.Pimms O Clock waffles
Pimms season is officially upon us, the sun is out, and if ever we needed a drink at 6pm it’s right now. It is Pimms O’Clock all week. This recipe comes hot on the heels of my making waffles with gin and tonic for World Gin Day
- 1¾ cup self raising flour
- 1 tablespoons caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1¾ cup milk (you could use coconut milk if you wanted to dairy free)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- Glaze:Pimms ./ Icing Sugar / lemonade
- Garnish: Strawberries, cucumber, mint
- Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl whisk all the wet ingredients.
- Mix two bowls together and beat until you have a batter like consistency (dont worry much about any small lumps, waffles are forgiving).
- Cook as per your waffle maker instructions.
- Stack waffles
- In a bowl mix together the glaze ingredients, until the icing sugar is dissolved (I use Pimms for this to add maximum Pimms flavour). Then if you want to make it slightly thinner for drizzling, use some lemonade.
- Pour glaze over warm waffles and then garnish with fruit for full Pimms effect
It couldn’t be more simple. The waffles are child friendly as there is no Pimms in them, so you can do a big batch with the kids, letting them have some for tea, and then when they have gone to bed just put the Pimms glaze in a jug and allow the adults to do their own.
I guarantee you’ll want seconds. And the strawberry and cucumber counts towards two of your five a day, so everyone’s a winner.
