Spiced Waffles


We don’t have “sweet” breakfast too often, but when I get a request from my hubby like “light fluffy waffles”, I want to make the best light fluffy waffles for him.

The request was actually even more specific this time, “cardamom cinnamon light fluffy waffles”.



Where did the “cardamom cinnamon” come from, you ask?

Well, we were at a local coffee shop the other day and we saw a “Swedish” coffee drink on the menu.

“Swedish” got me curious and when I checked the description, it said “cardamom, cinnamon, maple syrup”.

So, now you know, this is where the inspiration came from.




We like this Irish butter.

It’s got much darker yellow color compared to regular American butter.

I used my sister-in-law’s recipe for the waffle base, and added cardamom and cinnamon.

These waffles turned out to be super light, exactly as requested!


Spiced Waffles(about 4~5 servings)

1.5 cup all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs separated
1.5 cup milk
6 tablespoons canola oil

1. Separate eggs. Beat whites until stiff.
2. Mix all ingredients together.
3. Fold egg white gently into the batter.
4. Pour the batter on a waffle maker. Cook until golden brown.


Our morning green tea tradition is continuing…

It used to be coffee (strong one) that we would start our day with, but it has changed and the last 10 years the first thing we do when we get out of bed is making green tea.

Terry likes “sen-cha”(traditional Japanese green tea), and I like “kuki-cha”(stem green tea) in the morning.

We also drink tea throughout the day.


This tea bar has been serving us well.
