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 www.thesecretlifeofbee.co.za
