Chocolate chip waffles with fresh berries.

This is a weekend of weddings and all that goes along with it. Emergency trips to the supermarket to buy tights, that I had been assured we had, a constant replenishment of dry towels into all bathrooms, and the planning of meals as wedding breakfasts neither consist of, nor take place at breakfast.  A 1pm wedding usually means you sit down at about 4pm, to lunch. So yesterday brunch was taken at 11.30 to hopefully slow the post wedding slump, and provide something to mop up the champagne during the photos!

Orange juice with bacon and sausage bagels started us off, but brunch needs a  dish that distiguishes it from simply a late breakfast. Right, how about a pudding!

This is the closest I get to pudding at brunch, waffles. Waffles have those lovely dimples that can hold syrup, butter or in today’s case , juicy ripe berries. I used raspberries and strawberries, just cut and allowed to get to room temperature. No sugar, no glaze, no compote, just the warmth of the sun.

Chocolate chip waffles with fresh berries.

Ingredients

125g plain flour

50g chocolate chips

1/2 tsp baking powder

10g caster sugar

240ml milk

1 egg

1 tbsp oil

pinch of salt

How to..

  • sift the flour, salt  and baking powder into a bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre of the ingredients. Break in the egg, pour in the milk and oil.
  • Whisk together until just combined. Don’t be too fierce as the waffles will be heavy.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Heat your waffle maker or iron.
  • Bake waffles according to the makers instructions.

Serve with a spoonful of fresh berries and a little icing sugar.

 

As I had several guests for brunch I made a double quantity, this double mix served 8 people.

    It would do 12 if we hadn’t all been so greedy! Yummy, and thanks for posting the recipe for me – now I need a waffle iron thing.
