(Because, obviously.)Also I just purchased a new waffle maker and I’m so in-freaking-love with it that I may have taken it to my place of work and had a waffle party for my coworkers. (Yes we’re at that stage in our relationship now that they can begin to see just how deranged I actually am. It’s a good thing I work with therapists who can therapize me.) So yes, I made brown butter waffles with yogurt and fruit and topped it all with a handful of granola and a drizzle of sticky honey. If heaven were a food-group, I’m pretty sure it would be brown butter waffles. Just saying.
If you’re not into the yogurt and fruit on a waffle thing, first of all- why not?! You should most definitely try it again. And if, after trying it, you still maintain that yogurt is the worst, I will eagerly accept partially eaten waffles for my own personal consumption. Seriously though, if yogurt is not your thing, this waffle recipe can be adapted in oh-so-many ways.Having trouble in the ideas department? I think topping this with brie and raspberry jam, any type of fruit sauce/syrup, or drizzling the entire thing with salted caramel sauce would be out of this world. Eating it just plain, or maybe with a light dusting of powdered sugar would also be delightful.
Brown Butter Waffles with Yogurt and Fruit
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 ¾ cups milk
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ½ cup butter 1 stick
- 2- 2 ½ cups plain yogurt
- 1 pint raspberries
- 1 pint blackberries
- 1 pint strawberries
- 1 cup granola
- Honey to taste (optional)
- Preheat your waffle maker.
- In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt. Whisk well to mix.
- In a separate bowl combine eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk thoroughly to combine.
- Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Swirl intermittently. Watch carefully and as soon as butter browns and smells nutty, remove from heat and pour into a separate bowl to cool briefly.
- Pour egg-milk mixture into dry ingredients and whisk well to combine.
- Drizzle warm brown butter into dry ingredients and whisk until completely incorporated.
- Using a ladle or measuring cup, pour about 1 cup of batter into your waffle maker. Flip and cook per waffle maker instructions (mine takes about 4 minutes, or until steam from the waffles is nearly gone).
- Top waffles with few heaping spoonfuls of yogurt, handfuls of berries, granola, and drizzle the entire thing with honey (optional).
- Serve immediately.
- Makes 5-6 waffles.
