Christmas morning waffles

(or Boxing Day morning, or New Year's day morning, or one of those weird mornings between Christmas and New Year, as it is sort of ok to be late for work because you were having waffles for breakfast when it is the twenty something-th of December)

These waffles are a twist on one of my go to waffle recipes - A Beautiful Mess' Sour cream and caramelized banana waffles.

But I've added a teeny bit of booze to the sour cream, the left over cranberries you didn't need for your sauces and some Christmassy spices and huzzah. Christmas Waffles, perfect with a glass of bucks fizz to start off your big day.


90g plain flour
30g cornflour
150g sour cream
80ml olive oil (or rapeseed, coconut, vegetable...)
80ml milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ginger
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 baking powder
a small handful of dark chocolate chips
4 clementines
2 tablespoons of your favourite Christmas tipple - I tried mine with brandy and ginger wine
Powdered sugar to serve


Mix together dry ingredients: flour, cornflour, spices and baking powder.
Whisk egg and then beat in the egg, milk and oil into the dry mixture
Take 1 clementine, grate zest, then squeeze in juice to mixutre.
Just before adding the batter to the waffle maker, add in a handful of dark chocolate chips and handful of fresh cranberries (or defrosted frozen ones).

Once the waffles are out of the machine, serve with the segments of 2 of the clementines, and juice the last remaining.

Top with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.

Merry Christmas.

PS. Another waffle recipe... how to brunch with baked ricotta
