Ingredients

For the Waffles

  • 150 g/ 1 1/4 cup Plain (all purpose) flour
  • 1 tbsp Caster sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 60g / 1/2 cup Dried cranberries
  • 1 Egg (large)
  • 284 ml/ 9 1/2 fl oz Buttermilk
  • 60 g/ 1/4 cup Unsalted butter
  • 1-2 tbsp Whole (full fat) milk
  • 4 Oranges

For the Cinnamon Whipped Butter

  • 50g Unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 tsp Whole (full fat) milk
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon

To Serve

  • Whipped cream
  • Maple syrup

Instructions

For the Cinnamon Whipped Butter

  • Put all ingredients into a small bowl and beat, with electric beaters until light a fluffy

For the Waffles

  • Plug in your waffle maker and leave to heat up (having greased it if necessary)
  • Weight the flour, sugar, salt & baking powder into a medium mixing bowl
  • Finely grate the zest from 1 orange and add to the dry ingredients
  • Finely chop the cranberries and add to the bowl (leaving 2 tsp out for garnish)
  • Melt the butter. Mix with the egg, buttermilk & 1 tbsp milk. Pour into the dry ingredients. Using a wooden spoon mix until just combined - do not over stir
  • Add the additional 1 tbsp milk if you think the mixture is too thick (flours vary). You are aiming for a loose but not runny batter (think cake batter consistency)
  • Peel the oranges and slice each one into 4-5 thick rounds
  • Put 1/4 batter into the waffle maker and cook according to instructions
  • Whilst the waffle cooks, griddle the first serving of orange slices - lay them in a dry (or very lightly oiled) frying pan and cook over a high heat for 2 minutes each side
  • When the waffle is cooked, transfer to plate, top with the orange slices and serve with whipped cream, maple syrup, cinnamon whipped butter and a few of the reserved cranberries. Serve immediately
