Fresh Apple & Blackberry topped Waffles

Ohhh the deliciousness of fresh made waffles topped with fresh berries....

I indulge in waffles or pancakes just a handful of times a year but after a couple recent recipes - I am starting to wonder why I don't enjoy them more often.

I recently bought a very small waffle iron to be able to create a few fun recipes- and of course- those chunky waffles were on the list.

So simple and easy to make.

You can use a waffle recipe adapted from a long ago recipe- or to keep it easy- an organic pancake/waffle mix works just perfectly. For the topping- I am ALL simple- and about keeping the ingredients down to what you need with none of what you don't.

Berry & Apple topping 

2-1/2 cups fresh blackberries

2-3 fresh apples- sliced or diced to your preference of firmness when heated

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup granulated sugar or Agave nectar -your preference.

After cleaning and cutting your apples- start to simmer them just a bit in a saucepan with your water and sugar. You can also add a tad bit of butter for a more rich sauce- and if you want something thick- grab your cornstarch and add a teaspoon.

Cook over low to medium heat until a bit it starts to thicken and add your blackberries and cook a few minutes longer until they start to 'burst'.

Set aside and let cool for a few minutes while you make your waffles or pancakes and then butter and top away. You can also add a bit of agave nectar or maple syrup if you would like a bit of extra sweetness. The apples and blackberries can be a bit on the tart side depending on what type you use- so totally your preference.

Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy! This topping is also delicious for vanilla ice cream if you are so inclined! :)

Don't miss what my friends are sharing this week as well.
Happy Tuesday all.
