Kamut Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream
Good morning everyone!
It’s going to be 80 degrees here in Denver today. Yippee!
Before I set off on a hike with my dog Max…
(isn’t he cute)
I wanted to share with you some yummy waffles I made this morning.
I decided to grind the flakes in my blender and see how they tasted as waffles…
Spectacular! They give the waffles a bit of a nutty taste and texture.
After the April Daring Bakers’ Challenge of Maple Mousse, I am still craving maple so I topped these waffles with Maple Syrup and Maple Whipped Cream.
Kamut Waffles – adapted from The Joy of Cooking Basic Waffle Recipe
remember the baking trinity
1 1/2 c. ground kamut flakes or kamut flour
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. baking powder
1 T. sugar
1/2 t. sea salt
3 eggs, beaten
4 T. unsalted butter, melted
1 c. 1% milk
1/2 c. unsweetened apple sauce
That’s right! Apple sauce!
How can I kill the healthfulness of kamut by loading the waffles with butter?
So I cut back the butter and added apple sauce. It gives the waffles a bit of tartness which really tastes lovely with the maple whipped cream.
Assemble the three seperate types of ingredients together.
Mix them all up with a whisk and let sit for 20 minutes. This batter will be a little thicker than you are probably accustomed to!
Laddle onto a hot waffle iron and cook accordingly.
I can never get perfectly round waffles – can you?
While the waffles are cooking…
Combine 1/2 c. whipping cream with 2 T. maple syrup and beat with a hand mixer until whipped to your liking!
Serve the waffles with maple syrup and a dollop of whipped cream.
don’t forget to serve with a latte and a nice side of Jemaine!
That’s right, Jemaine is sharing breakfast with me!
