Waffles at the Point

Last Saturday we taught another class at The Point Cafe in Point Loma. I had made waffles a month or so ago, and as I made them I thought, this would be so perfect to make in a Flour Children Class! Not only are waffles something easy to make, but they allow for some creativity as far as toppings go as well as things you can put into the batter, to modify and make it your own! 

These waffles were made vegan, replacing eggs with flax eggs and dairy milk with coconut milk. We topped the pancakes with grilled berries and mango, maple syrup, powedered sugar…

And we made a cinnamon glaze, too. I just have to say… Making this cinnamon glaze with the kids was so much fun. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but we didn’t plan on making it. We had brought some powdered sugar so we can make it “snow” onto the waffles, but since we also had some coconut milk and cinnamon, it ocurred to me we had everything we needed to make glaze. I taught the kids how to “wing it”, and make something so delicious with jus ta few ingredients. They loved drizzling the glaze into their waffle crevices, and some even said it was their favorite part of class. Mine too.

Add it to the reasons why Flour Children classes are so fun- they’re so relaxed and informal, we’re always ready to try new things and experiment…because, let’s be honest. That’s what’s so fun about cooking. The experiments. And adding a kids’ perspective just makes it even better…
