We use a waffle maker to make our waffles, if you over fill them they make a horrible mess so don’t over fill the cavities. However you can also use a silicon waffle mould and cook them in the oven, but the texture and overall outcome are different to being done in a machine and they taste much naughtier.
One little tip if using a machine, do NOT use frylight on the plates, dab a little oil on a piece of tissue and rub it over the plates before preheating, this keeps the plates clean and prevents them from being ruined by the frylight and makes it easier to clean.
Some recommended items from our kitchen to make our waffles…
- Either a waffle maker or a silicon waffle mould.
- We use a NUTRiBULLET to blend and mix a lot of our recipes, its easy to clean and store and affordable. Also great if you are into health and fitness and have lots of shakes and smoothies. Also great for making iced tea/coffee so is widely used and not just a kitchen ornament like a lot of appliances.
- Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
- Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
- Mixing bowls are always wanted in this household and these stackable ones save so much space in our cupboards.
- Cherry stoner, this saves so much time and faff, and less mess.
- A little gadget that so many ppl over look but is worth getting to prevent strawberry wastage is these nifty little hullers, I also use it for taking out the core of a tomato too.

- 45g Harvest Morn cherry fruit wheats
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon TRKG cherry syrup (See here for info on these syrups)
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 2 heaped tablespoons fat free greek yogurt
- A few drops of cherry flavouring
- Homemade Cherry & Chocolate ice-cream
- Fresh cherries and strawberries
- Preheat your waffle machine (or follow any instructions your machine provides).
- Blitz the fruit wheats in a blender, (don’t worry about the lumps of the fruit as that adds to the recipe keeping them chunky) and tip into a mixing bowl.
- Add the baking powder and give a little stir.
- Whisk the egg, syrup and flavouring together until pale, whisk in the yogurt and pour into the wheat mixture.
- Give a really good mix and leave the mixture to stand for 5 minutes.
- The batter should go puffy and airated.
- Once the waffle machine is heated add the batter into the machine and cook for 5-6 minutes (you may need to experiment here or follow instructions from your machine as they will all vary).
- In a sundae glass layer in your ice-cream, fruit and waffles, grab a spoon and dig right in.
- I added a mini Cadburys creme egg to the one in the photo for a bit more of a treat, feel free to add any extra treats if you wish.
