Fluffy Waffles with Peach and Wild Strawberries

Fluffy Waffles with Peach and Wild Strawberries

Last Friday evening I suddenly craved waffles and only 20 minutes later I had a whole stack of them – that was pure bliss!

I love this recipe because it is so light and fluffy – no butter or fat is used (except to grease the waffle iron). Of course, you can serve them with any fruit, I chose a very sweet combination: peach and wild strawberries from my garden. ❤Whatever decoration you choose, these wonderfully light and crisp yet fluffy waffles can definitely save your day – and the day of all those who will get to taste them, too!
