German Herzwaffeln (Heart Waffles)
Waffles are a much-loved treat in Germany, for breakfast or for an afternoon snack. Traditional Herzwaffeln are made in heart-shaped waffle irons like this one and served with a simple sprinkling of powdered sugar. If you want to fancy your waffles up a bit more but stay true to German style, try a topping of fresh fruit or even applesauce.
1/2 cup softened butter
2 cups flour
6 tablespoons sugar
1 packet vanilla sugar (available at specialty grocers)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
small pinch of salt
1 cup milk
1/4-1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
powdered sugar and fresh raspberries for garnish
Lightly grease and preheat a waffle iron.
Add all ingredients to your Whiskware™ Batter Mixer and shake until combined.
Pour batter onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
Serve topped with raspberries and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
