Mother’s Day recipe: Fluffy vanilla waffles

We’ve teamed up with food stylist Bianca Davies to bring you a delicious, and decadent waffle recipe for Mother’s Day, which pairs beautifully with Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut 2016. Trust us, mom will love you even more.

“These vanilla waffles are indeed love at first bite,” says Bianca. “They have a super crispy crust to them and a fluffy vanilla scented centre. I love them with berries and honey while the husband opts for butter and maple syrup. They are a vehicle for delicious toppings like caramelized cinnamon bananas or plain Jane as they are with a dusting of icing sugar.” See more of Bianca’s incredible work on

Fluffy Vanilla Waffles (Makes 3 large waffles)


170g flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

25g sugar

1 large egg, separated

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp vanilla paste

340ml milk, warm

75g melted butter


To serve: fresh berries, honey, icing sugar, whipped cream or ice cream and of course an ice cold bottle of Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut 2016



Heat your waffle iron according to manufacturers instructions.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, milk, vanilla and butter. Whip the egg white until fluffy.

Add in the cream of tartar and whisk until soft peaks form.

Whisk together the wet and dry ingredients, and finally fold in the egg whites with a spatula until combined.

Ladle the batter into the waffle iron and cook until golden brown and crisp.

Serve with a dusting of icing sugar, fresh berries, a drizzle of honey and a cold glass of Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut 2016.
