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.
