Baileys Waffles with Whipped Cream

My family has a thing for Baileys. It’s our go-to after dessert liquor, holiday staple, and even the name of our dog!

These waffles celebrate all things Baileys and are the perfect decadent Christmas morning breakfast (or any other breakfast, because every day is worth celebrating, right?!) They would also work well for dessert, perhaps served with chocolate sauce (#cleaneating).

Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl and make a well in the centre.

Whip the egg whites in a medium bowl with a handheld beater until stiff peaks form.

In a separate bowl, combine egg yolks, sugar, oil, milk and Baileys. Pour into the well in the centre of the dry ingredients and mix until there are no more lumps.

Gently fold in the whipped egg whites.

Heat your waffle iron to a medium-high heat and spray generously with cooking oil. Pour the mix into the waffle iron and cook until golden brown. Repeat with remaining mixture.

While the waffles are cooking, make the Baileys whipped cream by beating the cream, Baileys, vanilla and icing sugar with an electric mixer until very thick.

Serve waffles with whipped cream and berries. Enjoy!
