Easter Breakfast Waffles

On Easter Sunday, with all of the chocolate around it’s so nice to start the morning with something that feels a little healthier and our Easter Breakfast Waffles are tasty, great to fill those bellies before we head off for an Easter Egg Hunt.

We love to serve it with whipped butter and then sprinkle with nuts and dried fruit as well as lots of maple syrup. The whipped butter has honey and cinnamon which is the perfect accompaniment to the carrot cake taste and a nice alternative to our normal cream cheese glaze (see our cinnamon roll waffles for the cream cheese glaze if you fancy that instead, it works just as well).

Once we’ve got the whipped butter on top it’s a sprinkle of walnuts and raisins and then LOTS and LOTS of maple syrup poured on top.
