{sms} waffles! brunch!


I had to make waffles for this week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe, so I invited the family over for brunch. The waffles were pretty good (not anywhere near as good as the waffles I had from Bouchon) and the brown sugar bananas were delicious (although my brother said they were too banana-y; how can bananas be too banana-y?)

Flaxseed Waffles with Berries and Honey Cream

flaxseed waffles

I love breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day. I love breakfast for dinner too. I guess I like breakfast for lunch, but usually that is just called a late breakfast or sometimes brunch. I recently made Flaxseed Waffles with Berries and Honey Cream. I found this recipe in my piles of ripped out pages from food magazines. It comes from the January 2009 (fairly recent, so it was near the top of the pile 😛 ) issue of Bon Appetit.

In addition to the flaxseeds, the waffles are made with a combination of whole-wheat and all-purpose flour. You drizzle the waffles with maple syrup, add some mixed berries, and top with a delicious honey whipped cream. Each individual component is wonderful, but in combination it’s spectacular.
