . . .
They're just really, really good . . . full stop . . . Todd of course enjoys his with lashings of syrup, maple syrup, but you can also make a raspberry syrup to enjoy with them if you wish. I did not have enough raspberries to make it today, but you can find the recipe here. It's good for all sorts. I like it on ice cream.
