Brunch, the hipster holy bible of all Instagrammable meals. Now although the weekend serves best for us working class brunch loving foodies, as a freelancer I have the privilege to plan the occasional midweek brunch as well. Fabulous way to hangout with my (naturally other freelance of student 😉 ) friends. Hands down, my favorite thing to make when I’m having friends over: Belgian Waffles! A recipe is coming up, so keep reading! 🙂
I’m a total sucker for cool props when shooting my pictures. Food totally deserves to look sexy and some sexy crockery tends to make that happen. I was super excited last week when my box of (Cosy & Trendy) streetfood dishes by Cookinglife arrived! To show off my cool new bowls and plates, I invited over a fellow freelancer for a Midweek Belgian Waffles Brunch!
The coolest thing about the Cosy and Trendy Streetfood crockery is that they come in 10(!) different colours. Amazing for various dish presentations and much edgier than a conventional set of crockery. As for the Belgian waffles..well, I’m pretty sure you guys wanna taste them, so scroll down a tad more for the recipe!
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cups sugar
- 1,5 cups milk
- 1/2 cup sunflower oil
- 2 eggs
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- Maple syrup
- Powdered sugar
- Nutorious Peanut Butter with honey and cinnamon
- Pre-heat your waffle iron. Mix all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and sugar) in a bowl and set aside.
- Beat the eggs in another bowl and add milk, sunflower oil and vanilla extract.
- Mix (well) all wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.
- Spray some cooking spray onto your pre-heated waffle iron before pouring some of the mixture onto it.
- Bake away and enjoy your homemade waffles!
Oh and FYI:
In case you were wondering what the heck I served in the smaller bowl in that picture..well, something delicious! 😉 I chopped up some fresh strawberries and mixed them with the creamiest Greek yoghurt overnight. Then added some maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon for that extra kick. Great as an add-on to your waffle brunch or even as a nice, fresh side dish.
The waffles are topped with some icing sugar/maple syrup and a generous scoop of (honey & cinnamon flavored) Nutorious Peanutbutter. Check out their website for more information: www.nutorious.nl.
