Basic waffles

What is the perfect Sunday breakfast for you? For me it is always crispy waffles or fluffy pancakes, or thin crepes. Lots of fruits, homemade sweet preserves and maple syrup or honey! And good coffee of course 🙂

It is Summer time, not my favorite season by the way. However, I enjoy some moments at this time of the year. Such as picking seasonal berries on the local farms, making preserves and jams, delicious tomatoes which I’m still waiting for!

This weekend I went to the local farm to pick up some cherries and red currants, yay! I was so excited about it because the season is really short and I didn’t want to miss it! Aw, do you see that little green berries that are called gooseberries? These are one of my favorite berries from the childhood and haven’t had eating them for about 15 years! That’s a very long time. And I finally found them here but I could only grab some berries from the bush because they are not ready yet, huh..

I’m not a big fan of currants to be honest but it looks just stunning on the pictures, isn’t it?! Like a little red jewels. I dreamed about the waffles with some fruits for breakfast from Saturday night, weirdo haha and this inspired me to finally grab a camera and take some pictures. Because I haven’t took the photos for my blog for about a month! This is serious but I just don’t like summer… weirdo again. And seems like it finally came back to me!

So let’s talk about waffles actually. I have a really easy peasy basic batter recipe for you guys that you can use for both sweet and savory after all! It’s so easy and takes only 15 minutes to prepare it. I like this recipe because it has nothing but milk, flour, butter and eggs. And you can always add some fun ingredients or flavors in it of your choice.

This is absolutely my top recipe for a Sunday morning and you should try it too! But prepare a double batch if you have more than 2 people in your family otherwise you’ll have to fight for these crispy waffles inside and fluffy from the outside 🙂

When you done with batter prepare some toppings for them. Like ANY kind of toppings! It can be fruits, or it can be nuts and fruits, maple syrup, agave, rose petals and jams. Or you can top it with crispy bacon and fried egg or poached egg and avocado and cured salmon! How good is this??? This makes even me hungry right now lol! Today I made a sweet version because this is our little Sunday tradition – eat something sweet for breakfast. And the star of the breakfast were these tiny berries from the farm of course!
