Deals to Meals, Recipe: Breakfast, Recipe: Food Storage, Recipe: Healthy, Cherry Jubilee Waffles with Cherry Syrup


Just when you think I’ve shared every combination of breakfast waffles and pancakes your way (yes, remember those Beet Pancakes? J), I thought I’d share another fun twist to your traditional waffle recipe. Not to mention, these could be the perfect breakfast in bed for any father's and husbands in your life ;) Since it is fresh cherry season I thought this would be the perfect time to add some fresh cherries to your waffles, and smother the whole thing in a fresh, cherry syrup. Oh boy! Was this combination fantastic! Add some whole wheat to your waffles for a healthier, homemade twist. Hope you are having a wonderful Father's Day weekend.

{Whole Grain} Cherry Jubilee Waffles with Cherry Syrup

3 cup buttermilk (or fruit juice--I had apricot nectar on hand, so I used that)
4 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sour cream or vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
5 tsp. baking powder
1-2 cups cherries, pit removed and cut in half
4-4 1/4 cup flour

Cherry Syrup:

1 stick butter
1 cup apricot nectar or water
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup fresh cherries, pit removed and cut in half


In a large bowl, whisk together the orange juice (can you use fresh of from concentrate), zest of two oranges, eggs and sugar. Whisk until smooth and then add the sour cream, oil, vanilla, baking powder and the flour. Whisk until the flour is combined, but don't over mix. Heat a waffle iron and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Pour a 1/4-1/2 cup of the batter into the waffle iron and bake until golden brown. While the waffles are cooking, make the orange syrup. In a sauce pan, add the butter, orange juice, zest and sugar. Bring the syrup to a low boil and boil until the sugar is dissolved and smooth and silky. Serve the syrup over the cooked waffles.
