Waffles, Waffles, Waffles - On CBC Radio
Waffles with Kerän Sanders on the CBC Weekend Morning Show
I had the great pleasure this morning of presenting a wonderful breakfast/brunch treat on CBC Radio's Weekend Morning Show with Kerän Sanders. These recipes can be made anywhere but I highlighted how they can be made with excellent local ingredients.
4 eggs, separated (Vita eggs are excellent)
1 cup milk (local organic available) *OR Club Soda for crispy waffles (I sometimes use twice as much)
3 cups flour (this amount makes a thinner batter) (Freshly milled flour available at Tall Grass Prairie Bakery)
1/2 cup butter, melted (Notre Dame Dairies is a local source for Manitoba)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs sugar
4 tsp baking powder
Beat whites until peaked and set aside or chill. Beat yolks with milk or club soda. Add melted butter without cooking yolks. Sift dry ingredients and add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Fold in egg whites. Let proof for a while until you see bubbles in the batter. Cook in waffle iron without over filling iron. Serve immediately.
1 cup waffle batter (see above)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar, or to taste
1 cup milk
In a sauce pan, cook all ingredients together until it thickens to a smooth sauce. Use over waffles.
2 cups frozen blackberries (available at Gimli Fish) or any fresh seasonal berry
1/2 or more cold water
2-3 tbs corn starch
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
Place berries in a sauce pan and begin to heat. In a measuring cup, combine sugar and corn starch. Mix well with some of the cold water and the lemon juice. This prevents lumps in the sauce. Add to cooking berries and simmer at a low boil for at least one minute to cook the starch. Add water if too thick.
It can be prepared in advance and warmed at service.
