During the school year I like to eat quick and easy items for breakfast. I often eat 2 pieces of toast in the school cafeteria or I grab a yogurt with homemade granola from home. I don’t make much of a production because I don’t have a lot of time. However, summertime is different because I don’t have to rush around in the morning. I still don’t like a big breakfast but I have time to make something a little more substantial.
So when I found out that today’s Sunday Supper theme was waffles I thought I could whip something up. Then I remembered that I didn’t have a waffle iron any more. When we moved 3 years ago I pitched my old waffle maker because it was looking pretty gross, we rarely made waffles, and I paid $5.00 for it. So I didn’t feel too bad about throwing it away.
I still wanted to participate though but I didn’t want to buy another waffle iron as I just cleaned out the pantry and my kitchen cupboards. So I asked my friend Adrienne if she had one and if so could I borrow it. With 4 children I figured she had to have one and I was right. She brought it to me so I could make some tasty waffles for this week.
Since I still had 3 pounds left of the 5 pounds of strawberries I picked a week or so ago I immediately went with a strawberry waffle. I whipped up a strawberry batter but I did not like the way it turned out. On the second try I whipped up vanilla waffles then topped them with fresh strawberries. This was a much better attempt. They looked a little like strawberry shortcake so that’s what I went for.
I ended up using the vanilla waffles and topped them with fresh strawberries, a touch of syrup, and fresh cinnamon whipped cream. They were super easy to make and tasted so good. I really like something sweet in the morning for breakfast so these were perfect. I’ll be honest though, they would also make a great dessert. The cinnamon whipped cream really adds a nice bit a spice to the sweetness of the waffles.

- Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk until mostly smooth. Whisk in the vegetable oil.
- Heat a waffle iron. Pour ½ cup of batter into the waffle iron and close it. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the indicator light turns off to signal the waffle is finished.
- Repeat for remaining 3 waffles.
- To make the fresh cinnamon whipped cream pour the heavy whipping cream into a chilled metal bowl. Using a mixer on medium high speed mix until the cream begins thickening. Add the cinnamon and sugar and continue mixing until thick.
- Break the waffles into 4 pieces. Place 2 or 3 waffle quarter on a plate and layer with strawberries, syrup, and fresh cinnamon whipped cream. Enjoy hot.
