Kumara Waffles With Poached Fruit & Mascarpone

Try these kumara waffles for a deliciously different weekend breakfast

For a breakfast with a difference, try waffles dripping in maple syrup with seasonal stewed fruit and mascarpone. I’ve opted for stewed apples and feijoa which make a delightful match with the kumara waffles, but any poached fruit will work well.

KUMARA WAFFLES WITH POACHED FRUIT & MASCARPONE RECIPE

1 ½ cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda

To serve: Add poached fruit, mascarpone, maple syrup and chopped nuts

1. In a large bowl place the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, cinnamon and ginger.

2. In another bowl combine the eggs, milk and mashed kumara. Pour the wet into the dry and mix well to combine.
