Corn Waffle with Apricot Compote

Corn Waffle made with yellow cornmeal flour and served with fresh apricot compote.  These waffles are super healthy and delicious when served with fresh fruit preserves or any toppings.

Waffle is one of the most popular sweet breakfast in South America and several other countries of the world. Normally waffle is made with a batter of leavened plain flour which isn’t as healthy for breakfast as it should be. What if it could be healthier and you won’t regret eating as many as you want.

This week I will be doing recipes for Kids Lunchbox and one of my girl’s favourite dish is breakfast for lunch. They love toast, sandwich, paratha, waffle or pancakes in the lunchbox. So I always try to make them healthy and filling. Such as these Corn waffle which tastes amazing with sweet and slightly tart apricot compote.

I used fresh apricots as they are the seasonal best but as always you can substitute any fresh or frozen fruit, creme fraiche, yoghurt, honey or anything to top your waffle.
