Heart Shaped Waffles

Heart Shaped Waffles | recipe by @bakingwithanastasia

Breakfasts have a special place in my heart. I love breakfasts! Especially weekend breakfast when you have enough time to make pancakes or waffles. I posted already two pancakes recipes: ricotta pancakes and banana pancakes, but this is the first recipe for waffles, heart shaped waffles to be precise 🙂 Aren’t they pretty?:) You may already notice, that I’m a sucker for heart shaped everything, you can find the recipe of heart shaped cookies here and the recipe of heart shaped cake here. Anyways, all waffles are great, not only heart shaped ones! So I promise, this recipe will not be the last one, because I have several favorite waffles recipes, that include sourdough waffles, chocolate waffles, Belgian waffles, orange flavored waffles, etc. So stay tuned 🙂

But for now let’s talk about these heart shaped waffles. They have all hallmarks of good waffles: light, fluffy, with crispy exterior… Super delicious! Additionally they are easy to make and do not need any preparation a night before (like sourdough or overnight waffles for example). So, if you woke up today in the mood for waffles, just make them and enjoy!

Heart Shaped Waffles

Yield: 4 to 5 heart shaped waffles

1 egg
125 ml almond milk
2 tablespoon coconut oil (melted and cooled to room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt

For serving:
Icing sugar
Banana & berries

Directions:
1. Sift flour, salt and baking powder together into a bowl. Set aside.
2. Separate an egg white from a yolk*.
3. In a small bowl whisk milk, the egg yolk, vanilla extract, maple syrup and coconut oil.
4. Pour the milk mixture over the flour mixture, and whisk gently to combine.
5. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg white to soft peaks. Delicately fold in the egg white into the batter.
6. Leave the batter to rest in a warm place for about 10-15 minutes.
7. Preheat the heart shaped waffle maker according to manufacture’s instruction. Grease it with a little bit of coconut oil (if needed) and pour about 2-3 tablespoons batter per waffle (depending on the waffle maker). Bake according to the instructions, about 2-3 minutes till golden brown on the both sides and fully cooked through.
8. Serve warm** with banana slices, fresh berries and maple syrup.
Notes:
* I know that some people think that it’s too much effort & too many dirty bowls to clean up afterward 🙂 You can skip this step, and don’t separate the egg, but I like my waffles fluffy, so I don’t mind some additional 2-minutes work.  If you want a quicker breakfast, just add the whole egg into the milk mixture (step 3) and skip steps 2 and 5.
** To keep waffles warm, put a wire rack in the oven and set it to 100 C (220 F). After removing the waffles from the waffle maker, transfer them in a single, uncovered layer on the wire rack in the warm oven. Keep the waffles in the oven until ready to serve.
