Okay, I went a little crazy with the photos. But come on, how good do those look?
…aaand these photos also remind me of Louis C.K.’s Cinnabon joke. If you want to know what I’m talking about, listen to this video. And if you really want to know what an artist this comedian is, listen to his commentary on the episodes of his show on FX, Louie, or go watch American Hustle.
Something you should also take a look at, Paleomg.com. I’m always using her recipes! Especially the chocolate waffles. Put some strawberries on that with some whipped cream or ice cream and you no longer have breakfast, you have a dessert.
In an earlier post, I mentioned the cinnamon toast waffles at Family Meal and I decided to recreate them and make a paleo-ish version using some of that churro waffle recipe from paleomg. These are very dense waffles, so I also made an attempt to recreate that creamy cinnabon cream they had on the side of the dish at Family Meal to moisten it up a little…aaaand I forgot to measure anything. So, if the directions/ingredients for that part are a little iffy, I apologize. Enjoy!
This makes 6-8 waffles.
3 cups of almond meal/flour
4 eggs, whisked
1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon + a few dashes/sprinkles for coating
2 tablespoons honey
2/3 cup heavy cream or coconut milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
3-6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4-1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
1-2 teaspoons mascarpone cheese, room temp
1-2 teaspoons coconut palm sugar
1-2 teaspoons honey
1. In a large bowl, while your waffle iron heats up, mix together the almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, whisked eggs, vanilla, and heavy cream/coconut milk. Once well combined, scoop mixture into the waffle iron.
2. While they cook, melt the few tablespoons of butter in a dish big enough to dip the waffle in.
3. In another dish, mix together the coconut palm sugar and extra cinnamon.
4. As the waffles come out of the oven, dip a side (or both sides, what the hell) in the butter and then dip in the cinnamon sugar mix.
5. To make the cream: With a beater on low speed, beat together the heavy cream and mascarpone cheese just until combined (don’t make whipped cream!) Then gradually mix/fold/lightly beat the coconut palm sugar and honey into it. Add it little by little, you might not want it that sweet, since you’ll be adding maple syrup on top of these waffles, I’m sure.
By the way, these are great to freeze (pre-dipping in butter and sugar). Just heat them up again in the oven or toaster and then do the dipping part. Good stuff 🙂
