Cozy waffles for a rainy day breakfast with my brother! Hey Jonny, did you bring the...waffles?
It was so fun having my brother visit me in Boston this weekend! I got to show him around my favorite spots in Boston, including the Miracle of Science Restaurant in Cambridge near MIT, where the menu is a periodic table - perfect for us chemistry nerds! We also performed in BU On Broadway’s 20 Minute Musical version of The Sound of Music together, which was my brother’s first performance, and so fun! I am so proud of him for going outside his comfort zone to do the show with me!
One day we made apple cider waffles for breakfast, which were so tasty!! We covered them in peanut and almond butter, berries, coconut, and chocolate chips. This recipe is very easy to make, and nice and cozy for a rainy morning. This recipe can easily be made vegan by substituting a flax egg for the egg and maple syrup for the honey. Scroll to the end to see a picture of the vegan version - it is just as tasty as the non-vegan option!
Here is our recipe:
Makes about 10 mini waffles, which was the perfect amount for two hungry people
1 cup apple cider
1 tsp honey
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
a sprinkle of salt
Mix wet ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Add in the dry ingredients and mix well.
Heat and lightly grease a waffle iron.
Pour a few spoonfuls of batter in the middle of the waffle maker and cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until the waffle is evenly cooked.
Let cool slightly, add toppings and enjoy!
