orange & Almond Waffles - A Gemperle Farms Favorite Recipe

A Gemperle Kid’s Favorite

Orange and Almond Waffles are one of the best Gemperle breakfasts ever! A bit of creativity, three Gemperle Eggs and you have a heck of a happy camp on Saturday morning. These are Kids tested and highly approved!  They Taste like a crisp French toast — the best of both worlds — dreamy french toast and crispy waffles. If you are cutting down on gluten and want to add a bit of extra protein to your morning this is the perfect breakfast! We have tried this nutritious breakfast before kids soccer games and the kids seemed to never run out of energy.

Another fun family favorite is Auntie  Heidi’s famous dutch baby pancakes. We have fond memories of puffy dutch babies coming piping hot from her Seattle oven. Everyone has a big wow! on their face. Toss on a few of Heidi’s backyard raspberries fresh from the freezer and warmed up with a bit of maple syrup and we were all on heaven’s breakfast table.

Everyone  loves a Dutch baby, especially with fresh summer berries. You won’t believe how puffy it gets. Tip: it loses it puffiness fast so make sure everyone is on the table when it comes out of the oven.

1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup flour
2 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon butter
1 cup mixed berries with one

Step 1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Step 2. Beat eggs, milk, flour, sugar and salt in bowl until batter is smooth
Step 3. In a 10 inch oven proof skillet place the butter and melt in the oven about 2 minutes. Remove the pan and tilt it to cover the bottom with butter.
Step 4. Pour prepared batter into hot skillet. BAKE in 450°F oven 8 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 375°F and bake for another 8-10 minutes until its golden brown and puffy. Cut it into pie shaped wedges and serve with a spoonful of mixed berries and powdered sugar. If it’s winter time, simply mix fresh frozen berries with warm maple syrup and top your pancake.
