This was a good brunch I came up with a few weeks ago when I had some honeycomb to use up. I bought some at a specialty Indian grocer awhile back, and thought it would be good in waffles. I was half right. It tasted wonderful – the honeycomb is so pure and rich tasting. But the waffles were a little hard to cook in the waffle iron. The sugars in the honeycomb burned a little, but in a way that tasted good, if that makes sense. Instead of maple syrup, we used some orange blossom honey that we bought in Belize last year. So yummy!!
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
2 tbs sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
7 ounces honeycomb in honey, broken into pieces
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Mix together gently. Make a well in the center. Crack in the eggs, then add the milk, melted butter and vanilla extract. Combine the mixture until a batter forms. Don’t overmix. Now stir in the honeycomb pieces until evenly combined.
Preheat your waffle iron and make the waffles according to manufacturer’s instructions. Make very, very sure you don’t neglect to use melted butter or cooking spray on your waffle iron. This is very important, or the honeycomb will surely stick. Serve warm and enjoy!
