Rhubarb and custard brown-sugar waffles

Camera Press

This simple, batter-based waffle could be the vehicle for all manner of flavour combinations. While we’ve opted for a wintry combination of roast rhubarb and thick hazelnut custard, they’d work equally well with yogurt and summer berries or simply a big scoop of ice-cream and a dollop of warm salted caramel sauce. These waffles are best made and served fresh.

We love the clean flavour of home-cured ocean trout, but shop-bought smoked salmon ro troutwould work very nicely. Begin a day ahead to cure the trout.

Chocolate-chip waffles with chocolate sauce

These Belgian-style waffles are given a hidden crunch by the addition of pearl sugar to the dough. If you can’t find pearl sugar, you could coarsely crush some sugar cubes to achieve a similar effect. Start the recipe a day ahead to prove the dough.
