Waffles, Fruit and Whipped Cream Oh My

Yes it tastes as good as it looks

Yes it tastes as good as it looks

Waffles, Fruit and Whipped Cream oh my. Yes these are good! I asked my family once everybody was done if I should have changed anything and they all said “NO!” So yes these are very good.

I am going for a bit healthier version here by doing small things such as using Truvia Baking Blend and using skim milk. You cannot not tell.

Because you are making the fruit blend syrup,  whipped cream and waffles for this meal I recommend you first make the whipped cream followed by the syrup fruit blend and finally the waffles.

Ingredients for the Whipped Cream

  • 1 Cup of Heavy Whipping  Cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of Truvia Baking Blend

Whipped Cream whipping steps – I am using a KitchenAid stand mixer

  1. Place mixing bowl and whisk attachment in freezer for 15 minutes
  2. Remove mixing bowl and whisk from freezer and attach to mixer as normal. if your hands are wet and the bowl is metal guess what? You will stick to the metal bowl!
  3. Add Heavy Whipping  Cream and Truvia to mixing bowl
  4. Start the mixer on low speed increasing to speed 8 slowly and mix for a few minutes. You are looking for stiff peeks when you lift up the whisk. Watch and test often.
  5. Put the end result into the refrigerator until you are ready to top the waffles

Ingredients for the Fruit Syrup

  • 1 1/2 Cups Strawberries removing the tops and only cut the larger berries
  • 1 Cup Blue Berries
  • 1 tablespoon of Orange Juice
  • Dash of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of Truvia Baking Blend

Fruit Syrup steps

  1. Place all ingredients in a small sauce pan and mix
  2. Heat until just stating to bubble then continue to heat for about two minutes longer
  3. Turn off heat and let cool

Ingredients for the Waffles 

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Truvia Baking Blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 stick butter  melted – I melted it in the microwave for 30 seconds
  • 1 1/2 cups of skim milk

Mix the batter, cook the batter and finally build it

  1. Preheat your Waffle Iron
  2. Preheat oven to 250 F – this is where you will store the Waffles until they are all done
  3. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl
  4. In a separate bowl beat eggs then mix in milk and melted butter
  5. Add the wet bowl contents to the dry ingredients and mix well. Yes those small pesky lumps are okay.
  6. Pour the batter into your preheated Waffle Iron and cook per manufactures directions. Mine was about 6 1/2 minutes.
  7. Keep waffles warm in oven
  8. Once all the waffles are done it’s time to plate!
  9. Build a plate by placing two waffles on the plate followed by a couple dollops of whipping cream then add the fruit syrup
  10.  Try to eat slowly if you can.
