These lightly spiced waffles are designed to show off two quintessentially Canadian ingredients - maple syrup and Red Fife flour. For a properly patriotic start to your day, top off with more maple syrup and some fresh local berries.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup stone-ground Red Fife flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all-purpose and Red Fife flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup and butter. Add to the dry ingredients, and whisk into a smooth batter. Set aside to rest for 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat your waffle iron as per the manufacturer's directions. Spoon in batter (the amount will vary, depending on your waffle maker's capacity), and use a spatula to spread our evenly. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes per batch, or until the waffles are crisp and golden-brown.
  4. Repeat with the remaining batter - you should have enough to make a dozen waffles. Serve immediately with maple syrup.
