Need an easy waffle recipe? Here's one that's healthy as well. With the added whole wheat flour, these have a nutty taste yet are light and airy.

Anyone else say 'whipped cream and berries?' These are among my best breakfast recipes and also among my best German desserts.

Why? Because they are so good and so easy to serve either savory or sweet!

Easy Waffles with peaches

In the photo above, my granddaughter, Lydia, tried my waffle recipe for the first time. Don't they look fabulous?

She enjoyed hers with farm fresh peaches from the market, and, since she's in Canada, maple syrup drizzled on top. What a lecker summertime combo! Below, you'll find another delicious way to serve these German waffles. 

With a dollop of whipped cream and Rote Grütze ... so traditionally, wonderfully German!

Serving Suggestions ... with Cream and Rote Grütze

German Waffles with cream and rote gruetze
  • Whip 1 cup of whipping cream together with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar. Serve dollops on top of waffles.
  • Rote Grütze or a fruit sauce/preserves over the top of the waffles.
  • Maple syrup always is great!
  • Fresh fruit on the side makes this extra healthy.

Oma's Tip:

Just in case you have leftovers ...

which I doubt ...

these waffles can be frozen and reheated in the oven!

If you want a savory breakfast instead, then serve the waffles with bacon, ham, or sausages. For me, even with the ham below, I still pour just a bit of maple syrup over. So good!
