Earl Grey Waffles

I'm really more of a savory breakfast person. But there's something about fresh waffles that just makes it for me. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. The taste of butter… hmmm…. But I digress.

I'd been craving Earl Grey goodies for a couple of weeks, and I figured it would totally work as a waffle concept. I'm not going to lie: this recipe was a success! I'm very happy with the subtle tea flavor of the waffle, which could even be enhanced by adding ground leaves in the batter. I didn't have any on hand, but maple syrup would totally kill on top of those babies!

So easy, few ingredients, very quick and absolutely divine with a freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and orange slices.

Oh, and if you don't have a waffle-maker, just make pancakes! ;)

Bon appetit!!

INGREDIENTS (yields 6 waffles):
- 1 1/2 cups AP flour
- 1/2 cup corn starch
- 3 tbsp granulated sugar
- a pinch of salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup brewed Earl Grey (very concentrated)
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 2 eggs, separated

- put all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and add all the wet ingredients (except the egg whites) progressively until blended smooth

- gently fold in the whipped egg whites until just combined

- ladle in a waffle-maker or if you don't have one, cook like pancakes

- seve freshly cooked, hot with a little square of butter and a light sprinkle of confectionner sugar
- Enjoy!


  1. C'est une très bonne idée ; le earl grey dans la sauce de magret, j'adore , alors dans la pâte à gaufre , ça doit être extra !

  2. merci miss! c'etait vraiment tres reussi je dois avouer :) J'avais fait des cupcakes a l'earl grey l'an dernier egalement et c'est tres bon. Je pense que dans une pate a crepe, des sables ou meme des scones ce doit etre bien aussi. A essayer ;) Je vais aussi essayer avec le canard. ca doit etre tres bon! bisous
