tasty Waffles

Last Christmas my lovely Grandparents bought me a selection of kitchen gadgets that I could play around with, one of them being a waffle iron. After a bit of experimentation here’s what I came up with; Pumpkin Spice Waffles. I hope you enjoy them!

** WHAT YOU WILL NEED **

2 cups of self raising flour
2 eggs
2 tablespoons pumpkin spice, my recipe here
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar & berries to serve

tasty Waffles

** WHAT TO DO **

Preheat and grease your waffle iron. In a large bowl sift in your flour and add your pumpkin spice and sugar. Whisk in your eggs, vanilla and milk. Continue to mix until a smooth batter has formed and pour into your waffle iron. Cook until crisp. Serve with some fresh berries and a light dusting of powdered sugar.

Arrow * I just love the simplicity of the lettering on this super cute tee from ASOS. Plus it’s a steal at only $25. Find it here.

* Jess from Jess Classy has been hosting some guest posts lately, including my sugar free blueberry muffins (thanks Jess!) All of which I have thoroughly enjoyed reading. My fave guest post however had to be from Blogger (also) Jess of 26 & Not Counting, who shared her Weight Loss Story. A super motivating read and perhaps best of all honest and to the point without all that mushy stuff. Read it here.

* There’s no denying that Kaelah from Honey Bee in the City is one of my favourite Bloggers. Kaelah has been posting a bunch of cocktail recipes all of which look super tatsy. I recently tried her Sweet Blueberry Mojito  which was amazing!

* I recently indulged in a Matcha Green tea Latte at a local cafe and was instantly hooked. I was even happier when I discovered you can make your own at home using  Matcha Green Tea Latte Mix which is available online. I purchased mine here but there’s also a heap on Amazon if you’re looking for shipping outside of oz.

* Keeping with the season (Halloween!) this “Raining Bones” print on Society6 is a must have. Well for me at least! Find it here.

* This Strawberry Ice Box Cake from Lets Dish Recipes looks absolutely mouth watering. Find the recipe here.

* This Scribbe Box Font by KC Fonts is perfect for those quirky designs that require a unique touch. I just love the crosshatched lettering.

* I just love kooky dress from ASOS. It reminds me of the movie that I as a kid I found equally interesting as I did terrifying; Beetle Juice. ArrowSignnn
