Ever since we brought a waffle maker, I have been looking for a perfect waffle recipe  and I guess my search is over. This spelt buttermilk waffles proves that waffles need not be always unhealthy and overly sweet to be delicious. The nutty and wholesome taste from the ancient grains undeniably  elevates the texture of the waffles.

With winter in its true form, having a nice warm breakfast on the weekend is blissful. I come from a school of thought that believes that one should eat  breakfast like a king and these waffles served with caramelised bananas, generously drizzled with honey or maple syrup are perfect way  to kick start your mornings.

Well life is always busy so the idea of making them in the morning on a weekday may not sound promising.  So I always make double the quantity on the weekends and store them in the freezer for a fuss free morning breakfast. I am sure you will love this recipe as much as I do, let me know or tag me in instagram.

HOW TO MAKE SPELT BUTTERMILK WAFFLES

Spelt buttermilk waffles

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup whole grain spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon rapadura sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 orange zest
  • Caramelised bananas with pecan and poppy seed
  • Double cream to serve

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk and butter until they’re well blended.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and zest. Add this dry mixture into the buttermilk mixture.

Spoon about a half a cup of batter onto the hot waffle iron, close, and cook until golden brown.

Serve warm with double cream, caramelised bananas and pecans. Drizzle warm honey and poppy seeds.

To make caramelised bananas, melt 1/2 tsp of butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat.  Sprinkle rapadura sugar. Add sliced bananas. Cook, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm with the waffles.
