German Breakfast: Waffles with ham

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!

Below, you'll find another delicious way to serve these German waffeles. With a dollop of whipped cream and Rote Grütze ... so traditionally, wonderfully German!

Oma's Easy Waffle Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs 
  • ¼ cup butter, melted and cooled 
  • 2 cups buttermilk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • ½ tsp baking soda 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 2 Tbsp sugar 
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat waffle iron, brushing inside well with oil (or according to manufacturer’s directions) 
  • Preheat oven to 200° F to keep cooked waffles warm until needed. 
  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, melted butter, buttermilk, and vanilla. 
  • In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients together and then add to the egg mixture and stir until well mixed. Let sit for about 5 minutes. 
  • Pour a little of the batter into the waffle iron (check the manufacturer’s directions as to how much) and cook until waffle is golden brown on both sides and easy to remove. 
  • Serve immediately or put into oven to keep warm.
  • This recipe makes about 6  8" waffles.

Hints:

  • Serve with maple syrup, sausages, bacon, or your favorite pancake toppings.
  • Try adding chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or blueberries to the batter! 
  • Waffles taste best when eaten almost immediately, having cooled off just a bit.

Serving Suggestions ... with Cream and Rote Grütze

German Waffles with cream and rote gruetze
  • Whip 1 cup of whipping cream together with 2 Tbsp 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.

Just in case you have leftovers ...

which I doubt ...

these waffles can be frozen and reheated in the oven!

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
