Cranberry Cinnamon Waffles
I'm a breakfast person. I love having toasted muesli with yogurt, warm oats or poached eggs on bread. I guess, if I really have to wake up, I might as well be greeted with something warm, toasty and delicious.
Hubby and I have all kinds of agreement. One is that if I am in charge of lunches and dinners, then the least he could do is to do breakfast and dessert. I know, it's weird but hey, anything to keep a marriage going right?
He makes a mean coffee. Serious. From our little espresso machine given to us as a wedding gift. He did this without going through a coffee barrister course.
So I guess, on long weekends or on some occasional days.. I give him a break now and then and make him breakfast. You know, the kind that men like. Bacon, eggs (scrambled or fried), sausages....
I adapted this from Little Corner of mine. I love how she added cranberries and oats to it! For mine, I added a healthy dose of cinnamon and used buttermilk instead. Oh and for a treat..just a few sprinkles of dark choc chip.
Cranberry Cinnamon Waffles (Around 8 waffles)
